im not 100% sure on the 7.3 but on the 6.0 there is only so much you can go before you would want to weld the relive ports shut. it would have to be so small that you would probably just be better off calling up rosewood diesel, DIY injectors. they have just nozzles.

with the obs's its not so much the nozzle's as it is the internals. stage 1's actually retain the stock nozzles just has bigger internals for more flow rate

Umm do you literally mean using a drill bit on the nozzle?!? That is soooo wrong to do, like not even funny were I could joke about it. The only proper way to enlarge the holes in the nozzle are through Extrude hone(EH) or Electrically Discharge Machine (EDM).

What kind of tool is it? I don't even know of any reputable injection shops that do their own in house work on enlarging nozzles. Its usually sent out to be EH'ed or EDM'd and then sent back.

Plain and simple no.

And if you're going to do injectors... I'd get hybrids.
