You can do it. Just make sure you get a tune built for it.

What are your long term plans? Do you mind working on it and doing the work yourself and building it up as you go? If not each step will require different tuning to run optimally, just keep that in mind.

30's cover just about everything you need, unless you need more.

Well I am going to do injectors in the next week or 2, after that I will be doing Turbo and fuel when i round up the funds and time, then the plan is to build a trans to go into it. The truck is quickly becoming my toy instead of my daily driver which is fine with me, I should be inheriting my wifes car when she gets a new one. I understand that i would be needing tunes for each step but I feel like that would just be cheap insurance for the truck. And yes I plan on doing everything myself with the help of you all of course!

Go 175\30, you'll be able make them work with your stock parts for now with proper tuning, then you can build on them later. At least a blue spring upgrade or a regulated return setup would be wise to protect your new injectors.

I have 175/stock injectors and I love them. I'm upgrading to 175/75 only because mine are being replaced cause of some cold start issues. As mentioned earlier, the underlying goal of the truck will dictate what you opt to go with. You can run 175cc injectors with a stock turbo and transmission and not have to worry about breaking something too bad because you're not overdoing the truck at the point...as least that's my $0.02. 175's will give you great power, my mpg's went up 3-4 depending on how I drive and I'm currently running a stock turbo/trans.

Just ask yourself: Am I trying to make 600+ hp or do I wan't a fun reliable toy?

That's gonna dictate the injector you go with. Also talk to the injector builders and seek their advice/opinions. I talked to both Jesse and Sheldon and based on the intended use of my truck, they virtually suggested the same injector.

I have done the Blue spring already and Can get with Wildman again about tuning the truck to run the 175's. I will have to call Warren tomorrow and see if they can make my nozles 175 instead of 155. I am starting to get really excited about the way this is going.

175/75's are difficult to tune for everyone, I know I've tried a lot of 'em.

As has been said in numerous posts about injectors, go with a consistent bump in injector body and nozzle to be able to tune correctly... I.E. 175/30 190/50 I believe.

It does you no good to have a nozzle bigger than body and try to tune around it.
Each truck is different as is each drivers sensitivity to driving scenario. I.E. what one guy feels is perfect is barely acceptable to another.

My hybrid w stg 2 wheel cannot clean up 175/75's with Viv or Eric's Tunes, Tony can clean it up but you can tell it's not near as strong. I'm not saying Tony couldn't tune it to match the #'s of the others but it would be as smokey as theirs too.

I"m waiting on a set of 175/30's with hopes it will feel just as strong since it will be tuned optimally and the Tq and Hp as well as MPG be perfect.

If it was me i'd search the forum for injectors and read the 90+ pages of info. and know what I wanted before making a decision you likely won't be happy with and will end up doing it all over again, again and again.
