help: start fresh with new truck?

Ok looking for some advice. Just bought a CC SB auto. My main question is about rosewood injectors. By no means am I calling them out. I have them in my 94 and have been very happy/impressed. BUT, i want to run stage 2's with the least possible smoke. I have heard elsewhere that Jims injector are the dirtiest and most smokey injectors you can buy (for $500 and great service I didnt care at the time). The E40D lugs HARD between 3rd and 4th and has no bag so obviously shes gunna smoke baad at this point and thats what im hoping to avoid. As for air a D66 is being dropped in. Are Rosewoods prices worth it? I want this thing done right and If that means some extra coin for strong and efficient injectors that fine. If you read through this entire post thank you!

I can't help ya. I haven't swapped injectors yet. But all the feedback that I've read about Rosewood's work has been good.

As for what you have in mind. Well, I read through your mods, and a couple things come to mind. (from reading about other peoples builds)
Turbo- You said a D66 is on the way, so that's done.
Head Studs- You said you're stepping up to Stage 2's, so "personally" I'd change out the head studs. (if it were my truck)
HPOP- You said you've got a 17* HPOP, for Stage 2's, I'd upgrade to an Adrenaline HPOP.
Tuner- You said you've got a TS 6pos chip. Obviously you'd have to get this reflashed for Stage 2's, and whatever supporting mods you choose.

Hopefully other folks will toss in their two cents.

Good luck with the build.

Thanks for the input! Is there actually a difference between the 17* and the adrenaline? Also, as long as I dont get too drastic with boost I dont feel that studs are needed. Injector size doesnt have anything to do with needing them, but I dont know the guidelines either (how much the stock bolts can handle). One other thing: Will this truck smoke uncontrollably with my stage
1s and stock turbo? I want to put them in for the time being but im worried it wont be street friendly.

OK, cool. So I can save some cash and stick with rosewood. I never thought of it that way. I was just thinking about how well the tips were made. Still looking for some info on my stock turbo cleaning up the stage 1s and if it will be streetable....

it really comes down to the tuner if you tell them you want to hold off on the full amount of fuel till higher rpms when the turbo is spooled i am sure they can do that and make it streetable for ya
