Injectors without a performance tune?
My warranty is months from expiration. Maintaining my warranty has been the reason I have left my truck mostly stock for the last 5 years (the motor i mean). This paid off as I have had two injectors replaced under warranty, so that worked out good. Anyway, I want to do a couple things for now to promote longevity of my engine, and later when i have a little more time and money dump a lot of mods. So my basic plan for now is to just do an EGR delete, and later i will do studs, injectors, turbo. For now I am going to order the Gogo stage 1 intake/delete and install. My question is while im that deep,(turbo off, injectors in sight) would there be any benefit to adding 155 injectors and a powermax. Here is the kicker.... I tow heavy, my truck is pulling 17k-19k 95% of the time it is driven. So i have a very moderate 50HP tow tune and I drive it smartly. I will not be increasing the tune ever, until I am studded. With that being said, would there be any benefit of 155s? im thinking that with a very low power tune, im not even maxing out what the stock injectors could provide right? so no point in adding bigger ones. My main goal is to keep the cylinder head compression close to stock, so i dont cause myself head gasket issues. Same with the powermax, Yes i could benefit from cooler temps, but am i even maxing out my stock turbo with a low power tune? and would the powermax lead to higher cylinder pressure?
Thanks for any advice, remember round one = just want to do longevity modes so EGR delete for sure, considering the turbo/injectors
round two = (within a year or so) studs, injectors, turbo (aimed to tow).
