I would recommend a Powermax with a batmo wheel with 190cc sticks or 175cc-75% sticks also along with the tuning. The batmo is not needed but is a nice little gain.

If you're gonna do injectors, I would do the Airdog to keep them happy.

wow 3 ficms go bad? mines stock and no problems.. *knock on wood* you can run it a pmax with stock injectors but it will be laggy but you can get it tuned to help it out.
