types of injectors, which one for me? 38r turbo

I keep reading about injectors bc im replacing my injector cups bc im getting fuel in my coolant. so while everything is out im going to throw a 38r in and looking to put in bigger injectors. i dont know anything about them. the difference between hybrids and A-codes/B-codes, what the two different numbers mean exactly (ex. 275cc/100).
it's a 2001 by the way. not sure if i need to worry about the powdered/forged rods or not. I have the dp f-5 right now. will i need to get a whole new chip and new tunes? if so who should i go with? A guy at a local shop told me 280cc will work for me but i thought that sounded to big just from a few things i read. At what point will i need a upgraded fuel system and hpop. and when do the head studs come into play with all of this? Also i mentioned upgraded the 4r100 with bts. The shop mentioned twisted diesel would be just as good. (out of VA beach area) anyone heard of them?
I would really appreciate help, thank you!

well you need to check your rods first and see what you're workin with. you prolly have pmr. injectors are either labled a code which is what came in a 7.3 or 444e. aa 94-97 90cc single shot, ab 97-e99 120cc split shot, ac only came in 444e 160cc single shot, ad l99-03 140cc split shot. b codes come out of a dt466 or dt530. hybrids are a combination of usin pieces of both. since you have pmr i would look into some stage 1, srp1, 38r. would give you near 400 horse. yes you will need new tunes, goin from splits to singles, i like beans tunes. the numbers in the injectors mean 250/100 first 250 means it flows 250cc of fuel (per 1000 injections) the second (100) refers that the nozzles flows 100 percent more fuel per time as a stock nozzle. bts is the best tranny money can buy, warranty is second to none. i guess if twisted is down the road you could use them as well.

Two things right off the bat:

1: What is your goal hp-wise?

2: Find out if you have PMR's (Powdered Metal Rods) or Forged Rods.

no stage ones are basically just an ac code injector, 160cc stock nozzle single shot. i suggested those because it will keep you at a hp level were i feel you will have the least amount of problems. again srp1 is an upgraded hpop made by stealth. as for fuel i always recommend a regulated return or riff raffs frx at minimum. i assume you have intake, exhaust, gauges and stuff

the plug is by the oil filter base, requires a piece of 5/16 square stock for removal. when you get it out if you see a bolt head you got pmr, if you see a stud with nut you have forged
