What type of injectors, intercooler, and turbo should i get?

What type of injectors, intercooler, and turbo should i get? My truck needs new injectors and a new turbo and i want to put an intercooler on it. which brand of each should i get? I got a price on stock rebuilt injectors at a local diesel shop for 140 a piece and theyre labor is 45 dollars an hour. i dont think thats a bad price but i dont know if i want stock or a little bigger. what do you all think?

You may not want bigger injectors now, but you will at some point. Then you'll be kicking yourself for not getting them when you had 'em out. The size depends on what you want out of your truck, and how much money you want to spend. I used Rosewood's DIY stage 1 kit and they work great for my truck. I do a good bit of towing and really don't need anything bigger. If you want to race you may want to go bigger, but you will need more upgrades.

For the intercooler and turbo, it depends on how much power you want. You can run a super duty intercooler and find the tubes from Banks or other manufacturers. You could also go with a full Banks kit if you have the extra money laying around. The Banks cooler is good for higher pressures than either SD cooler.

The H2 is the more popular turbo upgrade for higher HP engines. The D66 from Beans flows more than stock and is cheaper than the H2. If you stick with stock injectors, go with a 1.0 AR housing on the stock turbo. The stock turbo does pretty good with stage 1's and an intercooler. Larger injectors would need a larger turbo.
