Default 42lb injectors or 19s?

K the countdown is on, in 4 days ill be doing my SC. Just nailing down some of the final details of the install. Now im running a 12lb pulley with the fmu. I have a set of 42lb injectors with a matching c&l MAF should I go ahead and step up to the larger injectors and adjust the FMU to compensate or should i stick with the 19s?

I would definitely step up to the 42lbers, 19's is too small for forced induction.

do the injector swap and the s/c all at once and then have it tuned accordingly

I plan on getting it tuned eventually but for now im going to run the fmu. And i will get a blowthrough as well, the only reason im looking to do this for now is to take care of it all at once. Im also worried about pushing a ton of fuel pressure through my rails as i've had a problem with one of the injectors leaking. so with the 42s im just wondering if FOR NOW i can run them safley with the fmu(its adjustable to be ran with bigger injectors) and the c&l maf.

Yes, you can. I ran mine like that for a while, it's just not the best combo.
