Stage 2 on stock injectors?

Would a Barder stage 2 perform alright on stock injectors? Of course it would need tuning, but I feel as though the stock injectors couldn't spool it as efficiently as it should. This would be a temporary setup until I can rack up the cash for some bigger injectors.

Go for it. I love my MTW Stage 2 and would recommend it to anyone. Spools very fast.

Yeah you can pretty much get an stage turbo on stockers. but the thing is lag will be there if you dont have the fueling to push it some. But regardless the bigger the turbo the more lag no matter what... Thats actually what I was thinking about doing was going with a stage 2 from Barder until I could get the money together for 175/75s and it was alright James said. You could even push some good power from stock sticks and a Stage 2.

Don't forget FICM tuning can be used to help a larger turbo on stock injectors.

My Barder stage 2 spools just fine on stock sticks. I dont really have plans for larger injectors either.
