def go with stage 1's

you will need a custom tuned chip for the stage 1's.... and you will prob see better MPG after the tuning... dont forget your gauges, intake, and exhaust

Definitely do the stage 1s I just pulled out my stock injectors yesterday and sent them off to be rebuilt to stage 1s 90cc to 160cc is a huge difference and from what I hear its like driving a completely different truck. Def go with a TW chip as well stage 1s will act like stock without a chip and with a TW chip you will see the full potential.

Im doing it through Jim Rose at DIY injectors for 475 bucks, sending him the stock ones saves me a core charge and its cheaper than getting remanned ones, removal was pretty easy

Stage 1s flow 160cc and give gains up to 140hp a bigger turbo is not neccesary but if you want to see the full gain of the injectors you will want one. With a custom tuned chip and these injectors you should see a gain of 110hp

$475 to send in your injectors and have them built up (and basically remaned as well)? That's a friggen steal if so! Or is it $475/ea? heh If it's /ea then that's a rip off!
