I'm just about to order injectors too.
At what hp would you go to 160lbs over 120's on C16 or Q16? Its a 400 sbc if that matters

No reason not to order 160's if you plan on expanding in the future I ordered 120's and less than 2 months later ordered 160's the initial cost isn't different enough to short change your self in my opinion.

i have 160's on my mod motor/98mm and am at 58% duty cycle with a 3500lb car going 167mph. im running a base pressure of 50psi and is 1:1 boost referenced so 75psi pressure at full boost. running q16, duty cyle went up 5-6 % with the fuel switch from c16, something to keep in mind. idles clean and no issues, i also run in batch fire fast xfi, will run cleaner with sequential setup.

You sure you aren't out of pump. I went 8.9 @ 153 @ 3850# @ 89-91% IDC on the Holley 120's on e85. That's about 1000 rwhp.
what base pressure?

90% IDC on 120lb injectors with a base of 43psi on e85 is only about 950 at the crank

160's would put you around 1250 at the crank with a base of 43psi

and that is all assuming you are actually very efficient with a BSFC of 0.6

You are the one that said .6 for e85 not me....

.6 is a ballpark gasoline bsfc..

I see e85 run from .8-85

With a .85 bsfc for typical e85 it is 1015hp


So those injectors at rated flow/pressure will be

~1400 HP gas

~1000 HP E85

I assuming bsfc around .6 based on efficient forced induction....and then the extra 30 % ish fuel you use on e85



e85 ends up a little less power than what you have there...
1015/960... close enough...
either way... Flywheel horsepower... not rear wheel horsepower...
