Nozzles and Injectors

So I know that the debate has come up several times over the years but is there any cold hard information out there that shows that it is better to go with a full injector body as opposed to just nozzles.

Also has anyone tried the jammer nozzles, I know that they are discontinued from edge but they are all over ebay still. Here is a link to some that are fairly cheap and have gotten some good feedback. Seems a little too good to be true but just wanted a second opinion on some of this.

I'm interested in seeing where this goes. Those are some of the same questions I have concerning injector mods. Seeing as nozzles can be far less expensive, and assuming each injector is inspected and properly pop tested if just using nozzles, it seems like a viable way to go. We'll wait for someone who has done this to respond I guess...

just buy injectors...nozzels are a pita, and you really need to take them and have them pop/flow tested...just buy injectors and be done with it...

But see there are also contradicting views on whether or not nozzles are a pita. Some say its easy and some view the hazzle of getting them tested as a down fall. Honestly if you can pay 190 for nozzles and have them tested for around 40 dollars give or take a few, you're talking about saving a good bit of money, and in this case about 400 dollars. I have honestly never done either so thats why I am seeking advice. The question still remains.

40 is just to test them not shim them. usually it's 10 an injector to test them. you want a quality injector it will take you a long way. a lot of injector companies modify more than the nozzles to get ideal setup.

Ok, I'm about to order a set of 100 horse complete injectors. What is your guys take on how my current set up will work, i.e. power, egt's, excessive smoke output, etc.

Stock HX35
Smarty tuning only
4 inch straight/BHAF
Raptor 150
Vulcan big line kit
Full built trans

From what I gather things should be ok, just watch my pyro a little closer while towing. Am I right?

You should be good. As for the injector question, it is kind of up in the air. When I have my pop pressures set, it usually runs me about $140, but on the plus side, I can have my pop pressures set to whatever I want them set at, and have a little control that way. The general down fall of most nozzles compared to injectors, is that most nozzles available aren't really quality pieces, and have bad design. I am running some garbage 8hole nozzles right now, and am less than impressed with them. If you can get yours hands on a quality 6 hole sac style type nozzle, you can probably build yourself a nice injector, or a EDM'd or Honed 7hole VCO.
