DIY Injectors

Came accoss this site today : DIY-Injectors.com . Saw for $250 you could modify your own injectors using their parts to make them flow 160cc ! Ive been looking at injectors and 250 bucks is cheap when looking at injectors.

Then i saw the hybrids for 1400. but they probaly would require supporting mods like upgrade fuel system, head studs, turbo and intercool the truck. right?? What would it take for me to get my truck on the road and produce decent power with the hybrids??

Also rebuliding injectors, hard? ive rebuilt engine and done all the work on my trucks/cars before. would it be a challenge (i wouldnt mind a challenge)

well, I know that roosewood is a repuable source. also i know on the newer 7.3s you can run hybrids, but you need a new turbo. i heard its time consuming but easy to rebuild them, plus Jim sends you really good instructions.

You can just throw the hybrids in and run them de-tuned. Get the programming turned up as you get more and more supporting mods.
If you do it have a spottless work area and take your time, it's not a race. Good luck

I meant de-tuned, as in not getting the full potential with them. this is something most tuners can do, Wildman and DP. You ask to have your injectors output 'de-tuned' so you dont pop anything.

I looked at doing DIY injector kit but when I looked into it I found that I would have to machine the intensifier piston. You can buy pre-machined pistons for about $225. I ended up paying Jim at Rosewood Diesel (DIY) to work them over and modify them to 160's cause I figured it was worth the extra money to have someone who knew what they were looking at working on my injectors. Granted it was $475 instead of $250 but when I figured in buying the premachined pistions into the cost it made this a deal cause Jim did the work for me.
