    Default what injectors to run?

    trying to find which injectors to run. heard running larger than necessary can create idle issues, running rc1000's which tobz had a hard time tuning and heard they are a bit prehistoric. basic mods, 9 turbo 268 cams and the typical breather/flow mods. thanks in advance

    The injector scaling is all in the tuner. And i learned from others' mistakes, upgrade once, not 2-3 times. I went fic 1450cc and walbro 255. i am doing just fine (2.3/fp green/s2's/e85&91). If you dont plan on going bigger than an fp red on e85/fp black on 91, or similar to those turbos, id say fic 1450 or 1650

    I have some 1550 & 1850 FIC Bluemax injectors for sale. The RC's are old and outdated. They are like the turbo's back in the day. If you wanted big power you needed a GT42R to make 800+ but now technology has caught up and they make the turbo's physically smaller but pack a huge punch. Same with injectors. You can't go wrong with ID or FIC.

    Shoot me a PM if you want about prices.

    unless you plan on running a HTA3586 or 6266 or larger, you will be more than fine with 1450's or 1550's.

    PM me if you are interested in a tune

    Are you ever going to build the engine and go balls out with a bigger turbo? Or is your car going to stay with the same mods?

    at least 1000cc's. like i said, the scaling is all within the tuners abilities. and if you will EVER go bigger, even if its just a green or red, you will want a bit bigger. otherwise you will pay 300 for injectors now, then another 400 down the road.

    Make sure you get 8 injectors... you know... just in case you decide that 4 is not enough fuel.
