So it looks like some new injectors are in my very near future, am getting the occasional hard start and puff of white smoke, truck has 165K.
My question (and I have searched extensively with no definitive answer) is do I go with 50/60 hp sticks, bearing in mind that I live in CA and need to pass smog testing every 2 years. My worry is that I will not pass due to excess smoke.
My future plans for the truck do include a better turbo (looking at Fleece Cheetah for the stock look), but that may be a while off as I need to get better trans first. I am not looking to make over 500hp, so bigger sticks are not needed (actually curious as to whether I should stay with stock sticks for the power i am looking for. Economy would be a bonus too. Truck is my DD.
TIA for any help/info.

500 hp is easily made with stock sticks. If 500 is all you want(once you get there you'll want more) I would stay stock although my experience with 50hp stix is they don't smoke too much. Someone in CA could help you more than me.
