Not a must but i got almost 80K on my car so I figure i might as well make everything new and be on the safe side, now yea the injectors are not a must but while the car is tore apart why not replace the things you plane on replacing in the future its alot easier to get to. Now keep in mind with the stock turbo the cars going to be a beast till about 4500 or 5000 RPMs then its going to fall on its face. Of course you'll hit full spool at like 1200 or 1500 RPMS. That the reason I'm going 20g i should hit full boost around 3000 or 3500 and tuned the right way see power all the way to 6500 hopefully. But only time will tell.
If im wrong with any of this please correct me I dont want anyone getting the wrong information.

yea if your going with a 2.5 on a stock TD04, that thing would spool super fast, but fall very quickly. like 4K fast.

that crank pulley is a bitch to get off aint it? i would have done that while it was still mounted on in car. 4' breaker part FTW!
