A good Combo

Hey, Just shoppin around tryin to see what options i have to look at for when i decide to start moddin my diesel. I already have a couple of the basics and just missing the gauges..

But im lookin to put some more fuel to it. Ive been looking at whole injectors but im really likeing the DIY injector kits. Rosewoods i think? I have no problems tearing into my injectors and doing them myself and i have the tools to do it.

Im kinda in a tossup on which ones to get..

I like the price of the Stage 1's with the new pistons. Not really looking to run 12's in the quarter or pull 300 ft with my truck. Just some more get up and go. So what ones do you suggest? Also looking for a superduty HPOP but dont know the exact year to get or where to get one..

I already have a intercooler and all the plumbing, trans has a billet converter and a bully dog shift kit.

So im looking for anyones .02 cents here. Im open to suggestions.

Will i see a pretty good gain with the way that im thinking about going? The DIY website says you see a 140 horse gain over stock with stage 1's?

Truck has a DIY intake, Bully Dog shift kit, torque converter, and a good exhaust.

what he said...

youll need a good tune tohelp out, like a TW chip. that should get you quite a bit of go fast. jsut be sure your tunes match your setup.

if fact you might even be able to run stage 2's. others will have to verify if the 17* HPOP will support that though. and you might need a stronger fuel pump...?

If you run stage 2's, you'll run out of fuel

Yes. The stock OBS 15* pump will be fine with stage 1s but the 99+ 17* pump would help performance.

You won't run out of oil with single shots, but a 17* would help with top end

Seams like my stock Hpop cant even keep up to stock injectors. I get that chatter when im on the throttle and stop. Id defiantly get the Hpop and switch everything over at the same time..

isnt the chatter due to fuel supply? all the hpop does it supply oil pressure to the injectors.
