New Injectors Reccomendation

So I have a bad injector and am about to replace the full set. I have APR head studs, egr delete, intake, banks exhaust, SCT custom tune, and the fuel spring installed. I have the stock turbo and fuel system.

The question is: what injectors do I use? Doesn't really make sense to use stock again.

I was thinking either 155 or 175, but which would give the best power, but also not hurt mpg and still allow me to tow.

What about larger than stock nozzle?

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks!

Do it right and buy Ford remans, they replace the plungers and the spool valves unlike the rest. Stock is going to be the most reliable. My recommendation is start fresh with ford remans, keep the stock nozzle, and have the plungers machined to 155-190cc.

Are you looking for most power or just good all around size? I have 155's and ran them for over a year with the stock turbo. They didn't seem to affect mpg either way, but they gave a very noticeable increase in pulling power. This thing tows awesome (especially with the aftermarket turbo). The increased torque at cruising speed was the first thing I noticed. Not having to downshift on hills that it use to. I'm not going to persuade you either way. Just wanted to let you know first hand experience with 155/30's.

I guess I'm looking for the most "reliable and usable" power without killing my towing ability. I kind of thought 175 would be too large for a stock turbo but I'm not sure. What is the benefit/problem of increasing the nozzle size?

I'd go with 155cc/30% injectors from Sheldon at Renagade. But, the question is, do you have a fuel pressure gauge? You may need to upgrade your fuel system.

I have to say that I agree with the recommendation for the use of Ford reman injectors as your base to start with, but you have to ask yourself right now what you want your truck to do and how far you want to take it. There really is no problem with increasing nozzle size, it just adds to the cost of the injectors. Tuners can pull fuel to help keep temps and smoke down. Eitherway though since you are looking to be able to tow, I think anything from 155/30s to 175/50s should work for ya pretty good. Also you NEED to get a fuel gauge so you can see what's going on with your fuel pressure as you are going to be putting a higher demand on your system as you go with more fuel. Hope this helps.
