So today I pulled off my passenger side valve cover to test the injectors. My truck hasn't been running 100% and I had a feeling it was an injector and I was right. When I unplugged the number 8 injector nothing changed like it did when I unplugged the other 3. The funny thing is with the # 8 unplugged or plugged in idled the same (telling me it was bad) but that's how it's idled since I bought the truck over a year ago. I guess maybe it's been shot the whole time lol. It doesn't blow any white smoke which is weird but anyway, now that I know it's bad it time to upgrade injectors! I got a good deal on a set of good used injectors and I'm going to use them as cores. I can't decide what size injectors to go with or what company. My truck has a 3 1/2" down pipe, 4" straight pipe and 6" tip, tymar intake and Ts chip. Everything else is stock.
I was thinking about going with Rosewood stage 1.5's or 2's. I really want to go with 2's but I don't know how long it'll be before I can upgrade my turbo and hpop. I'm going to rebuild my turbo when I do the injectors bc I have to take it off to fix a oil leak on the pedestal. How long will a rebuilt stock turbo hold up if I drive it light footed most the time?
I was also considering Baby swamps since they offer a free reburn for my chip to match the injectors and they have a 5 year warranty.
The last choice is stage 1's from unlimited diesel performance because the price is about the same as the other and they come with a life time warranty.
I just don't want to regret buying stage 1's or 1.5's and wishing I bought stage 2's. If I had the extra money I would go with hybrids but that few extra hundred dollars is going towards the valve cover harness, glow plugs and the rebuild kit for the turbo.
I have to decide within the next couple days and I would like some input on what others think and how long the stock rebuilt turbo would last with stage 2's. How noticeable is the power between baby swamps and stage 1's and 1.5's? Thanks, sorry for the long post!
