alright guys with injectors...

Hey maybe you guys can save me some trouble

can you guys running bigger injectors tell me what stage you have and how they do towing? what works good for power and towing.

basically i'm shopping... i have a 8700 trailer i tow, not frequently, but long distances when i do, my truck is mostly a DD. i have an inter cooler and chip, hpop on the way. My inner Man says go big or go home, but reality is... what do i really need. I was liking the Rosewood stage 2.5's 200cc hybrid 30%, do you think they are too much without a turbo upgrade? i plan on doing one in the future. any experiece or insight would be awesome!

call jim at rosewood and see what he says. i am in the process of upgrading my engine and i called jim he said go with 2s however they scare me. i tow 16K lbs several times a year and 12K every other week. if you get bigger ones you can always detune them. that is what i think i'm going to do

I have stage 1's from FFD and I love them. TONS of power. I'm running PHP tunes and he offers custom towing tunes. If you do go hybrids he can detune your tow tune down to a stage 1 and I would think that would be plenty for towing 8700 lbs. For towing I honestly don't think you need anything bigger than stage 1 power. But for play time the hybrids sure would be fun to have.

I'm getting a full return system on the truck now. But before yes I had stock fuel. If you want the hybrids I would say go for it! Just have your tow detuned for stage 1 equivalent power IMHO. Because let's face it, your not gonna be hot rodding with 9K lbs on your ***.

the stock fuel system can hardly keepup with stock injectors at WOT. if you go bigger you will need to do a e-fuel system. problem is with stock fuel it will run them and have plenty of power but everytime you drop below 50psi of pressure you are destroying you brand new injectors. could be wrong on the number but still you dont want them to wear out any faster then you have to so why stay on stock feul...

bigger sticks = E-feul!!!!, no way around it.

thanks again for all the info. was looking into an e fuel system, but i didn't know that it was that critical, and didn't know to keep that much fuel pressure. guess i'll be needing to get that all worked out soon. i like how yall are building custom systems, but I think i may still go with a kit.
