Warren 155/30 and MTW stage 2

About to install some Warren 155/30 injectors and a MTW stage 2 on my truck just wondering if anyone else is running something close. I put down 418 on IDP extrem race tune with stock injectors and turbo. Just checking to see what kind of improvement I will see. Anyone got any numbers? Trying to catch my wife. Her 6.4 put down 609 so I got a ways to go. Haha.

My guess would be probably anywhere from 500-550. Depends on the dyno and your fuel system health (however there are several other factors that come into play too). Are you going to take it to the track and run it? You'll be needing a transmission next, so start saving.

That's why I am doing it. I want a new trans next. Haha. Well that and the cracked head.

Have you considered bumping up to a 175/30? If the injectors are being torn down already, its only a bit more machining. To me it's worth it as the 175/30s can be tuned to run like a 155/30 or run a hot tune and pull some good power out of the 175/30s. Just a thought.

I did consider 175/30s but I don't have regulated return and I pull with the truck so I will stay at 155/30 after talking with Jesse and Patrick at warren diesel and Josh at Darkhorse. Just really needed injectors and wanted to step up a little. I am getting the upgraded solenoids to prevent future cold start issues. Thanks for the I put though.

A regulated return is something everyone benefits from, even the guys with stock injectors. If you're running a custom tune, then chances are you're already starving the back 2 injectors for fuel... no matter what size injectors you have.

So, don't let the fact that you don't have a RR stop you from going bigger on injectors (if you really want bigger ones) - because likely, you're already being hurt by not having a RR now. And 175s have been known to tow well, especially if you're keeping the nozzle at 30.

I recommend the Driven Diesel kit. It's the best on the market right now. Nate, windrunner, is building/designing a new kit that will be much more affordable and more wrench friendly though. Either way, I think we all should have a RR.

Meant to say... I think it's awesome you have a wife that drives a modded 6.4!

Thanks for the info. Yeah, my wife made 609 at Darkhorse dyno event and I only made 418 but I only had an exhaust, tuner, and reliability upgrades. I told her I was going to catch her. Most wife's would say "no more upgrades or spending". Not mine. She says "good luck catching up". I agree with the RR but I have to replace both heads, turbo, and injectors so I must wait for now. I will get one soon. I saw your video on you tube. What did you have done when you made 503 at Dyno Proven?

Just a sump, intake, exhaust, tune, FICM tune, and MTW MadMax turbo.

Now granted: my truck has a ZF6 transmission (which nets me more HP due to less drive train loss) as well as an extremely short drive shaft - which also helps with drive train loss. Not sure exactly how much all of that helps... but the truck was definitely fast.

I put down 400/800 on 37s (steals power) on 155/30s and MTW S1, with a 40hp heavy tow tune. I have some other mods like IC and intake manifold. I'm sure if I loaded a race tune and dropped to smaller tires I could have broke 500 fairly easy, I just wanted to test her the way I drive her. I tow more then half my trucks miles so I just always leave the mild heavy tow loaded.
