Need Insight on Injectors...

whats up guys, im new to this fourm. I have a 2003 F250 6.0 and i just got ARP Head studs, Black Diamond head gaskets, EGR cooler and EGR delete, 6.4 banjo bolts, and stock exhaust with striaght pipe. I wanted to upgrade my injectors maybe a step above stock or maybe a little more and not have to upgrade the fuel system, this is my daily driver so I dont need anything radical, i just wanted to upgrade them before any other of my stock injectors go out. Oh and if i upgrade the injectors will i be able to feel the difference in power?


Thanks in advance Cameron

Look into a set of 175cc Warren Diesel Injectors with stock nozzles. You can get them for a really good price

A fuel system is insurance for the $3,000+ set of injectors you're thinking about buying. Starving injectors of fuel will kill them in short order.

As far as what size injectors to go with..... what are your goals? Willing to upgrade the turbo?

Without changing the turbo, you need to stay with 155's or 175's max, expect them to be a bit smokey though. At least get a fuel pressure guage before you change the injectors. An airdogII would be the best bet though.

And I'd go with Casserly injectors. Although I haven't heard any bad things about Warren injectors.
