6 hole vs 8 hole injectors

Hey all, I have a wild and crazy question regarding injectors. I'm getting ready to drop some serious coin upgrading my '05 CC FX4 with turbo, injectors, stud..etc.. Anyways, my question was there is a company in PA that specializes in building up larger injectors, 155, 175 and 190cc utilizing the original 6 hole design but with larger orifices ie, 190cc 75%. Then there's Elite Diesel who has for instance an 8 hole 185 cc injector at 70%.

My question is, will the 8 hole atomize the fuel better than the 6 hole or is that merely just gonna boil down to personal preference. The cost difference between the two are substantial, but I curious as to the quality of the 6 vs 8 hole, all money talk aside.

Any input out there?

6 hole >8 hole

rumor has it the 8 hole nozzles dont spray in the bowl of the piston... wasting more fuel

Not worth the money

Good to hear. I was curious. I'm still up in the air over the setup I want but I have been teetering with the idea of the Powermax-SR coupled with either Elites 185cc or Warren Diesel 175cc 70% injectors among other things. I want streetable power, reliability yet still be able to tow if necessary when I move again. Thanks for your input. It's always nice getting others' opinions.

Warren Diesel is the company with the 6 hole injectors. I've read some good stuff about their products and customer service over the PSN forums.

I'm no expert but after helping buds pull heads off a few stock motors and looking at the burn pattern across the entire piston head I would say even stock injectors don't just spray into the bowl of the piston.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

I would recommend Warren as well. I had Elite's injectors in the past, and they are expensive. Mine took a dump, and customer service was so-so. I have only heard good things about Jesse Warren, though I have never used his injectors, but I plan to be contacting him when I decide to get crazy again and want more power. :

I have his injectors also and they have worked fine. 175's and a pmax is a fun and usable setup if tuned right.
