I dont honestly know how much they cost.
Worth it really depends on your future plans for the truck. Sometimes small mods like this can add up to be wasted $$ in the futre.

If your gonna be keeping your injectors stock for awhile its worth it. Not sure where your getting yours from but mine was 165. I love my housing it made a very noticeable difference. Plus if you do put bigger injectors in any time soon you can put the stock housing back on and sell the other one.

I just put one on my '97 a few weeks ago...and man, what a difference! I still kept my 1.15 for whenever I upgrade the sticks. But, talk about get up and go from idle. I also did the pedestal mod and EBPV delete at the same time. Make sure that you get the o-ring's for the turbo to pedestal and pedestal to top of engine and the flange gasket for where the compressor outlet connects to the up-pipe flange. And YES, it is worth it!

I just did my truck this weekend and the combination of mods made a huge difference in torque. I went with a fully rebuilt turbo by Ron's Turbo Service off ebay, a 4 inch mbrp exhaust with 3 inch downpipe and resonator, 6637 intake and cleaned the fpr screen and shimmed the fpr. I hooked on to the load I usually pull and was able to gain speed going uphill not alot but much better than losing speed like before. I would say it is worth the money to do it but I didnt do just the housing so I cant tell you how much it specifficaly did.
