stock stick finally went bad time to update ?

Ok guys the stock injectors are finally done at 220,000 miles. I'm thinking of going with Warren injectors rebuild. Just need them really fast army is moving me to alaska in 6 weeks. Now the truck is not studded and has a mtw hybrid turbo will the truck hold 155 stock nozzles or am I looking to blow a head gasket and should just stick with stock ones.

IMO if you have 220,000 miles on your injectors and you are starting to have problems... then I would look at getting a new set from Ford and having those built by Warren Diesel. There is only so much you can do with a really old problematic set of injectors because we are not able to replace all the parts like in an actual remanned injector

Plus with it being an 03, the plungers were also prone to wear due to carbide vs DLC coating. Get the Motorcraft remans and have them built.

Thanks guys going to go with Warren still deciding on the 155/30's just wondering if the MTW hybrid with 4in exhaust will be able to handle the EGT while pulling 10,000lbs up to Alaska got some big mountains to go over. I know on stock injectors I can do it just fine. But I have always told myself if these went time to improve.

go with 155/stock. They are cheaper and will help control egts better through high efficiency and better atomizaion. The stock nozzles are plenty big enough to dump 155cc of fuel.

I will not venture into the hybrid turbo questions because people have had mixed luck with that version of a turbo. Some loved it and some hated it. It is hard to say what it will do with 155s

Here is my suggestion, get with me so a plan can be made for your time line, while you have truck torn down I can upgrade the turbo for you. I do offer a upgrade for the hybrid to the stage 2, and have gotten great feedback. The upgrade is free, if you are the original buyer, and if not just small cost. You would still have to pay shipping your turbo to me.

As far as injector go, I would contact Warren to see time line for your injectors versus get a set of new to send to him. I also agree not to get bigger nozzles on the 155, the price would be much lower and would work really well.

It is not the fact that they are "not replaceable". It is the price and availability of parts. So when you send off "your injectors" to get rebuilt. The injector builder will do his best to work with what you have. For the price you pay for an injector builders standard rebuild... you will not get back all new parts. You will get back your same injectors with any majorly damaged parts replaced. But they don't/cant replace every slightly worn part. This usually gets you a 6 month warranty and some people have had the injectors start to have problems again after a year or so.


With a Ford Reman (not alliant) you will get back an injector that has "mostly" new parts and it comes with a 2 year warranty. I have never met anyone that had issues with getting Ford Remans rebuilt by an injector builder.



Here is a general rule of thumb that I tell my customers:

If you have no problems then get a standard rebuild
If you have slight stiction then get new upgraded solenoids
If you have bad/dead injectors then get new remans
