Any interest in a DIY Nozzle upgrade for 6.0?

I've had a few calls over the past couple of months and I'm looking for some input to see if there's any real interest in this.
I can get nozzles rated to flow about 100% more fuel than the stock nozzle, same nozzle H-Max uses for their 50hp $1200 injectors. Looking at the other injector shops and costs online like Swamp's, Spartan, Elite and H-Max, seems it's common for 50hp injectors to run anywhere from $1200 to $1500.
I would target a DIY 6.0 Nozzle Kit to be around $650 - $700, and get 50 to 70 hp (I've had differing reports on actual power.) Kit would contain set of 8 NEW larger nozzles and 8 external o-ring kits.
No special tools are needed, and these are pretty straight forward to swap.

Any input from you 6.0 guys, or is the cost still just too much $$$? That's the only reason I haven't come up with this Kit yet, 6.0 nozzles cost double what 7.3 do and I have yet to find anyone willing to do it.

Thanks.

Would you need the stock injectors sent to you after the new ones are installed?

Thinking the samething. But if it was 65-70 H.P for 700.00. In my mind it would be worth it.

Don't think its an actual injector. DIY kit. You take your stocker nozzles off and replace em with the ones in the kit, in a nut shell.

I have no idea on fuel system, I really don't know about 6.0's. I have swapped these nozzles before and had the inejctors apart and that's about all I know.

This would be a DIY Kit. You take your injectors out (like a 3 hour job?) swap to the new nozzles (less than 1 hour) then put them back in.
These nozzles are rated to flow about 100% over stock. I do not know what the stock nozzle size is, but these are Brand New made to factory specs but with larger holes. EDM'd new. They are flowed by the manufacturer to within 2% of each other. I've sold thousands of nozzles for the PSD from this same supplier with excellent results.

I've never done a Cummins nozzle swap, but I don't think it's as easy as those. You still have to take the injector apart, but it's not bad at all, way easier than a 7.3 injector. You just need a T-10 Torx screw driver, 4mm socket, 1 1/8" deep well, torque wrench, bench vise, and some rags. Takes me less than 1 hour to do the swap.

The problem with getting good reports back is I need people interested in the first place to actually do the swap. Those that have asked won't pay the $650 - $700 so I never went any further with a Kit.

I'm not really interested in doing the work for this, I have for some local guys, but it's just too easy and doesn't take that much time. It'd be a waste, IMO, for you to send them to me with all the shipping and down time when you can spend 1 hour yourself and be done.

If any of you guys are interested please email me and I'd be happy to take care of you to get a few Kits out there.
Thanks,
Jim
