I believe that with stage 2s you will need turbo and oil upgrades. I could be wrong. Wait for someone else to chime in. Is it a stick or auto? Is it a late or early 99? Also ditch the edge as soon as possible it will ruin your trans.

it would help greatly if you fill out your sig.
the stock turbo is not going to be happy long with stage 2 sticks, and the more you get on it that trans is going to start hating you (if its an auto)

The real question is what do you want to do with your truck, and what do you have to spend?

Im not meaning to hijack but he might need to be aware also, but is it ok to throw bigger injectors and things at these trucks with high mileage?

ya sorry about not havin a sig yet. anyway its an auto. the trans was replaced at 200,000 miles so the new one is still pretty young. and i mainly just use it as a daily driver. i will haul average size trailers around but no goose necks or anything like that. and as far as money, obviusly i dont have tons of it so im trying to spend it wisley. thats why im asking. i dont wonna buy the stage 1 injectors then in a year or two wonna buy the stage 2 injectors.

I would go with stage 2s if your thinkin your gonna want to upgrade, is your truck an early or late 99? that will help determine if you need to upgrade the HPOP, and as for the trans if your towing it will be ok for a while but the stage 2s will be rough on it, with good tuning your EGTs should be good though

this is an addiction, if you get stage 1's, you will want 2's and a turbo, then you will want hybrids and a built transmission, along with a host of other "small" parts required that will add up to 2k quick! Do you have gauges? But really, your truck has 260k, and if you throw stage 2's at a stock turbo it won't last. I have seen this first hand with a buddies truck... and I believe Matt can vouch for that as well. So if you dont want to fork out for a turbo then go with the stage 1's

just my.02
