Because its just above stock, will run fine n clean up the stock injectors, but its smaller then the garrett n vgt-ss.

I am asking because I have one and I got it for the reasons that you stated above. Anyway I would just buy a stock replacement instead of a VGT SR if I was doing it again.

I ran an industrial 62/70 for a little with stock injectors. stay with a vgt with stock injectors. there is a bit of a deadspot around 50 or so on the non vgt. elite's sr, garrett powermax, a stock replacement or 03 turbo are all good options for stock injectors.

I got a Garrett PowerMax turbo and love it. Slightly larger than stock '03 turbo and brand new, not a rebuild like most aftermarket VGT upgrades, cheaper too.

What kind of improvements are you seeing ?
EGT's , boost psi, MPG's
I am thinking of getting one.
Where did you get it from?

Thanks

Right now I'm running stock programming still, so it is just a hair laggier than stock, but not bad. Cruising on the highway I'm seeing 50-100* lower EGTs and 2-3 lbs lower boost. This is due to the larger exhaust housing and bigger intake turbine, it moves more air at lower pressure, which helps make it more efficient as it gets the air it needs with less back pressure. MPGs seem to be up about 0.5-1 mpg, but I haven't put enough miles on it to be sure. I got it from Aden at GOS Performance.
