Injectors!

Okay guys, I do not know anything about injectors, and I have been searching on the forum and reading about them, but do not fully understand what the number mean. Could someone give me a good description what the 160/30 means? Or however it is written. Looking to get new performance injectors for my 2003 ford excursion 6.0l , but before that happens I need some knowledge on them! Thanks in advance!
Cory

I believe it means 160cc of fuel, nozzles flow 30% over stock. But I may be wrong these powerstroke injectors can be confusing!

I'm pretty sure the first number is the amount of fuel the injector can put out, rated on a certain number if shots... The 2nd number is how much the nozzle flows over stock, the bigger the number the quicker the injector will "drain" itself. I hope this helps a little, and like I said if nothing else I will keep it at the top so someone smarter than me will see it!

First number is the size in CC's and the second is nozzle size over stock. 160/30 are 160 cc injectors with nozzles that flow 30% over stock.

It's my understanding that the first number ie: 135,155,175 etc... in the volume of fuel the injector will displace in centimeters...per 1000 pulses. The injectors are fired on pulses. So a 175cc injector holds .175 cc of fuel. The next number, I understand to be the size in relation to the nozzle as compared to stock. So if your number is 175/stock, you have an injector that will displace 175 cc of fuel in a 1000 pulses and has a stock nozzle. If the number was 175/30, that means the injector displaces 175 cc of fuel in 1000 pulses but the nozzle is 30% larger than a stock injector nozzle so it will empty the injector of fuel faster in that pulse. I think.
