Injector Choices

Wanting to upgrade my injectors a little over stock, not much max 30%, wondering if anybody knows some good deals/ companies out there. I've got a '04 Chevy 6.6L LB7.

I don't have the answers but I've heard stock injectors are good to 600 HP. What are your goals with your truck? What have you done to it now? Just things I see asked by the others when this is asked.

Good luck and a bump for ya!

Ya, I have came to reality terms, I don't think i'm gonna build tranny anytime soon, so I'll probably just get stocks, i think much over that would limp tranny with EFI, that correct ? and all it is is farm truck pulls goose neck, but right now i'm getting 16-17.5 MPG. 1,5,7 injectors have high returns, that's what dealer told me anyway, they hooked up GM tool to it to test.

Just make sure its from a reputable dealer. Cheaping out on injectors is usually a bad idea in the long run.
