Thumbs up Two questions on Injectors and Tranny Upgrade...

Hi All,

I have heard a lot of stuff on upgrading stock injectors to stage 1 or better.....I am looking for mpg.....What injectors can I run with my stock turbo gtp38?? Would I have to upgrade the turbo as well?

Second, eventually when I have $$$ I would like to strengthen up my tranny and rebuild it...Any advice on what parts to use or set-up?

Any help is appreciated....I am trying slowly to do stuff in steps, especially with the wife on my arse! ....Haha , hey I like my truck is that wrong....

Thanks All!!

Your best bet is to call Tim at P.I.S.

Ask him what he thinks you need to obtain your goals.

My guess is he will suggest something in the 160/30 range.
You can keep your stocker or upgrade it to a drop in like the Brute 66.

If you are going to run your stocker, at least get a WW2. As for the trans, a good torque convertor and valve body will more than likely hold the power the 160/30s will make. If you plan to go bigger in the future, I would just save my money and get a BTS when the time comes.

No need for a wheel.

What are "stage 1's"...

For a guy that sells injectors you should know how misleading that statement is...

And for the small cost, with huge improvements, the wheel is well worth it.

Thats fine...

I would be curious what a "stage 1" injector is...

Could be a 160/0.. Could be a 160/30, could be a 160/100, could be a 180/0, could be a 175/146... hummmmm

To answer the question Joe asked.. If the OP is not aware, Full Force injectors are 160cc/stock. Full Force injectors are 160cc/80%

We have always had great reliability and power from full force.

Why are we talking about "stage bla"...

Had some guy on facebook talking about "I've got stage 4 injectors"...

Come to find out he had a set of 238/100's... Standard hybrids...

CC and nozzle size.
