    first, what other mods do you have? you don't necessarily upgrade injectors on a head only swap. your stockers would be enough. you are either 26 or 28 lb/hr stock.

    you will need to have the duty cycle checked out to determine whether or not you need injectors after the head install and tune. if your stockers flow 90% or higher in duty cycle its recommended that you go to larger injectors. 36lb/hr would suffice, but if you plan on doing major modding, go ahead and get 42lb/hr injectors and call it a day.

    I didn't have to change my stock injectors until I installed a Fast 90/90 setup. After that I went the Ford 42# but could have gotten by on 36# injectors. Since our fuel pressure is higher a 42# ford injectors equals out to be like a 50#er.

    Everybody I know likes the Ford 42#s. You can usually pick up a set for $200 around our area.

    agreed, with your setup, get 42's. I'm running 42 with my set-up, and no worries about the duty cycle. the Ford's PFM mentioned are commonly referred to as 'green tops' since the top of the injector is green.

    for the life of me, i can't remember what brand mine are. regardless, no issues since installed. i chose to upgrade injectors when i decided to install and U/D pulley and EWP. my H/C/I/E were done and i was around 93% duty cycle. so for me, it was clear i needed to setup.


    EDIT: i'm running Lucas 42lb/hr injectors
