Injectors?

I just had a complete engine rebuild on my truck, virtually one of the only things they did not replace was the injectors. I now have ARP studs an the whole nine yards. I plan on upgrading my turbo eventually to a hybrid or powermax, along with upgrading my fuel system.

My injectors are sticking and need replaced sometime in the near future. I want to upgrade them for better fuel econ and performance. I don't want to go too big because really, I don't need to be pushing 600hp. But I would like some sort of performance boost. What is the next step above stock or what is best for fuel econ?

155s are the next step up and if you keep the stock nozzle it will help keep your fuel economy and give you alittle boost in power. Also I would go with warren diesel for injectors.

Would it be bad to go up to 175cc?

No you can always have fuel pulled if you need to and if I were you I would go with the 175/stock or 30. That injector will work well with the hybrid turbo

You can run 175's with a stock charger and stock fuel system just fine. Just need to have some fuel pulled with the stock charger because your temps will get HOT, quick, fast and in a hurry. I have pegged over 2000 EGT's with my old 175/stock injectors.

I vote 175 with stock nozzles...

I just had mine done. On a race tune they run fast and hot, but on my tow tune or stock tune you don't even notice they are in there. Best of both worlds

Yeah in your custom tune. You would need to have the file writer pull fuel throughout the RPM range so that this doesn't happen.
