injector upgrade question

I own a 1995 f-250 7.3 powerstroke and i was wanting to get bigger injectors and i saw 100hp injector nozzles, can i put these nozzles on my stock injectors and if so what would be the difference in getting the whole new injector. I hate to pay $2900 on injectors if i can get close to the same results with $800 nozzles

Check out full force diesel or rosewood. It all depends on what horsepower goal you have. They are not measured in "horsepower" nozzles. There are how many cc's the injectors flow, and how much more they flow over stock nozzles. Example: 160/100's flow 160 cc's of fuel and flow 100% more than stock nozzles.

Buying the whole injector you get new plunger and barrel assemblies (common wear items) , Beans has stage 2 single shot's for $1650.00 and stage 3 single shot's for $1850.00, and why spend $800.00 on your stock injectors then have to replace them when they wear out in a few thousand miles (depending on how many miles are on the stock injectors)

Rosewood has all the way to a stage 2 for $1235 (I think thats current) and thats a premium build with new plungers/barrels

Also make sure that id you're going to be throwing stage 2 or bigger injectors at it that your wallet is big enough. You will need a built trans if it's an auto, fuel system, hpop, turbo,intercooler, head studs, valvesprings etc. Gets expensive real quick.

For 100 hp I would just get the stage 1's. Most people are very happy with them and a good tune on the OBS.

I'd stay away from going the "buy nozzles and rebuild yourself" route.
Unless you know what you're doing and have a flowbench to test them, things can go rotten pretty quick. There's a reason injector builders don't offer DIY rebuild kits.

Seen a few "DIY Stage I" kits on ebay lately. Had to laugh because the cost for the kit was no cheaper than a budget rebuild from Rosewood.
