a few question

Im thinking of putting injectors in my truck. just not sure if I want to do stock replacements or stage ones. being an 03 I have PMRs. Would I be safe to go with stage ones or should I stick with stockers? Right now with the stock sticks it does everything I want it to do. but, since stage ones are the same price figured Id ask. I mainly daily drive about 70mi a day. I do haul/tow with it on occasion. Any input is great! also, my fuel milage is about 13.5-14. I know that my 35s arent helping, but I think between exhaust, intake, and tuner not to mention the 6spd trans I should be doing a little better anybody have any input on where to start? I know speed is a big part of it. I run the highway 4 days a week about 70mi a day. I try to keep it at 60-65mph.

Stage Is would be perfect for what you are after. The one thing to keep in mind is that you will need some custom tunes to run them so figure that into your expenses.

I have Casserly Stage Is and DP tunes. Love it. Didn't notice much mileage change but I only drive my truck on the weekends these days.

It depends on how you drive. The lift doesn't help either. What size wheel/tire combination are you running? That can make a difference too. 14mpg in combined city/highway with a lift and bigger wheels and tires isn't all that bad.
