I think they are a great idea if your injectors are up to tip top condition and you know what your doing. also I believe there is no point in stage 2's or 3's unless your have all the other supporting mods, such as upgraded hpop, turbo, trans, intercooler and fuel system.

thats exactly why my buddy decided to order the larger nozzles. Because he didn't want to do all that work and know that he was going to want stage 2's soon so he just did it all the first time

Stage-1 are a great upgrade for the older trucks, they work well with the stock turbo, fuel sytem, etc.

Stage-2 require a larger turbo, larger fuel system, upgraded trans/clutch etc.
So if you DON'T have plans to go big with everything else, the Stage-1 will be plenty. They add about 140 hp to the wheels, and considering a stock truck pulls around 180 at the wheels, the Stage-1 are darn near doubling the power of a stock truck, with good tunes of course.

Also, I'd say 9 out of 10 sets of the older AA/AO I work on need all new Plunger & Barrels, and a lot of times the nozzles don't flow well, either, and need to be replaced. So the DIY Kits are attractive at first, just keep in mind once you have them apart, pay close attention to everything else or all your work will be for nothing. If the tolerances aren't addressed, or the bad parts are not replaced, you won't gain anything.
