1.6 vs. 1.7 depends on if you want to spend the money.... either way you will be fine with piston-valve clearance with the B303... I have 1.7, and I know someone running the B with 1.7 and it works out well.

Stock injectors should still be fine as long as you are not running into problems..

Check Piston to Valve clearance Always. Regardless of what works on someone elses engine. Not all blocks have the same Deck hieght, some have the pistons out of the hole, some heads have different deck hieghts, The Ford Alpha cams, along with countless other OTS cams can have valve events all over the place( + or - 4°), all this has a direct effect on Piston to valve clearance. If your gonna go through all the trouble, at least check it.

Mass Air would be the route to go IMHO

You'll have better idle characteristics with MAF, escpecially with the B cam! You'll need a 9al computer as well if you do the switch! And with your setup the 19lb injectors will be at the upper percentages of their duty cycle! you can get 24's so cheap now its a no brainer, throw in a adjustable fuel pressure regulator too! And go with 1.6 Roller Rockers!

Good luck reaching that 250 RWHP goal, I think it might be tough!
Probably 230-240!
