injector upgrade time possible AC's?

So got some money save for motor upgrades and i was talking to my local injector shop and i got my mind on code AC injectors stocks with 160cc and seeing if anyone is familiar with this swap and what the increase is like, also like to know your opinions on this swap. I liked the idea of stock injectors from factory then played with injectors figure theyll last longer and less chances of something going wrong. Im looking for a increase in hp to help with towing also and just power in general, i wanna fine that medium between having to mod the engine cuz of hp increase and stock and if someone could help me would be great, like my engine to still last a long time so nothing to big and willing to do studs and springs for the heck of it in the future for engines sake and health lol. Also will bigger intercooler lower egts? and with injector change do i need to worry about doing something to my idm box? thanks apperciate any help you guys have to offer.

Ugh... almost don't want to respond...

AC's will get you about 350-370 HP with the right supporting mods.

^ this i already know thanks tho but with that hp range figure i wont need studs and valve springs correct? I have hpop already only thing i havnt changed would be turbo and fuel system. But with these injectors im wondering if this is a smart choice like i said i want more tow and hp but no crazzy egts even tho egts are expected and will a intercooler help egts?

Please try and type out words and seperare thoughts into different paragraphs...

People would be more willing to respond if it were not so difficult to read.

No, you do not need studs for a set of 160/0 injectors.

Yes a larger intercooler would lower egt's some but its not something in would look at with a set of 160/0 injectors.

Yes to see those HP numbers you will need to upgrade the turbo.

Assuming your fuel system is functioning correctly you will not need to change it for 160/0 injectors.

One would assume you have gauges?

One would also assume you know that a set of 160/0 injectors plus your 40" tires means your tranny will not last but a week or so...

Sorry about that, sometimes a pain trying to type all your thoughts out on a phone while doing other stuff.

I do have guages

Fuel system is working properly

Would these injectors be a wise choice for a daily highway driving truck?

To your comment on the trans i drive like a grandpa 90% of the time take very well care of my motor and truck too. Is there improvements i can make to my trans, besides rebuilding?

I usually wait to rebuild till its goin out, helps space out spending margins

you might see increased mileage with single shots, so it would be perfect for a highway truck.

if you have stock gearing plus more power, it might kill your trans.
lots of heat and then more power and heat isnt a good combo.

if you are running the stock trans cooler i would seriously consider getting either a 6.0 cooler or tru cool max from dieselsite.

Bigger transcooler if you start getting warm. A BTS valvebody will help you prolong the transmission's life.

yes ac's are single shots. so updated tunes are a must. gotta send your chip in for a reburn.

im not sure what you can do to the tranny with big tires other than lower gearing. i dont know if a valve body will help.
