Advise with Injectors & More

I need some advise/input on injectors. I'm thinking about freshening up my 2001 F350 7.3 (see sig) and doing the following: Stage 2 single shots, 1.15 Turbo Housing on the stock turbo, and a Regulated Return. I've got the older (pre F5) chip from DP Tuner - so will probably have to order a new one with new tunes from Jody.

I use my truck as a daily driver, and two my 13k 5th wheel 1 or 2 times a month. I want to make sure it is stable and solid, can control the EGTs, and is fun to drive. I know the tranny will need something as well...that will come shortly after (probably should be before...).

Thoughts on these mods? Should I look at something else? Note - I'm trying to do this on a budget. So I've been looking at Bean's Rebuilt injectors. Anywhere else I should be looking for the parts?

Thanks for the advice/help - I just can't seem to take the plunge for some reason. I have this bad feeling about having to do more mods to support these - I want to do this and be done.

You will be fine with Stage 2's. Keep the tuning mild. Call Bean's diesel and talk to Bean about the 1.15 housing. I personally feel that the 1.0 housing will be fine, just install the ported compressor housing.

Yes - I have forged rods...did a viz about a year ago.

Bean was the one who mentioned the 1.15 to go with the stage 2 singles. He also didn't think that there would be a need for studs - I'm trying to stay below 400hp and keep a reliable driver.

I would do the tranny first, but that's just me - I like to get all the supporting mods done before I am forced into the situation of a repair/rebuild.

The AIS is a great filter but might not work too well with stage II's. I had it on my setup with Stage I's (175/146 single shots) and it supplied enough air with the fender sleeve mod at the 350 hp level.

You will definitely need to update your tunes since the single shots will need single shot programming.

If you tow, you will like the 1.15 housing - I do.

you shouldnt need much more than that, unless you want too. Also like dirk said you wont need studs. and the 1.15 might be over kill if your trying to keep a budget.

Thanks for the responses so far! How do the single shots do with a single HP oil pump (its original)? Is there a need to go to big oil?

I want to do the tranny first, but if I do a BTS, it won't be until I drive back back home for the holidays that I head in that directions - just have to go easy on it until then.
