Sell the Power Puck and get a TST, Smarty, or Edge Comp or Drag Comp box. That would be the easiest and give you the most enjoyment. Also you probably need to upgrade your injectors to even get the full benefit out of the Puck. You could go full injectors or just nozzles.

Yeah, scrap the puck, and get a drag comp and some injectors or nozzles. Get some gauges as well if you don't already have them. With a plain old comp, you can get your temps too high if you aren't careful, add more fuel, like injectors or nozzles, and you'll get really high really quick.

What they said. Injectors are a must to get the full potential out of a box. Nozzles are great if you don't have much money.

Injectors are the whole physical thing, you take one out put a new one in, no more work other than that.

Nozzles are just the tips of the injectors. You take your injectors out and unscrew the tips, then screw your new nozzles back on in place of the originals. The just simply put the injector back in and go on to the next one.

on edit: Well it looks like bouncer beat me to it.
In short, a nozzle is just a tip. Many nozzles now are engineered and really a good product, not just honed out stock nozzles(not that there is anything wrong with that). But like many complete injectors they have enhanced spray angles, more holes and varying sizes. Nozzles are a great way to go if you're on a budget.

I would think a shop would charge between $150-$300 depending on where you take it to have the work done. If you have basic metric hand tools, basic mechanical knowledge, and a little patience you could do it yourself in less than 2 hours.

It has been a while since I have done 24v injectors, but I think you will need a 8mm, 10mm & 13mm sockets, 4" & 8" extensions, a ratchet, and a couple wrenches to take the tips off and to loosen the injector lines.

Bascially take the air horn, grid heater, and APPS off and lay it out of the way. Loosen the injector lines and unscrew them out of the head. Take a small screw driver and pull the connector tubes back so they clear the injectors. Take the valve cover off and lay it off to the side. Take the injector hold downs off and set them aside. Then take one of the small bolts you have taken out, "it escapes me right now which one and where it comes from but you can figure it out" and screw it into the top of the injector and just pop them out. Change the nozzles and then re-install in opposite order. Just make sure you have the injector turned the proper way so the connector tube lines up with it and that the copper washer is still on the bottom of the injector.

After you get everythingback together leave one injector line loose. Bump the starter and let the lift pump run. Do this two or three times. Then crank until it starts and runs, when this happens hurry around to the motor and tighten the line so everything does not get covered in fuel. A buddy here helps a lot.

It sounds a lot harder than it really is.

also, a 3/4(19mm) crows foot for the 6 injector line. you maybe able to get it with out a crows foot. there is two bolt on the hold down remove the front one all the way and just loosen the one under the rocker arm, the hold down is slotted. it is real easy.
