Stage 1's v. Stage 2's
Recently my truck has started acting up. It is having a really hard time starting when it is cold. I have already checked and replaced the GPR, checked the batteries, the stater if fine, there is diesel in it! before the cold weather set in the engine would occasionaly lope once or twice then run like normal, it wasnt until a few days ago that it took almost 30 seconds to fire.
I might be wrong, this is my first diesel truck, but I think this means my injectors are going bad...
If that is the problem, I am going to be buyin new injectors.
SO, the question is do I get stage 1's or 2's? I would like more power, and better fuel mileage if possible (currently 16.5 highway 10 city). I do tow a travel trailer with it over the Sierra Nevadas twice a year.
I have been doing research on them and I know that stage 2's would require a bigger HPOP and possibly and intercooler? what else would I be required to run with stage 2's? I hear that it is better to get the 2's and tune them down until I put more supporting mods on, but with my use of the truck would I want to have stage 2's?
