Newbie question

Wondering if stage 2 injectors would make a worthwhile purchase.
Throw in your two cents! Thanks in advance.
Dp tuner, MBRP 4inch turbo back, w/muffler and AFE intake.

which stage 2 injectors?

i would say yes.. but you should also add a better pump like an adrenalin from diesel site... and a better turbo...plus stage 2's will get you more than 400hp so your powder rods might not like you very much

good thing about going with stage 2's you can always have them de tuned to less HP..and when you get more money for bigger mods you can have them tuned up...

Raul, not sure which ones. Just getting some ideas together for spring. Which turbo mod? I know there are a lot of ones available, but not wanting to go real nuts, just the next level from where I am.
I just know that when I am towing my 9000lb trailer it feels a little dead sometimes. Of course my friend recommended a new 6.7 or a used 6.4! Not ready for that yet.

If you want to build your truck for more power, I would definitely start with the connecting rods. Your 03 has powdered rods like Raul said.

honestly your going to have to dump easily in the 4k+ range (assuming you already have a fully built transmission)

your better off trading the truck in and buying a 6.4L.... would be much cheaper in the end...
