Injectors or turbo upgrade first??

im going to do a upgrade to either the injectors (probably 175s) and a turbo upgrade (MWT hybrid or s360) but i can only do one or the other first. so which one would be my best option? i was thinking injectors first but them my egts will be outta control. maybe not, idk haha. what do you all think? i have a airdog fuel system and the blue spring mod to support injectors as well

Thats a tough one because they both go hand in hand. I would just save up and do both at the same time.

First, I'd get rid of the airdog. :

Really though, I was running 175/stocks with an oem turbo and my egt's were manageable. You can also have your tuner pull fuel to help keep the egts under control. If you're dead set on doing something right away, then I'd go with injectors first but if you have have time, I'd save up and do them both at once.

I just did 175cc/stock injectors and hsave a stock charger with a batmowheel. Egts are fine with my full fuel tune, and smoke I can control pretty well with my foot. I'd say go injectors first, u won't regret it. I haven't towed yet but will in a couple weeks, I don't expect any problems.

Ported intake manifold would be a better option. Improved airflow will only add to the gains from a larger turbos or injectors later down the road.

i honestly dont see the point in going with this first. yes it helps but it can wait for sure.

op i would say injectors first and then turbo. either way it honestly doesnt matter but injectors you will feel the power, turbo you will have to wait to feel the power gain until you get injectors. you will feel a slight increase but nothing like you will with injectors

X2 with what rdunagan said. Big injectors and a stock turbo is lots of fun from personal experience. If you need to tow use your stock file or have someone write you a tow tune if your concerned about egts.

I did injectors first...then bought a IIS hybrid. Sold the hybrid and went back to my stock 03 and put a billet wheel in it and I swear the 03 with the billet wheel is performing better than the bigger hybrid I was running. I would do sticks first then the bigger snail. I will say this as a warning... It will never end from here. Your going to want more and more and more........
