Stage II injectors

What would be better for pulling a load? I wanted the power of the stage II's, but if stage 1's would be better for pulling then I would rather be on the safe side.

In the future im planning on an intercooler, D66 turbo, HPOP, electric fuel system and 6pos chip to work with the injectors.

Thanks, Jared

For towing, I'd recommend stage 1's.... stage 2's will make more power, but you can't always use it due to the extra heat they create.

Id have to agree, stage 1's are the way to go. Stage twos will have significantly higher EGTs you won't want to mess with when towing. The extra power will cancel out with the headaches it eventually causes you.

X3...you cannot tow heavy with any more HP-TQ than a stage 1 will get you.
You don't need a elect fuel system for stage 1's or a HPOP. A IC is a must!

Going to 4.10 would be best with 35" and towing with a auto.

When your ready to mod let me know will get you setup.

I agree with the others, stage 1 is the way to go. Look at my mod list and I still have to watch my gauges when towing my 7000lb trailer. Temps will get hot and I can overboost it if i get into it too much on a hill.

Thanks for all of the replies. I think I will go with stage I's.

Will the intercooler be a must have?

P.S. - I will be re-gearing to 4.10's (the next thing on my list) before any other upgrades.
