Default Injectors?? Will they make a difference?

Hey guys any help or info would be much appreciated. I've got a 98 GT so far I've put a trick flow plenum, 70 mm TB, flowmaster exhaust, off road h pipe will be on next week. Sct tuner with Bama tunes 91 race as of now. With a couple more street and performance on the shelf. My question is will 24 lb injectors make any noticeable difference in power or throttle response? What are your opinions on this? Thanks!

4.10 gears are made for racing and will ruin your MPG

Bigger injectors will only help you if your motor is starving for fuel and is going lean

False! Gears are the biggest bang for the buck holy cow I can really feel it mod you can do. The typical recommendation is 3.73 for manual 4.10 for auto. Also on a 98 stop throwing money at it until you do a PI swap. For the price of all your current mods, you could have more power with the updated heads.

Gears should be matched to your driving style/needs and you power band.
As an example, I run 3.55 in mine due to the low end tq. If I had anything more aggressive it would acutally hurt my ability to accelerate.

Clearly you have no clue on street cars and gearing. 4.10s are fine on the street, can even go 4.30 if u want.

Haven't really thrown all that much at it. Got the TB cheap off flebay, tuner is from my f350 so just had to pay for the tunes.. Plenum wasn't all that expensive either. H pipe was the most expensive upgrade so far. I just thought I would get outside perspective and advice on what I should. Thanks for your opinions they are helping.
