river city diesel

Ok so i got river city diesel injectors, had them put in professionally! ever since my truck has ran like CRAP!!!!! first it was over fueling so they sent me new one. it has had this weird lope idle-ish thing happening. it even lopes on deceleration! i spent 3 hours at a very reputable shop today with the computer hooked up doing a power balance tests, ficm test, tested ipc and ipr, tested fuel pressure, everything is good except on the power balance test it freaks out on decaleration. the truck cuts out when warm at idle! Please correct me if i'm wrong but it sound like bad injectors to me!?!?!?!?!?!?!? BEWARE OF RIVER CITY DIESEL!!!!!!!!!! I will post a vid of how it runs after river city sees it!

this may be a little off subject but it somewhat ties it with this odd situation. so here is the situation, i work for cummins, we have an older school bus come in for missing when putting into gear and at random times, well we diagnose for a failed vp44, so we put a new one in and same thing occurs... try all sorts of things, we ran this engine with the entire oem harness unhooked and still suffered from same symptoms, we put a new engine harness on and same issue... at this point there is alot of heads in the game on this issue, and somehow i get brought into the mix, and we decide to pull the tranny back to make sure the torque converter isnt messing up and causing this issue and come up with nothing, we decide to have the tranny dynoed to be sure we have no issues in the tranny we arent seeing, so while the tranny is out to be dynoed i am at my wits with this bus and i have made a vow to fix this thing, so i convinced one of the suits in the office to let me put a set of factory injectors in it ( i knew the bus barn put a set of sticks in it that were 245 horse injectors, which is a common practice for vp44 isb busses to get some extra power..stock was 195 horse.) they bought these sticks from a local injection shop which said that the issue we was having the oversized injectors wouldnt cause... well i went against that and put stocks back in this bus today and fired it up and the issue is gone... now i dont know if they just bought a poor set of built injectors or what but something wasnt right and its obvious it was the injectors... at this point i am very leary on injectors being built by a non reputable builder... not saying river city diesel isnt a good dealer but it may be something to not be ruled out. i realize my situation isnt with a 6.0 but with a cummins 5.9 but in a sense its somewhat of the same issue.

Thanks,
Adam

EVERYBODY i talk to with river city injectors has the exact same story! i dont care if it costs me 5 grand i'm going to make sure river city diesel never sells another junk injector again! it is causing overfueling in my truck and that creates cylinder wash and ruins rings of i'm not mistaken.
