First offi have a 01 f250 automatic with a 4 inch lift on 35. I have the diy intake with 5" mbrp exhaust. Right now i have an edge evo cs but im about to get rid of it amd get some beans tunes. I have a wicked wheel installed.

With that said im starting to think about injectors. I havent ever had upgraded injectors so it is all new to me. The truck is my daily driver so im not wanting the truck to be a race truck only. I want to still be able to drive comfortably and get good or decent mileage, but i want to be able to get on it and have it move still. I am looking into the 38r as well.

Im not looking to buy anything quite yet just trying to get my research in.

Looking for info on what all needs to be done before getting injectors, which ones would suit me best, pretty much anything i need to know about injectors and turbo upgrades.
Thanks in advance,
Dalton

Your looking for what Im wanting to do. From what everyone said go with Stage 1's. Better economy and more power. And wont wreck your tranny like stage 2. Also you wont need to upgrade your turbo, but it will perform better when you do

Thanks for some input! I figured i am going to put some money away for injectors and a new beans chip (since i am getting for stock truck) then looking into the whole turbo situation

Stage 1's on stock turbo = stock turbo maxed out. Your superduty will make a good 400-430whp on properly tuned stage ones... and I'll give you a hint at who produces those numbers...
You are already purchasing their chip.

I would still get a good VB at the MINIMUM and then a TC when you can afford it to ensure the tranny stays together.

BTS makes a great valve body thats pretty cheap.

Racerx makes great tc's. Or suncoast or a 6.0 tc.

400+ to the wheels on a 160? You sure about that? Got a graph?

OP, I'd do a 238/80 (hybrid) injector if I could go back and do it again. They can be tuned to run at stock or lower power if needed, while still having the capability to make bigger numbers down the road if you decide to do 450-500hp.

My two cents . . .

I agree with sniper, i would go with bigger injectors to start with. they arent that much more expensive and they leave room to grow. 238's are a nice spot i think. they can make 500hp with the right supporting mods, and they can still be de-tuned enough to make good mileage. I plan on getting a set of rosewood 238/100 in the spring. just my opinion.

I'm trying to find the thread.. but theres a 21 page thread out there of Beans, and all kinds of board members posting dynos. Beans will GUARANTEE 460ish whp out of stage II's on a super duty. It's pretty damn cool. Just hard to find.

Give me a few.


Edit: Here we go. 400whp with stage 1's and 460whp on stage II's. Stock-injectored super-duty's live tuned by Beans have touched 360whp and 750ft-lbs. Enjoy reading... I know I sure the hell did

quite a few guys have done 400hp to the wheel on 160/stock bud.
