Stage 1's

I am figuring on doing my injectors, glowplugs, harnesses+gasket here in the next month or too. I am setting money aside and figuring I should get it out of the way. I'm running 6637, straight exhaust, 3 inch dp, and I've got boost+pyro gauges. No chip that I know of.

Should I just get stage 2's or stage 1's?

I'm well satisfied with my truck, in terms of power and mpgs. I am getting about 15.3+ mpg driving around 2k rpm.

I've heard that I can get some more mpgs with new injectors, if mine are old. I have no maintenance history on these injectors, and have some white smoke at startup which I anticipate is glowplugs. However, if I am going to be cracking the valve covers for the gp, why not knock it out all in one punch? It seems like a good plan to me, since I am most of the way there and then I know for certain my injectors are new.

So which type should I get and where is the cheapest? Can I order the GP/UVCH from these same dealers?

Lastly is there a way I can do a reverse bid kind of deal? Whereby, I post what I am looking for and the dealers IM me a quote?

Not usually, but rosewood will be the cheapest injectors, if you go stage 2 you will need bigger oil so send it off to terminator for the budget build too, and well good luck
