Default Should I get the size injector I need now or may need in the future?

Shortly, I will have around 430-450 rwhp. After talking to a few people looks like I should get the svo 30s or the delphi 37s. I have a 2000, so I now have 26 lb injectors.

In the distant future I may (who knows) go with more cubic inches, where it looks like 42s will handle the job. I spoke to the tuner that I may use and he said the 42s can be scaled back so they will work just as well as using the 37s.

One last thing. He says I really should get the SVOs over the delphis. Does the brand really matter for tuning purposes? It's just that I can get the Delphis at a much better price.

Any feed back would be appreciated.

Thanks guys, anyone know if the SVOs versus the delphi would make any difference in tuning the car?
