Your better off telling the pro's what your goals are. Do you plan on towing? If so how much weight?

Are you looking for raw power or are you gonna throw drugs on it?

What about gauges/monitor?

And the most important, how deep are your pockets? A good set of injectors aren't cheap, and depending on what you want, there are the supporting mods.

I hear regulated returns and supporting aftermarket fuel pumps are key to the longevity of aftermarket injectors (and clean oil)! I have a powermax and am still debating on whether to go with casserly 175s or 190s due to their price being the same, I don't want to put the 175s in and later on say, "wow, I could have put the bigger ones in for the same price." I have the Reg Return, airdog, intercooler, powermax...all but the tranny upgrades which would soon follow injectors

I have an edge cts monitor for gauges and its going to be my dd but im also going to hit the strip and eventually want to hook it up to a sled. As far as injectors go the price doesnt really concern me i just want to know like younger said if im going to wish i had put 190cc in instead of going with 175cc and a powermax turbo.

If you arnt going to tow I would go 190s. It's hot and smokey set up but it will make power. And would make alot more with spray but i don't think the turbo would last long at all doing that. Or the tranny.

Matt's truck was a smokey pig with the 190's and a PowerMax.. The PowerMax can't clean them up.. And I don't see the turbo lasting very long with 190's.. I'd stick with 175's if you want a good reliable daily driver. There's not too much difference between 175's and 190's..

ok...I think that did it for me, as long as you think 175s will break 500 RWHP. I need longevity..that's why I'm dumping in extra cash for casserly..I don't want to have to buy yet another turbo! Thanks for the info, hello 175s
