If you go large on the injectors and dont have a big enough turbo to clean the fuel out, you're going to run into problems with high EGT's and the truck will not be very driveable. Those two mods should really be done at the same time. What size injectors were you planning on going with? If you kept them real small it'd be OK without a larger turbo right away.

Well, I can reccomend this much. I have tuned trucks, and you can get by with fairly large injectors with the base fuel densitys turned down. Now you install a 64 or 66mm non-vgt turbo and you will not spool it with stock injectors. Just my two cents.

I agree with that. I also did my injectors first before I did my turbo, for what's worth.

Yes I do have some lag, but that can be dealt with depending on how you are on the throttle. Light on the throttle, almost no lag. Heavy on the throttle, you have a pretty good lag. Not really any different if you were using a stock setup. Lag really isn't worse then a stock setup, but it is there if you try to mesh it down to the floor and do a hard launch.
