Ready to pull the trigger on injectors. Last minute advice needed.
Ok, yes I am slow but, I have new glow plugs in the shop and I have read several sets of instructions on how to change the injectors.
I'm fairly certain I will be going with the Stage 1.5 injectors from Jim at Rosewood Diesel. I have a very unoffical goal of 400 hp and most of the supporting mods are done for this step (see my signature block for listing). My question is, do I ask Jim for 160cc 30% over injectors, 175/cc 30% over or 180cc 30% over injectors?
The stage 1.5 injectors appeal to me because they claim to provide better fuel economy, more power and allow me to maintain some level of sanity. I am not considering them but, Swamps offers a 175/146 injector, what does the 146 mean? Not 146 % over stock? The reason I ask is, they claim 2-3 mpg over stock injectors.
Would my BB in the FPR provide plenty of fuel to run these injectors while towing in the mountians?
Would a D66 be necessary immediately after installing these injectors?
If I drive sensibily, can I use this setup with the stock transission for a while until I get my 6.0 torque converter and BTS valve body?
Am I barking up the wrong tree? No I am not intersted in hybrids. My truck will be for dump runs, towing my pickup camper and boat or my four place snowmobile trailer in the winter. I do tow in the mountains but, increased fuel economy and reliability are more important to me than raw horse power numbers. I have no plans to run my truck across a dyno.
Would I be better off going with stage 1 injectors (160cc with stock nozzles)? Or I could go with 175 or 180cc and stay with stock nozzles. Would the stock nozzles allow the full 180ccs of fuel available per injection cycle to used?
I bought my Tony Wildman chip from Raul at Stealth Diesel. Can I send it back to them for a reburn after while the injectors are being done or do I have to send it Tony for the reburn? Do you guys have any advice on what the best tunes to order might be with my new injectors? I currently have high idle (so I can warm my truck when snowmobiling), daily driver, tow, heavy tow, street and extreme.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
