best stg 2 upgrade?

I rebuilt my injectors back in the spring and now that i have the d66 and a fuel system. I may consider upgrading to the stg 2 tips.
Would it be better to send my injector tips out for porting or should I just buy stg 2 tips?

The only reason for considering porting my tips is to be able to choose how much more flow I want.
New stg2 tips are 80% more than stock. If I port mine I can get 30% or 60%.

He can send his nozzles off to Extrude Hone, silly.

Thad, I should have 30% over nozzles in mid December if you don't want to go all the way to 80%. But IMO tuning will make 80% nozzles very friendly.

i didnt want him to be like the guy who "ported" his heads by renting a sandblaster and held the hose down the intake with the engine running lol.

Extrude hone" is a process where a mildly abrasive product, about the consistency of wet cement, is forced through passages to clean them up. Picture forcing the stuff through head passages that are normally difficlut to get to with a burr tool, it does a nice job of cleaning up casting flash, etc. Extrude honing injector nozzle tips does the same thing, cleans up microscopic manufactring flaws making a much cleaner passage for the high pressure fuel to move through.
