Default Need Help!!

I just went to get dyno'd yesterday and found out that I am not getting enough air into my motor. The shop told me that I need a new MAF meter which is understandable since the one I have now peg's after 2 seconds of WOT. He recommended the SCT BA2800. They also told me that I need new 42# injectors. I have 36# right now. My question is do I really need an extra 5# of fuel? I know it wont be as good as the 42 but I dont have the money right now for both.

i'd start with the MAF first, no reason to upgrade if you don't really need it. 36 should work ok, but if your WOT alot(racing) i'd go 42

if it seems sluggish at all, your probably maxing out the injectors. hard to tell online, but start with the MAF, cuz thats the broken part.

do higher #'s of fuel injector's lower your gas mileage?
