7.3 injector install

i know many have upgraded the injectors on their rig i was wondering how long it took them and how difficult it was to change out the sticks i was a mechanic for the last five years and decided to switch to something a little less distructive to my trucks interior. so i can do it i just never have and was wondering what i was getting myself into before i jump..... thanks in advance

I installed my Stage II's and was really nerious about doing it but it wasn't bad took me and a buddy about 2 1/2 to 3 hours start to finish worst part to me was getting all the stuff(intake, boost tubes, etc...) out of the way so you can get the valve covers off and the rear valve cover bolts are a PITA b/c they are so close to the firewall

Why should I choose stage II injectors or any aftermarket performance upgrade for injectors? I have all banks motor bolt ons . I need injectors badly. wondering which to buy. I will be installing them myself. This forum really helps!!!! It gave me the little push I needed to do many of the repairs on my truck... rather than spend the thousands of dollars to have mech do it. any good injectors for dependability/ perf?

i hear a lot of good things about rosewood. diy-injectors.com. there are a few good sources. from teh sound of it i would stay away from pensacola.

if you have a banks tuner you may want to swap it out fro cutoms tunes after this to accoutn fro your new injectors.
