The injectors alone wont give you power but will give you the head room to up the boost and timing and if you have it available i would go e85 to bet full benefits from the 850's.

Injectors do NOT give more power. Stage 2 is no where near close to needing injectors.

Research THEN buy.

You HAVE to get a retune, you can't even drive the car without one. Injectors are one of those mods where the car probably won't even start if you don't have a tune for them, and even if it does start, you can do major damage by driving it untuned.

Injectors are just a support mod. They add zero power by themselves, they simply allow you to flow more fuel if needed. If you don't need more fuel, then they won't do anything.

You should be upset....last time I got injectors, they were sent overnight and cost me $0. The difference being I knew exactly what I wanted, why I was upgrading, along with who my tuner was and their blessing on injector make and sizing. You should be very upset that you purchased something without researching the issue to the ends of the earth regardless of payment amount. Research is what separates people like me with 2 times stock horsepower at 160,000 miles and people who have to buy new motors and/or sell their car within 2 years. This isn't me being an e-thug....this is about me sharing proper methods that will save you thousands.

I understand what you're saying Unabomber, I was making the purchase in accordance to what a friend (also my choice mechanic who I trust) recommended, I just didn't realize exactly what he meant (that I was getting this part to save it for when i get TMIC and fuel pump) then I'm graduating to a protune. I know what my path is now, I needed clarification, and once again I am happy with my purchase.

You obviously know a lot about these cars, I'm still learning and doing some of my first DIY stuff so I was asking for clarification not flaming

You've contributed a ton to this forum, calling everyone with a question that seems obvious to you an e-tard doesn't enrich the community

If you fart and say you didn't, you still farted. Regardless I appreciate your attention to my thread and your opinion.
