DIY injectors nozzles for 7.3?

I’ve done a lot of reading into DIY injector modifications and I am pretty set on that route as I have access to a professional machine shop and machinist who can do the work for me. Im familiar with the modifications needed to change the injector itself to a larger cc however I am looking to see if nozzles could be modified as well. I am aiming to replicate full force 180cc/80% stage 2s. I know Nozzles can be bought standalone but I figured I could save myself $400 and have some more DIY satisfaction. I’m sure it’s not too difficult, I have just never had a larger nozzle to compare to a stock one to see what needs to be done. If anyone could help me out with some measurements and/or pictures it would be greatly appreciated!

Do you have a way of checking flow rate? If not, then it will be hard work wasted.

I have read about dozens of people who have machined their own intensifier pistons without checking the flow and have had no issues. I’m not afraid of that by any means and worst case I just buy some nozzles. The parts are mechanically identical. If the injector isn’t worn out, it will flow the same as the next.

"Mechanically identical"

Man you should come work with me for a day. That will have a whole new meaning.

It's your truck so you can do what you want how you want. I'd like to see the results. The DIY injector rebuilds took a dive after a bunch of people screwed them up and went after the parts manufacturer etc.

Forgive me, nozzles is the part I am still pretty unfamiliar with, what does that get you? Basically my question is how much meat do I need to remove to make 80% injectors
