Flow rates/ Nozzles and the like are the biggest difference Stages 1-3 and hybrids.

What power levels are you looking to make?

Stages 1-3, but there's more out there than that

Stage 1's use stock nozzles, stage 2's and up use bigger nozzles

You cant really give a horsepower number to the injectors,

Normally a stage 1 is a 160cc injector with stock nozzles

Stage 2 is normally a 160cc with 80% or 100% over stock nozzles

then you get to hybrids which can be all kinds of sizes and nozzles, one of the more common ones are 238cc or hybrid 530s with I think around an 80% nozzle, I could be wrong on that though, Im no injector expert

there are 200cc hybrids, 250cc, 275cc, 300cc, etc. etc., there is all different sizes and nozzle combos for injectors it all depends on what your looking for

lets do this the right way first.

Get an exhaust, gauges, build your own intake.

Next, call up someone who does custom tuning (im using totaldieselperformance, tony wildman) and get a custom tuned chip

If you are still wanting more after that, you may need a built tranny with some bigger injectors and turbo.
