Stage 1 Injectors

If I do need to replace my stock injectors should I go to stage 1's? I've been reading better mpg and more power but what upgrades would need to come with besides a tuner? I have DIY intake, 4in MBRP exhaust. Also, will it eat up my tranny? And how does it do with towing? I want my truck to last a long time, dont want to beat it to death. I dont want to go to stage 2, 3, or hybrids.

You can go with stage 1's but you will need a good chip with custom tunes for the single shot injectors. I am not sure what you have for mods now, but you will want an egt guage at minimum.

Stage 1's will be good for towing and you can see a gain in mileage depending on driving style.

I have 250/100 injectors and I believe I am seeing gains. I do not have enough time for calculations plus playing with the new mods, but I believe I am getting a good 2 mpg more on the highway. Not too sure about city mileage yet.

If you need new injectors and have the additional cash for stage 1's, chip and guage(s), then I would go for it. You will gain a bunch of power and should gain a little bit on mileage. Its a win-win situation if you ask me.

If your stock injectors are screwed, in my opinion your an idiot for not upgrading to stage 1's. there's no downsides.

Except putting more stress on your tranny.

negligable... stock tuning wont give you anything more than stock power. When your ready for more fuel, as long as you drive the truck sanely there wont be any issues. If you get crazy w/ the truck , I suggest a clutch for 6spd and tc/vb for autos.
