I'd throw a set of 50s or 60s in, rather than lean on the smaller ones. When you start running injectors at their max, the spray pattern gets affected. It's nice having a little more room to grow as well.

I wouldn't attempt it without running direct scan which should be your next mod.

If the engine has head and cam work I would go larger like the 60's/65's.

38's should be good for high 11's, mid 11's with a good 60ft.

Depending upon all the mods. and how you will be racing, chip and octane etc.

Monitoring what is happening with direct scan is very important now with a new motor and all.

Maybe.......
It's going to depend alot on your tuning, and combo..

What people continually ignore in injector sizing is Accleration Enrichment, ie the acclerator pump. If you're only concern is WOT, for 11 secs at a time, then for a while you probably can get by with them. There have been a number of guys that have gone fast on small injectors, and there's been a rather large percentage of them, that have Headgasket collections. IMO, it's worth being on the safe side, and the 60s seem to be a good choice.

Rob, The T44 and 38# inj's will be fine for your combo and goal. If you want more then Yes a larger Turbo and inj's will get you low 11's or teen's. Your shortblock and head build is ready for it when your wallet is.
