If you're looking for a little more oomph out of your Duramax, this drop in replacement Garrett PowerMax turbo will give you that, and more.

Designed to support up to 500 RWHP, the Stage One PowerMax features a patented Advanced Variable Nozzle Turbine(AVNT) design for increased compressor and turbine flow in order to keep drive pressures, as well as EGT's (Exhaust Gas Temperatures) at a minimum. This turbo is a great compliment for those running a moderate to extreme programmer that use their trucks for daily driving or towing. Due to its ball bearing cartridge, journal bearing cartridge failures are a thing of the past, as well as will provide enhanced bottom end response compared to the factory unit, all while being able to handle higher boost pressures.

Just had this turbo installed as a replacemen...
Just had this turbo installed as a replacement to the stock one that had bearing failure. Mostly was interested in the fact it had addressed the bearing issue. After my first drive all I can say is WOW!!! My truck never pulled like this before, even when new. The whine from the exhaust is cool, sounds like a semi truck. (some may not like this) but it is obviously moving more air. Now to see if fuel economy improves. NOTE-do the LBZ turbo inlet feed upgrade at same time. We have MBRP exhaust with Bully Dog tuner

Awesome turbo
This is one screamin turbo. From the second you cross 1100 RPMs you sound like a semi hauling a 50 foot trailer. The amount of air this thing moves and the speed at which it spools is impressive. I only have my PPE tuner on level two for the safety of my 175000 mile transmission and because I dont have a lift pump, but its a beast at that. I'm running slightly lower boost than stock because with the EGR delete it runs at a lower boost due to the increased efficiency, but It's as fast as the stock turbo was on bully dog extreme setting. The way in which the power is delivered is smooth and drivable. The only downside to any turbo really on a Duramax is you're looking at a pretty hefty install charge from a shop or setting aside a couple days. I have an aftermarket intake pipe, a magnaflow downpipe to 4 inch straight exhaust out the back. Combined with the sinister EGR blocker plates the truck really does drive like a brand-new diesel, absolutely smooth throughout the entire power band and a smooth not rough ramp up of the boost.

Just put a power max stage 1.in my truck. What should I install for the air intake? I got a 4"" exhaust and EFI live programmer and egr delete. This truck tows a lot .or can I use it with my stock air in. I don't want to ruin another turbo.?

Although the stock intake my work fine on this application for a short time, You will notice a large gain in going with a aftermarket intakes. We would suggest and recommend the S&B Intake.

Are you able to use stock injectors with this stage 1 turbo or do you have to upgrade fuel delivery and injectors??

You could use that turbo with stock injectors and fuel system.
