hybrids or single shot

I just wanted to get your input on which do you prefer, and why? I know that single shot is better than splits for power and mpg. I know that singles use 6:1 and less oil than split shots, and hybrids use 5:1 and the least oil. I was curious as to wouldn't singles be better with 6:1 injection pressure than 5:1 in terms of efficiency and clean power? I have been told that even the split shots which are 7:1 can only provide that kind of injection pressure under the best of conditions, which is probably idle unless your using bigger oil. So, are hybrids just better overall, smokier at idle? Come alive and hold better power and efficiency under rpms? Just trying to get a hold on this and what to go with when its time for injectors. Im looking for power, not sacrificing mpg's too much. I have a pmr engine now, have a forged rod waiting to go in the truck, thinking big injectors detuned for pmr engine then wake them up when they go into the forged block.. thoughts... any experience on this? thanks very much

im going to get smaller hybrids that way i dont have to upgrade my hpop and trans, hopefully

somewhere around the 200cc range. and have them detuned until i have everything else in order.

if you are going to get bigger stage 2's then just get smaller hybrids...or bigger if you want.

and smoke output really has to do with the tuning and supporting mods being taken care of.

hybrids are still single shots

the body of the injector is from the international i530 or dt466 if i remember correctly.

hybrids use less high pressure oil than single shots. and split shots use a ton of high pressure oil.
and if you want a larger stage 2, just get smaller hybrids.
that way if you have a healthy stock hpop it will run them fine no problem.
