While you are at it look into nozzles too. You can tune down 160cc stage 2s to be just as good as stockers. But it will make it more fun if you plan to run a turbo in thew future.
BTW I am running the DIY stage ones and had jim build em for me. They are out of my 96 and have 200k plus on them and they are amazing.
I was lookin at the DIY to save money. I know some good machine shops around here. I'll talk to them about price to machine the pistons before i pull the trigger on anything though.
Nozzles = more $$$ though. Which is something i don't have much of. And im already runnin a better turbo

They are 140, but they are also split shots. I've heard that the difference between stage one singles and splits is up to 50 horse. Obviously it might not be THAT much, but still there will be a difference. Some of that current 140 is going into the pilot shot.
Also lookin to get a bit more fuel mileage out of it.

But yeah its about $600 to have jim make a set of stage 1's out of good working injectors, if anything is wrong with your injectors then the cost will jump dramatically.
You can do it yourself a little cheaper but definitely not worth the time or effort or risk of messing up! Stage 1's will be a good increase over your 140cc split shots no matter how you look at it, but while your in their why not look into nozzles. I just got a set of nozzles for free so i know they are out there!
I was talkin to him about it but neither of us have the money to do that sort of thing right now. He cant afford the chip to run them now and i cant afford hybrids, plus i got these injectors for FREE.
The $600 to have him do it is why i thought about the DIY route. If i found some free nozzles id do it but other than that any more injector work is way down the road. I need a house first
