Replacing injectors, how big is safe on stock?

In the past 2 weeks, I've replaced 3 injectors in the truck, and #4 is on its way out. I'm planning on going ahead and replacing all 8 now, just to get it done and over with. I've seen some aftermarket rebuilt injectors with a little larger CC rating than stock, but was curious what size would be safe to run on a stock truck with no tuner. I'm going to get one later on, but I want to do all of the preventative mods first (egr delete mainly).

These are the ones I'm looking at

Looking at the stage 1 from these guys
Elite Diesel Engineering Fuel Injectors for 6.0L Powerstroke

Which one would be safe from here, the 40's or the 70's
Pensacola Diesel Inc. - FORD POWERSTROKE :: HIGH PERFORMANCE INJECTORS 40,70 & 100HP 7.3L & 6.0L :: 6.0L 40 & 70HP INJECTOR(SET OF 8)

If there is another company that makes them better or for cheaper, I'd like to find that too

Thanks,
Jimmie


Edit: Truck is an 06 350 srw with the 6.0

if you are going to be doing injectors then i would also recommend to do head studs at the same time, either set would be fine for your truck but you wont take full advantage of them until you have a chip

I'd like to, but I have to see what budget allows at the moment. If I can I will though....

I have never seen good reviews about pensacola's injectors, do a search on here and you should come up with a few threads on the subject.

Just an FYI

i agree, i didnt see who the second set was from when i first posted...

I wouldnt waste the time to do the injectors unless you can do the head studs at the same time. no point in not installing them when you are half way there to do them

Well, I ordered some injectors today. Got a 150cc set from outlaw diesel, also got their EGR delete kit (full kit with up pipe). The budget just doesn't allow for the studs right now. If the headgaskets do decide to let go, I'll do it then, or if the budget builds up enough to allow it later on. Injectors were first priority, and the egr cooler is going to let go any time now, so it took priority number 2...

I was under the impression they don't rebuild the injectors meaning if they are bad they will still be bad just flow more cc's they rebuild your I jectors for cc displacement but not a full rebuild

The injectors I am getting are remanufactured and modified. i'm getting a whole new set, then sending mine in as cores. They are completely remaned...


My egr kit came in today. It all looks very good and very well made. Kudo's to whoever is running the tig welding machine, they are doing some beautiful work. I always think my tig welds look good till I see the work of a true pro.
