SD injectors in OBS truck

I currently have a set of 8 perfect working order 2001 injectors that came out of a motor I parted out. My question is.. Will they be any sort of upgrade for my 1997? If so, what do I need to do to get them to work? I noticed that they flow higher CC's but the stage 1's I was looking at also flow 160cc, I understand the whole split shot and single shot deal, but I figured thats just programming? Im only asking this because the injectors are FREE, so I figured why spend the money if I dont have to. Im also chipping this truck with a DP f5 in the future, so if that makes a difference. All Id like to know is.. What does it take to get them to work? Will they be like a stage one in my OBS? Is it even worth the hassle? Should I just get the DIY stage ones? Id like to get this whole setup done fairly soon. All help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You would need the DP Tuner(or any other custom tunes) when you put them in. Jody would have to tune the pcm to be able to run the split shots. You will see a gain, however not as much as the stage 1 single shots. Also fuel mileage suffers alittle bit with split shots.

Won't run very well without a new 17* would be much better off selling them and getting stage 1's and good tunes..TW, Bean, Cale, Matt.

I highly recomend against it. Sell them and buy a set of properly built stage Is.

The ADs will work in your truck but they won't run correctly. The split shot is a mechanical feature in the injector. It's not just the programming. But the programming has to be set up to run them. It's mainly an issue of timeing. The split shots need more advance because they have to fire the pilot shot before the main shot. So running them in your truck the timing will be very retarded. The opposite is true if you put single shots in a split shot truck. The timing is to much advanced and they really don't run right. Lopy erratic idle and runability issues unless you get the proper tuning.
