nozzles for a 190

OK I am going to start off by saying I know this is probably going to start a huge debate so please do not let it get out of hand or I will have mitch close the thread. Next month I will be ordering bigger injectors for my truck and sending my ficm to Ed. I know that I am going with a 190 but the question I have is is a 150 nozzle too big for a 190. I know almost everybody runs a 100 nozzle with a 190 but I also know of one guy on this forum that ran a 190/150 and a 190/100 and said the 150 ran away from the 100. Hoping to hear some more opinions. The reason I am looking at the 150 nozzle is i have future plans for bigger injectors that will need a 150 nozzle so this way I will only be buying the nozzles one time.

That answers your question right there Gary. Personally I think that 150's are overkill for a 190. It is likely gonna smoke pretty good till you get some boost going and every time you go to accelerate. With the end goals you have though and based on the above go for it.

The bad part about big nozzles is that you can't control them near as easily. Smaller nozzles can be tuned much easier. Why not just install the big injectors now? If I'm gonna rip into my engine, I'm sure not going to do it twice. Do it once, do it right.

Ding Ding DIng ^^^^^ winner. Do the injectors once. Tune them down to save the other parts for now until you get the installed.

I agree, just get the bigger injectors right away. It will save you time and money in the long run. How long do you plan on running the 190s, if it is a long time, like a couple years, I would just get them build with nozzles that are properly sized. Then get the m rebuild and up-sized later.

I don't really want to get into my build plans to much yet lists just say I can't go with the bigger injectors yet because almost 400cc of fuel would not be good without the huge turbos I have planned
