Dilemna on injectors

Awhile ago, I scored a set of injectors on E-bay "Buy in Now" for $99, I think it was back in 2003. I sent the injectors to Jonathan (Swamps) to be modified. He called me back to tell me that the barrels and plungers were scored. He recommended to upgrade them to the 530 size, so I would not need big oil. This was at a time when big oil was not readily available. The injectors came back as Hybrids-250/173. The injectors have been sitting wrapped up in my garage every since. Also sitting along side the injectors is a 17* SD HPOP.

Well, my injector O-rings are leaking. My fuel filter is coated black with oil and I'm down 4qts of oil per 3,000mi . My turbo pedistal is also leaking out of the EBPV rod.

I have a stock fuel system and stock turbo. Basically my motor is stock. I also have a 4 position Tony Wildman chip. I have a 7.3 aluminum tanked IC mounted but not plumbed. My trans has been replaced with a Suncoast trans triple disk converter.

I'm concerned about the Hybrids blowing headgasket. What should I do?

Since I have to remove the turbo, I'm thinking about getting a D66.

Opinions?

Thanks

You would have a mean truck with those parts. You could go with an aftermarket fuel system upgrade, also. The injectors could definitely use it. Durability will depend on how you treat the truck. You can choose tunes that back the power down some if you are worried.

On the other hand, if you don't want 'em, I'll take 'em

How do you know this? We will replace the O rings anyway when installing the new injectors, so no problem there

We can find your oil leak, it will likely be an HPOP O ring. It will be a free or VERY cheap fix. It could also be the IPR being towards the front, but the HPOP O rings are more common.

We could pull the pedistal and gut and plug it to get rid of that or install a new one.

Best part about those hybrids is they can be tuned wayyyy back and be run on a 17* hpop and stock OBS fuel system.

Don't worry about headgaskets until you're pushing 38+ psi.

Pretty much what was already said.
Tune them 'back'.
Don't worry about blowing head gaskets with a stock turbo. If you're pushing that much boost for that long, your oem turbo will puke long before the gaskets will. IMO, anyway...

High Pressure Oil Pump It supplies high pressure oil to the injectors to increase fuel pressure.

Where is the HPOP o-ring? I know the IPR ones.
