Swapping my '95 injectors with '97 model split-shots...

I have a '95 PSD with 169k on it. It recently started acting up, and we think its the injector o-rings.

Anyway, while we were in there (me and dad, mainly dad) I was figuring i could get a set of the injectors like that came in the '97-up trucks. I'm pretty sure they switched them to 120cc split-shots that year. (Correct me if i'm wrong about the split-shots.)

Anyway if i stumbled up on a motor that year that had those injectors, could i just swap them out and keep trucking, or is there anything i need to change, mod?


thanks for any help!

Splits fire differently. You would need a 97 pcm or custom programming for your engine to run correctly.

I was giving general info. I HIGHLY recommend you stick with your AA codes and do the DIY kit. Your 15* HPOP will thank you for it later. The pump will run AB's fine for the moment.. but if you have a weak IPR, you will know soon enough. Especially if you chip the truck.
Single shots will also give you better fuel mileage.

Not to mention the Cali Fuel system with the different fuel damper

It is really a waste of time and money to put Cali Injectors in.

Just get DIY160CC Single Shots and be done

stage 1 and stage 2 singles are both 160cc. The stage 2 have a larger nozzle and the stage 1 uses the stocker. The 140cc is the AD injector. If you are already running AB's, AD is a nice drop in (CHEAP) upgrade. You'll need a chip to see any gains.

I did the DIY 160CC injectors in January. Got them from Jim Rose. Really liking it. I just wasn't that hard to do. Also, the truck starts much better now having changed out the seals in the process. So far my mileage has kinda sucked, but I'm still having trouble keeping my foot out of it.

I'm sure they didnt put the split-shots in just the Cali Trucks. My dads friend has a 97 F-350 DRW that he gets my dad to do maintenance on. That truck idles smoother and is quieter than my '95, or any '95 in this case. Something was different in those trucks
