when did you put the 4L MPI engine in it?
if you're for real first thing is to get rid of the bigger injectors.

you could try ebay for stuff just look up EA and you will be amazed what you can find u want to lower the car try ebay king springs or lovells or motor wize single 2 1/2" should be enough alone good set of extractors pacers or lukey maybe a mild cam don't go to large or you will get ecu problems with to large cam maybe a bore, complete rebuild or a turbo and supercharger but becareful what you put in when u got efi or else you will need to get a aftermarker ecu

Cause if your running them with the stock ecu, that's the reason your leaving clouds of black smoke everywhere you go!
How big are these injectors, thier not 'XR6' ones are they?
But as for upgrades, what is it, auto or manual?

Not a bad thing, I just hope you didn't pay alot for them.
XR6 Injectors are exactly the same as stock.
XR6's just have a different fuel pressure regulator, which bumps up the fuel pressure so more fuel get's squirted.
XH Snorkel is a good place to start.

nah i didnt pay alot for tha car as a whole it only cost me a grand and everything that weve talked about was done wen i brought it...tha car was a steal i felt a little guilty but i wouldnt tell him that...so really to pump more fuel in i would need the fuel regulator then and just putting tha XR6 injectors on would do nothing

good place to start is if its automatic, to convert it to manual, makes a huge dif.
