Stock injectors are good for right up to 600whp on 93 octane. What's your setup consist of?

ID850 would be my go to. The provide great data, they are reliable, and easy to tune.

ZR1 injectors are cheap, plentiful and will suit your needs well.

With a good injector, they is basically no such thing as too big. You could put ID1700s in that and idle like stock and have zero issues.

They need tuning like any injector but you obviously have all of the calibration data available since they are a GM injector.

Personally I would just get some ID 850s, or 1050s and be done. No issues, work perfect, and more than enough head room for whatever you want to do.

Can't limp it there. Want to swap at tuner. No "base map", they just need to plug in the correct data, and done.

Unless it isn't tuned already.

Personally I'm not a fan of the LSA/LS9 injectors in NA applications, as sometimes they cause issues because of the different spray pattern/etc. A lot of people run them without issues, but some people do have some issues. Give them a try though, they are cheap.

I've used the ZR1 injectors in multiple cars and never had issues with the spray pattern. Anything else is a waste of money given your requirements.

I've run ZR1/LSA injectors (56#) in my cars also without issues. Cheap and work great.

Like I said, issues are rare, but I have seen them. For the cost try them and see. Can't beat them if they work.

thoughts on the FIC BOSCH 60 LB 650 injectors? got a hell of a deal on them right now with the st pattys day sale

Fuel injector connection NOT fuel injector clinic. ive heard mix reviews but not sure on exactly which one is better of the two but see alot of mix up between them
