Stage 2 Injectors?

Looking to upgrade but was wondering if it would affect my towing capabilities. Any recommendations on where to go for these?

Full force or bean's for injectors. As for the ability to tow, that depends on your tuning.

Tuning.

Many people tow with larger hybrids, no issues.

Will injectors increase or decrease fuel economy? Differences in smoke output?

That depends on the size, nozzle %, tuning, oil available to actuate them, and your turbo. But generally smoke goes up from a stop, but stays decently clean under load/acceleration. As for mileage, it can go up, but it can also fall drastically depending on your choice.

Mileage wont really go up too much for you because of injectors it will be because of tuning. And the SDs have split shots, if you get some good single shots they will definitely increase mileage.

Stage 2's will require a bigger turbo, Built trans, custom tunes etc. Can you detune and get away with just the stage 2's..sure but then why spend the $$ as you cannot get HP without getting support mods.

I wasn't speaking about the injectors.
