What kind of injectors??

Hello everyone. It's been a long while since I've been here. But I just need some advice. If you had to replace injectors would you go bigger or stay with a stock size? I still have to be able to tow a 26' boat. For those of you that don't know it's got the bullet proof egr with oil cooler and studded. Thanks for your opinion.

You could get 155/stock,175/stock, or 155/30 and still be able to tow with tuning.

When faced with that same decision, I sent with stock size injectors. I figured that with our heat in Arizona summertime, larger injectors would add too much heat load to the oil. I'm also towing 12k lbs... How heavy is your boat, Tyler? BTW, good to see you around.

I went with 155/stock when I had to replace mine. My injectors were rebuilt by Warren Diesel and only cost me around $650 with overnight shipping.

I have heard 155/stock and a stage 1 MTW turbo are a great combo for towing. No experince myself but I plan to add a stage 1 to my truck after she gets studded

EDIT: 155s are approx like 30cc over stock, so not a huge jump but a little performance booster for sure

155/30 would be a good injector for a slight bump in power for towing. I always recommend warrens for injectors have had good experiences with them

Hey evil, I wanna say its no more than 6, 500. It's only a tandem. Also looking at what would get me close to 500 hp at the crank. Sitting Around 430 ish right now.

Yeah, you should be fine with the 155's and adding a little larger turbo to improve your airflow. You *might* get to about 500, but doubtful. I'm also assuming you don't want to be towing at that power level. You'd need to bump up to 175's or even 190's, but then you'd really be adding some heat load if you towed at that power.

I was thinking 190s maybe. Obviously it would need to be retuned. Trying to find a happy medium where it van tow with xtreme race like I do now and not have a meltdown, but its still scary to drive.

I have Warren 155/30 injectors with a Barder stage 2 turbo. I tow my camper ( if i was to guess i am loaded at 8k lbs.) with a 80 HP tow tune from Eric at IDP, I see a max of 1250 egt's but mostly sit around 1050-1100 going down the road with the cruise set at 70. Very little smoke if any with the tow tune. I like it due to the fact I don't have to watch my egt's constantly.
