The II stage 1 is a 62mm turbo and the powermax is a 63.5 I think.

Are you thinking about going vgt again?

I would say the powermax, no core charge and a bigger turbo for less money. proven to make 550 hp.

The PowerMax is a great turbo, plus its BRAND NEW, no core charge, and cheaper. There isn't a way to lose there.

probably. but you will have a much more streetable combo. its hard to get a non vgt to be tuned wthout some deadspots, or essentialy make it as streetable as a vgt

Re: garret powermax vs II stage 1

So this 62/70 that the fella's are running from Industrial Injection...why don't they have it on their website?
They only show the 2 different VGT style turbo's.

And have you seen their twin kits??? I think they could have used more pipe, and less silicone piping...

Excellent value for sure, but I sure would like to see the graph for 550 proven hp. What is next, someone thinking it will do 600?

Nope, a really good engine with 190's and a vgt is in the 530-540 range on a good day. Turbo 99 made 590ish with 200's and a 64 non vgt, but I noticed lately he calls them 190's so idk.
