injectors

did a lil research but didnt want to spend hours lookin for what i wanted. whats the run down on injectors. Thinking about 190's but how much horsepower are the 190's and 205's over stock and are they decent with stock turbo and do they hurt mpg or anything else?

190 is the max on a stock turbo your gonna see some high temps as it is, 205 is way to much in my opinion, I ran 190's on a stocker for 3 yrs but I kept an eye out on everything. If all your gonna do is just upgrade injectors 175's with a stocker will be just fine.

190's are the biggest you will want if you have any question on mpg. People are really liking the new powermax turbo with 190's and below for both power and mpg.

Because the prices vary from each injector builder, some build injectors from cores but can have problems with them, some build with brand new in the box injectors then they modify them from there, Core's turned into built injectors your looking at 1400-2000, for a fresh set of injectors then built your looking 2800-3400. You pay for what you get.

Honestly cant really till your the HP gain because it varies with a stock turbo my guess 450-475 before you start to run out of air flow. 190's can be good for 600hp with the right set-up.

if you go up to 190 with stock tubo you will have to worry about temps and mpg will be down. with 155 inj you will not have to worry about temps as much and you can get better or the same mpg. But you relly should get a turbo to match your injectors

all depends on the tune, how you drive, gearing, tire size, mechanical condition of the truck. there are so many variables. some guys trucks run real hot with 155s, some run cool with 190s. so many variables. If you can get all the parts at once, sweet otherwise get a set of injectors under 190 for a daily driver and then get a turbo setup that will work for you. also, with good tuning 190s work well with a stock turbo. honestly my favorite setup I have had in the truck. can get hot with your foot in it but who runs their truck like that everyday anyways?
