Jim with DIY is great to deal with.

His kits are very much worth it

Add big injectors and your clutch will probably be TOAST.

If you are worried about that, than just do the stage ones

The stage 2's can dump more fuel with the larger nozzle holes. On Tony's "stock" setting I can even get 'er smokin' You just need to consider how high your power goals will be, and will your old nozzles with xx miles on them still be good, or replace them with new stock ones for a better quality rebuild job.

We need more info about your truck to really help you out.

Stage-1's are a great upgrade for the '94 - '97 trucks. It really wakes them up with a good custom chip.
Stage-2's are basically the same injector, but have new larger nozzles. The Stage-2 Kits start at $725, not $800...

Stage-1's are pretty much maxing out the capabilites of your stock fuel system, turbo, etc, and will stress out your trans/clutch if you run an extreme burn all the time.
Stage-2's are much harder on the same stuff.
If you plan to upgrade these things over time you can tune down the injectors for now, then reburn your chip later to take full advantage of the Stage-2's.

An OBS or 2, or 3...

If you want smoke you don't need inj. Have TW burn you a smoke tune. Getting inj. takes a commitment and $$ to mod all the other things that you need to install with them.
