obs injector and hpop opinions

Like the title says fellas...i need your input!

i wanna keep my econmy at or above where it is (i know i gotta keep my foot out of it)
I'm going with rosewood on the injectors and am considering the t500 pump.

let me know what u think...i really don't have a specific power level in mind, just more than i have now! Im undecided if i should get stage 1s, 1.5s, or 2s

i thought the same thing about the t500...i think ones and twos are the same price but would the twos get as good of mileage?

Yes. Possibly even better fuel mileage with the 2's.

The bigger nozzles can run more efficient because it takes less effort to make more power.. I'm running stock tuning, got 16.3 on the highway averaging 65ish with a headwind and a 7.3 in the bed.

I would also say its safe to bet that it can outrun a stock injector'ed and chipped OBS as it sits, while running cleaner and cooler.

At first it doesn't make sense and i didn't really believe anybody when they said that bigger nozzles will help. But last summer running split shot injectors on summer fuel i was doing good to hit 16, yet i've done that on winter fuel.

Word of caution though, when you get a chip your mileage will DROP. 1st tank i calculated with the new injectors, built trans, and old tunes was 11.3 highway/city.

Terminator pump and rosewoods are an excellent choice.

IMO Stage 2's might be a little doggy a stock turbo... Especially with 100% nozzles...


Awhile back a guy on here with the same setup if have in my sig dyno'd 372rwhp...

I keep my switch in street all the time unless I am towing and am getting 20-23mpg hand calculated. It might be slightly less now as I just went up to 37's...
