Yet another injector question

I just bought 160/0 injectors from Powerstruck.
Sent my cores in and he said he'd start building them in the next week or so...

that said, I am second guessing myself,
should I call and ask to pay the upcharge to go to 180/100's ?
Or stick with the 160's

I don't plan to do any more modifications after the injectors...
Here's my truck...

Late 99 7.3, ZF6 manual F250 4x4
~280,000 miles......only a handful of mods...
WW2 wheel on the stock turbo
boost fooler
4" turbo back exhaust
bellowed up pipes
HP oil crossover
Riff Raff FRX
Air Raid cold air intake
CCV mod
PHP HYDRA
Just sent my HPOP to be rebuilt into a T500
Boost/EGT/Fuel Pressure gauges

Opinions and or harmless teasing would be appreciated...

I would get the 180/100s the 160s will be fine but later you will wish you had gone bigger.

Definately 180's, you can always turn em down with a tune, but can only push the 160's so far. Plus I'm sure you'll get the mod bug again in the future so prepare for it

I would stick with the 160/0...

But what do I know, I've only run about every size injector to 250/200's...

No reason to go bigger then 160's on a truck you want to DD and work with, even more so with almost 300k on it.

Says the guy who currently has 230/100's and tows heavy all over the country with it :

I have 175/80's and I'm pretty content most of the time.

160/0 is the injector that these truck should have come with stock and are great as a slightly better than stock injector, but if you want to really make a noticeable difference get a 160/80-180/100 range injector.

My buddy has 180/100's from Power-Struck and aside from turning down the smoke he is quite happy.

I called Powerstruck and they took time to talk to me and explain the differences,
160/30's sound like they're going to do what I want/need...

Thanks again for all the input/advice

Which is down from the 250/200's I was running...

230/100 was as small as I could go and still spool my current turbo without issue, otherwise I would have gone back to a 160/30...

My wifes Excursion has 160/0, and has been trouble free for over 130k now...

PIS offers new and re-manufactured injectors.

If the re-manufactured injectors are completely rebuilt and basically new what is the advantage of going new and spending roughly another $800?

Both have the same warranty....Both require a core replacement.

Is it piece of mind? To me if they have the same warranty it would be silly to buy brand new.

I'm just bugging you.

But since we're on the subject, did you have problems with all those sets of injectors eventually or did you just get bored and change your set up?
