Replacement Injectors

Repost from another Forum: looking for ideas

I need recomendations for replacement injectors that are durable and reliable. Performance injectors are ok, but need something that is gonna last towing, etc.

2004 6.0

Been using Allied Performance injectors for the last 2 replacements, however the warranty is expired.

I have every fix for the 6.0 already invested, Truck ran excellent for a year after last 4 Allied inj were replaced. No codes except inj faults showing.

Trying to figure this out from Afghanistan
Thx
JOE

If you are eating injectors you have an issue somewhere you need to figure out. Low fuel pressure is the #1 killer of injectors. Do you have a fuel pressure gauge? What is your fuel pressure. A weak FICM will also kill injectors. What is your FICM voltage? Are you runnning a 5w40 synthetic motor oil?

Alliant Remanufactured injectors are your best bet. That's what Ford puts in them.

Myself and anyone I have seen has yet to get any low voltage codes thrown by the FICM. I do not have a fuel pressure gauage, however I think I need to get one.

What the guys at Innovative Diesel seem to think that stacking the 6-gun and the bank econo-tuner caused the failure because the truck ran great for a year after the last couple injectors went out. I will ask the mechanic working on my stuff back home (im in Afghanistan) to double check the voltage. I have a guage pod for boost, egt, and transmission temps, any other good places to mount fuel pressure pod?

I like Innovatives 155cc injectors and SCT custom tune recomendation thus far.

You could always get a steering column pod it looks nice and clean

not sure if by your comment your implying that the FICM won't throw a voltage code ?

but you would see a p0611 FICM performance out of range

there are also some for low input voltage (aka battery input) but you would figure that out easier

OK, well good atleast I didnt miss anything that I know of. The mechanic working on my rig back in GA told me he is seeing 65-68 on the fuel pressure

I have heard through some performance shops that old weak batteires are hard on FICM's. My batteries are 8 years old, but they still crank the truck up.

Absolutely the FICM will throw that code. My minimal knowledge about electricity (aside from, if you lean against an electric fence, it won't feel well and if your TIG welder isn't setup right on your filler rod makes contact with the electrode, the filler rod will fly away from whatever hand you were holding it with), I disagree with the low voltage FICM's killing injectors. I do agree that fuel pressure will and that definitely needs to be checked out on your truck FORCEFED. I'm by no means an expert though. JMO.
