Injectors and turbo mods

OK guys I know there are a few threads on here but Im looking to get some up to date information. In the near future (aka once I get enough money ) I am looking to get some higher performance injectors, im thinking the stage 2's. Since this is my daily driver I want to also do all of the supporting mods, such as turbo and HPOP and......? any thing else? What are some good brands for aftermarket injectors? And how about turbos/ turbo kits? Basically looking for a list of products that I need and companies to go through when ordering.

ya im in the same boat. luckily the 38r looks like the stock turbo and its made by garret. lol
im going to go the same route as well.
rosewood and full force make good injectors.

a cheap upgraded hpop is the t-500. its about 450.
and instead of doing a regulated return which is 600 bucks, you can get riffraffs Frx for under 200.

Ah, a Cali truck. I can't tell you what you should do since you not only smog, but you smog differently depending on where you live. With that, said... Stage 1 single shot injectors to start off with. You're going to need tunes to support that, or whatever else you do that isn't a filter and pipe. T500 HPOP is on my list, but it's not a "must have" with Stage 1. You can go 38r (with a WWgen2), WWgen2, or wait for new and improved whatnot. I can't, and wouldn't, tell you which brand you must get. I will say to buy from a reputable maker/tuner. It sucks for the good startup guys, but everyone began as a startup. Unless you have a buddy you're willing to test for, don't be a tester. Use tried and true.

What is your end goal? If it's big numbers, the answer will be much different than above. If it's DD, reliability, and better than as it came from Ford, then we're good.
