Powerstroke FNG

So, here we go.... I've been a member for several months, but haven't posted anything yet. My rig is a '05 Ex 6.0. I bought it last year & haven't been able to do anything to it yet. Its got 35's, 4" Magnaflow w/ no cat, & a nicely leveled 4" lift. Pretty sure it has not been chipped. It does have the injector issue. I've recently had it confirmed that 2 on each side are shot. This is what leads me to my post today.... Ive seen & heard of a lot of conversations about "stage 2" injectors. I'm looking for some feedback on experiences & thoughts about a good upgrade. I would like to get the biggest/best w/out having to worry about upgrading the turbo (yet). I also plan on installing a chip or programming it at the same time. I'm definitely not trying to melt rubber, just the same pursuit as the masses.... more power, quicker response, & increase fuel economy. I don't do too much towing. I'm sure they're lots of good threads on here for this topic. Hopefully, one of you experienced, long-time members can point me in the right direction!
