Hello all, like it says up top.. my trucks been pretty ship shape and I haven't given this place a second thought, I've had other things on my mind
Anyway, I realize I'm on borrowed time with my injectors and my truck and this wonderful site is back on my mind.
So I know I need injectors (stock now at 205,000 VERY HARD USE) but I also need bigger gears (6" lift running 295/76 22.5" = 41"tires) on stock 4:10's.
At the bottom I'll list what I think might be needed to help. But its my everyday driver and I do tow now and then. I have a 26' Airstream and took it up in to upstate NY and with the low gears and big tires my egt's sat around 1,100 (900-1,500) all through the inclines. If I hammer down the egg's drop and then my EOT&ECT go up. I did the math on the gears and 5:13's seem correct but I've never run anything that tall in a street truck so I'm nervous.
I've always had 22.5" tires but ran the 255/75 low pro (maybe 34-35") and had good luck. Truck was pretty quick for basically a stock truck with some stuff bolted on and towed just fine. I used it at a truck pull and did good and used to run a lower 14 in the 1/4. Everything changed when I went up!
Yesterday at the dump with trailer I was 17,200 loaded. !3,000 empty (maybe 2,000+/- for trailer). Truck runs ok here in S.FL cause the roads are flat but if I was running in the MNT's Id have a problem.
My question is:
1) 5:13's do you think they are to big?
2) What size injectors to be able to run around and play hard (burnouts, allittle racing from the light) and still be able to tow average weight.
3)Can I keep my 03 turbo (stock) or do I need to play with that as well?
4)Do I need to reg. return the fuel and upgrade the whole system
04/F350 DWR. I do all the work myself in my front yard and am getting old to climb in and out of the engine bay so I'm sick of working on it. But I love me truck and wouldn't buy a new one.

Thanks for the help, I was gonna jump on an other post and hi-jack it but thought it be best to start a new thread.
