is a aftermarket turbo needed?

If I got 165 hp injectors put in my truck would I need to buy a new turbo at the same time? Would it be worthless to do the injectors and run the stock turbo? Will I break my stock turbo? Dont know what bigger injectors entail.

Thank you

What are 165 HP injectors?

Injectors are identified by size, for example 200/30

Well I'm not sure. Whatever size adds around that much HP. Will i need to do anything else to go along with it.

Who sold you 165hp injectors?

That means nothing... You need to know CC and Nozzle size to even get a proper tune to run them.

Without this basic info, no one can even give you a guess on what turbo is needed.

I have not bought injectors yet. As you can probably tell I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to them. I just know mine are getting old. Well instead of replacing stock ones I want more power. I have an edge evolution programmer right now but I know I will be replacing that if I do injectors with a custom tuned one. Any suggestions then on injectors that will give me 150 hp or more whatever those may be?

Thank you

Stop thinking about "150 more"...

What are your mods now? Intake Exhaust and an Edge... So 290-300RWHP...

150 more hp would put you around 450hp, which is not somewhere you can run the stock turbo for very long, nor the stock fuel system, nor the stock trans... You will more then likely need headstuds, and should do at least valve springs.

450hp injector is a 180/80 or 230/100 (230/100 is closer to 500-but it gives you a buffer).

Anyone selling you injectors talking about 150hp injectors is not someone you should be buying injectors from.

No one is selling me anything just trying to find more out about it so ill know what I need/expect going into it. Current mods are intake, 4 inch turbo back, edge, and a bd billet wheel on the turbo if that counts for anything. My trans is a manual so would it still need beefing?

Thanks

You will need a clutch for sure.

If your wanting about 450hp...

Then be prepared to drop about $4000 or so.

Alright thank you! Better start saving
Does an aftermarket clutch just help it not slip or something?

You will burn right thru the factory clutch at 350hp, or less.
