I'm a new user

Hey all I'm new to the site and new to forums period. Iv got a 97 350 cclb and I'm wanting to get some advice on some upcoming purchases. I'm wanting to do injectors manly cuz I have 327,000 on the originals and I just want a little extra kick. I want to do upgrade on hpop and a fuel pump. I was wanting to know if I should do all at once to keep up with the bigger injectors or if it will be ok to do one at a time. And I would like some opinions on brands of each. I'm not to sure about the injectors. I was thinkin stage 1s. I don't need alot of hp just a little more than stock. The fuel pump I either was gonna go with air dog or fass. And hpop I was thinkin adrenaline or terminator. What do you think? And since I have two tanks does that mean I need two air dogs or does it mount between the bowl and the selector valve? Thanks for the help and opinions.

Maybe instead of the stage ones go with something in between like baby swamps. Since Your only looking for a little extra power. I've heard a lot more good thing about the t500 than any of the others and the main plus is the price tag. I can not comment much on the air dog other than I believe you a better just upgrading the lift pump instead. Again correct me if I'm wrong but I'm sure u can use the search feature and you will find an answer to all of those questions. Also welcome to the org you will find more information than you will ever need. Good luck

A set of stage 1 injectors will really wake the truck up. I would recommend either Full Force or P.I.S. It would be a good idea to upgrade the turbo as well. Going to a T4 or T4i mount style turbo (H2E, Bell, etc.) would be ideal if you can fit it into your budget.

A T500 HPOP would be a great upgrade too. The stock 15* pump has a hard time keeping up with the demand.

There are many options as far as fuel systems go. Switching to an e-fuel style setup combined with a regulated return is beneficial, especially with the bigger injectors.

We can get you setup with everything listed above if you are interested. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like some pricing.

Thanks for the opinions. To Justin I have a Dp tuner on my truck I like it. There a couple tunes that I have that I don't care for like the economy especially. It dogs down real bad if there's any incline in the road I go about 45mph on the highway with that. Any idea why? And when I do these upgrades on my truck are there tunes that you suggest to get or can Dp do custom tunes to my truck

Maybe use the Daily Driver tune instead. I can't speak for Justin but Econo tunes are just that, for economy. Not racing, hill climbing, or...well...anywhere you are constantly changing speeds. They have the shortest pulse and timed injection event, lowest horse power ratings, and in my experience the most noise from the engine. Mine hates Econo, she won't even start in Econo if the motors hot.

How old are your tunes? Justin's partners may have upgraded their tune specs since your chip was flashed. Might just need a re-burn to make your truck happy. It's always suggested to have the chip re-burned with new performance parts installs. Otherwise the truck can't really take advantage of the new goodies.

Anyway

Has it always done that? Shifting is based upon pedal position and vehicle speed. If there is a problem with either input, it can cause issues.

If it has always done it, we can modify the tune for you to downshift easier. We also offer a daily driving tune for hilly/mountainous areas that is for daily driving in areas like you speak of.

We can do the custom tuning for all of those modifications. If the parts are purchased through us, your tuning upgrades are free.

Yes, we offer a Daily Mountain tune for driving in non-flat areas. It keeps the RPM's elevated so you experience no lug. This is the ideal tune when daily driving in non-flat areas.
