Recommendations for smokeless Power
Looking for recommendations for smokeless power. Truck is a 2005 Excursion with a 2004 sticker on engine, has ICP in pass valvecover etc. Tearing it apart for Head Gaskets now. Looking to Tow with it and make some power with out smoke. I have a little stiction issues now with stock injectors, when I use rev-x, it goes away for about 4000 miles just in time for new oil change , running the 15-40W Kendal Super D-XA synthetic blend. I have full set of guages( egt, boost, trans temp, fuel pressure, HPOP, and Scan Guage 2) and HPOP isn't weak with the stock injectors. I haven't tried the shut icp, air pressure test yet.
I was looking at getting soem warren 155/stock or 175 /stock injectors...maybe /30's. Again i don't want to be blowing smoke. I am used to diesels, I run a built tdi and have several cummins, ve, p pump, vp44, and soem detriots.. I don't want a smokey pig as the Family cruiser lol.
I have a build thread going over inthe 6.0L excursion section, I just started the tear down etc. How much power can I get with out smokeing bad, I don't mind a little haze but no big time smoke. I remember reading about a Jefferson State Diesel 6.0L that was running 500 plus hp smoke free, it was in either Diesel Power or Diesel World Magazine etc... I'd like a 400 plus hp with no smoke and great tow capability.
