Question Need some advice on Injectors

This is my second post about injectors. I received a lot of good feed back and decided to get my injectors rebuilt by Jim at Rosewood Diesel Shop in Ohio.

But my new delemma is this. Should I have them rebuilt back to stock specs or have them upgraded to Stage II injectors?

What exactly do I need to upgrade if I go with the Stage II injectors so it will run right? Everything on my truck is stock. Is there anything I will have to worry about breaking or replacing if I do go with the bigger injectors?

My overall goal is to get better fuel MPG and have a little extra power towing. I'm a very concervative driver and don't really put the pedal to the medal unless I have to.

What in your opinion is my best option to go with? I have no problem staying with stock injectors and upgrading other stuff if it gets me what I want.

Thanks for your input in advance!

well if you go with stage 2 160cc with 100% nozzles then you'll need turbo upgrades ie ww or ats ported housin to reduce flutter or a 38r or even bigger, you'll prolly need some sort of oil upgrade ie stealth drop in, adreneline, or terminator, if they are single shots then you'll need custom tuning, prolly want to do some transmission upgrades ie cooler, valve body. you'll need a set a gauges to keep an eye on everything, and if you dont have it already, exhaust never hurts

You need to invest in a tuner, gauges and intake/exhaust first. Get a custom tune and let them know what injectors you are using and your intentions and they will write a tune for your specific needs.
