in addition to your current mods, add an ficm tune, 190/75's and a race tune and you'll be just shy of that.

He is referring to 190cc injectors with 75% over stock sized nozzles. You can get a FICM tune from Power Hungry Performance (PHP), Innovative Diesel Performance (IDP), and KEM Performance.

Warren Diesel seems to be the choice for cost-effective injectors...

No worries. Warren Diesel hands down the best place to go IMO. Your FICM is called "the upgraded model" because it is 58v and not 48v. Like PCMs or ECMs, FICMs have programming or strategies, if (when it was all said and done with the core charges) you paid in the neighborhood of $600 for your FICM then you most likely have one with the latest Ford strategy. IDP does offer their own strategy which helps remove a lot of the restrictions in the factory programing for emissions and such to allow for more power, better fuel economy, and throttle response.
