I'd say you could get by with 125s maybe 150s and still get good mpgs...but it all depends on how much love you give the skinny pedel...If you go that big then you will want to get a turbo...w/o a turbo i'd say some 75 horse ones would not be too smokey...

never heard of 300hp nozzs, and 200-240 is gonna be all you want on the street and your mpgs are gonna suck, you deffinitly gonna have to get a heafty LP for that too...if you think you'll get better then 16mpgs w/ that high of a stick I've got some ocean front property in 'Zona I'll sell ya too...

I'm throwing some 200's in mine, and I bet I can still pull decent numbers with them. Its all in how you drive. I can still pull 21.5 with the 110's.

I'm running dynomite diesel 110hp injectors, and i've seen 23.x mpg cruisin around 50-55mph. I can also get 14 mpg with them...all depends on how much throttle i decide to use.
