How much weight do you tow? The powermax and a set of 155-175 injectors will be a good towing and DD driving combo.

65mm turbine wheel with a diverter should spool quick. talk to shawn ellerton about it. he is running that on his tow truck and loves it. as far as sticks, keep them small if you wanna tow. i prefer stock for towing honestly.

could be vgt or non vgt

just making sure you have the right compressor/turbine/housing combination is right for the 6.0 for quick spoolup. some are saying a 64/71/70 with a diverter valve spools great with bigger injectors, but its still going to be too laggy IMO for towing that kind of weight.

Like matt said, shawn has a 62/65/80 with the diverter as the high pressure charger on his tow truck. Even a 64/71/70 with the diverter will still be a bit laggy for towing i think, but maybe not IDK. You want a smaller wheel so it'll spin faster. With a 62mm...you'll want a turbo like shawn has. With a 64mm i think you'll want a 68 wheel, nothing bigger for real quick spool up. Tyler has a 64/68/80 with the diverter and it spools pretty quick i guess. I've been wanting to change some stuff on my turbo to make it spool quicker...and i think what i gotta do is get rid of the 71 wheel and go for a 68. Might have a turbo spec'd out. I wanna stay with a 64...and i'm gonna see about doing a 64/68/80 with billet wheel and a ceramic coated housing.

Exactly what 6lstrokin said, If I go non vgt its going to be a 64/68/80, I dont tow heavy so it wont be too big of a factor with being a little laggy but it should spool up just fine with a diverter valve. I dont have one but when do people start making boost with the powermax? I think a 62/65/80 with a diverter would be a quick spooling setup with a 155cc injector maybe even 175's.

6l strokin do you have a diverter valve setup yet?

Not yet. If my housing was divided...there would already be one on it. And since it i need a divided housing i'm thinking about changing more stuff with it. I just might as well get a whole nother turbo tho. Because once i get the ceramic housing, a 68mm turbine wheel, 64mm billet compressor wheel and the diverter valve....it probable would've been easier to just get a whole new turbo with them options. Might try II and see what they can do about a 64/68/80 with billet wheels and ceramic coated housing.

lol tyler has a 65mm turbine wheel. if you want to tow with a non vgt you are going to want to stick to a 65mm wheel.

will the 65mm wheel vs the 68mm wheel make that big of a difference towing light?

I wish I had the cash to pick up your turbo

i dont know that one. i have never used a 68mm wheel but its supposed to light nice and flow well. what size charger are you looking for.
i will probably be selling my polished 64/71/70 soon but i dont recommend it for towing.

you've got the diverter valve on it right matt? When does yours start making boost at? Does yours have a billet compressor wheel also?

donzi says his spools quick with the 68. im sure its slower than a 65 but cummins guys say its awesome. if my turbo guys carried a 68 i would have tried it a long time ago lol.

i honestly dont know lol. its running like crap because im too lazy to pull it apart and swap nozzles and 2 spool valves. my nozzles are way to small and it wont fuel hard without a ton of fuel commanded. i have nozzles sitting here on my bench but with my race truck i have no time. im actually taking a week or two off from working on them cause i have too many projects in the shop. i actually think im going to tear it down and do twins on the orange truck. im trying to choose between two setup lol.
