Injector/ turbo questions, recommendations.
I've been reading like mad on here, and I have a few questions about aftermarket turbos and injectors. I am new to the 6.0 aftermarket world, but by no means new to the 6.0 world. As I mentioned in my intro, I have worked on 6.0 engines for quite sometime but that was at the dealer, and working on stock motors.
Anyway, in the next 2 weeks or so, im doing the arp head studs, new head gaskets, egr delete, oil cooler, zerex red coolant swap, hpop oil fittings, blue spring upgrade, upgraded turbo oil drain, upgraded dummy plugs, stand pipes, etc. I'm waiting for the coolant filter, new coolant resorvoir, and a few other parts to show up before I dive in.
I am looking for some recommendations on what brands of after market turbos you have had good luck with, and what injectors you have paired them with. I'm still a bit confused about the numbers that are listed with injectors and what they mean. All of the high performance motors I have done before were gas motors with injectors rated in lbs, I'm kinda confused with ratings like 175/55 for example.
The truck so far has a 4 inch turbo back mbrp exhaust with no cat and no muffler, and all metal boost pipes under the hood.
I've been looking at warren diesel injectors, and either a power max turbo, of a mtw one.
Sorry if my questions sound stupid but I'm trying to get as much info as I can before I do all the work. I plan on using an sct tuner, getting the ficm tuned, and the tranny fully built pretty much at the same time along with the full brake upgrade setup, and most likely a 4 or 6 inch pro comp stage 2 lift kit.
Btw my truck is an 05 f350 crew cab, long bed 4x4 6.0 diesel.
