Default 30lb or 34lb?

I'm building a nice L33 5.3 vortec as follows:

243 heads, mild home porting, might skim them 20 thou to bump the cr up from 9.9:1
LS6 intake
heads port-matched to manifold
02-04 LS6 GM cam (0.55 lift) and springs
Ported stock FBW TB
Sheet metal 97-00 'vette exhaust manifold
free-flow mufflers (straight through)
Cold air intake
Mail order tune to start with....

I have LS1 injectors - 30Lbs hr, which can just cope with 400 hp at 4 bar, if this setup will make that much hp....


I could buy a set of 34lb/hr injectors off the 405 hp 'vette (same one that the cam came from) which might give me a bit of headroom, not that I expect to do anything more to this engine.

If I bought the bigger injectors I could always turn down the fuel pressure a bit if idle proves difficult?

Suggestions and guidance welcome!

idle will not prove difficult. get the larger ones. adjust the Injector flow rate, then tweak the other tables (which you may not even need to)
