Default injector upgrade time again

hey guys i currently have a 01 f250 with swamps ad30 injectors, a converted gtp38 to 38r specs minus the ball bearings, 1.0 non wastegated housing KC s300 turbine. also has the FRx and oil rail crossover and a couple of other minor doodads done too it. any how im wanting too upgrade injectors on it and im thinking a 180/30% is what im leaning towards. im just not sure if i should go with the swamps 175/146, rosewood or FF 180/30s. i use the truck mostly as a daily and occasionally tows my jeep although i do plan on towing a gooseneck in the future loaded with 2 jeeps... what would be the power difference between the AD30s, 160/30s and 180/30s? ive read claims that the Ad30s are capable of 380hp??????? i would imagine the 180/30s would net more power and be more efficient and less smokey? what do yall think would be best for my setup???

thanks and sorry for the longpost!!!!

Why not keep the ad30% ??? Spend the money on good tunes, torque converter and vb. Just curious... Not telling you how to spend money.

I already have tunes and a johnwoods VB. Plan too upgrade trans and TC next year. Plus I believe my ad30s poppetts are getting worn as it is getting harder every winter too start and everything else checked out fine plus they are undersized from what I understand for my turbo setup.

Also yes the injectors are still under warranty via swamps, but they are almost 5 yrs old so even if I get them fixed they will be out of warranty soon and I'd rather upgrade since I'm pulling them.

What kind of cc are AD’s doing?

To me they’re all the same.

I think 130cc.

There is a thread thats still active about tests and results on smaller injectors.... I think it was kc turbo that made the thread.. I would just call kc and see what they recommend... Heck you might just buy a set of ff from him..

Why not get them fixed and sell them fresh from swamps... If you're willing and depending on what you would want I would be interested... I can pull my ad injectors from my running truck and send them to you or a shop as cores.
