the difference is that the stage 2s have an upgraded nozzle

I understand the nozzle is bigger, but if they both flow the same, how is one more powerful than the other?

yeah they arent bad at all only took me three hours for mine

Did a little looking around and found this on beans site


Bean's Diesel Performance custom Stage 2 injectors flow the same 160 cc's but utilize a custom enlarged nozzle. These injectors are more performance oriented than the stage 1 injectors. You can still haul with your truck but custom programming is required to keep the egt's and fuel down when towing. The larger nozzle will allow the fuel to inject sooner and with less pulse width or timing. This will give better HP and throttle response. Expect a good amount of smoke when the engine is lugged and the chip is in a high position. These injectors are capable of 400hp at the wheels (that is and increase of 190hp over a stock truck with a chip) with the right supporting mods.
