DO NOT BUY reman injectors

I thought I would save some money and buy some reman injectors on my 2001 F350 with the 7.3 with 238,000 miles

To say the least, the "new" injectors were worse off than the originals in the truck.

Ended up having to buy brand new injectors. Bought 4 Alliant Power injectors from my local injection place. Will be doing the other 4 injectors later. Couldnt swing $2500 at once for injectors and the labor.

I lost $600 on labor the first time around... REALLY not happy and got burned. Live and learn. Buy quality injectors ($250-$300 a piece) and do it right the first time.

Just installed the 4 new injectors today and the truck is running MUCH MUCH better. Cant wait to get the other 4 injectors in the truck and get it running right.

While I wait, I will be acquiring a new high pressure oil pump (stealth/adrenaline) and installing everything at the same time

Better yet, how about don't buy remaned injectors from a place that isn't reputable..... There's quite a few places that sell top notch reman injectors so to just get on here and tell people not to buy ANY reman injectors is just ignorant.... Better watch out running a stealth/adrenaline after all they are built off cores so technically they are remaned as well!

Plus the good injector shops only charge about $125 per injector to re-build it with new parts and turn it into a stage 1. And i'd say theres a good chance that they are even better than the new Alliants.

So if they were under warranty, can you prove that the injectors were the problem, if so, I would be going after this shop you bought them from for the money it cost to have your truck at the shop again.

truck went into shop with NO service engine soon light
#8 injector was known to be bad according to Snap On Solus code reader (you could see it was bad)
4 reman injectors were ordered (got 4 different brand AD injectors)
4 reman injectors were installed at the tune of $600
Truck now throwing "service engine soon" light due to psi loss at high rpms (also verified on Snap On Solus reader)
Truck still running like shiet
Bought 4 brand new Alliant Power AD injectors
Installed at shop (buddies shop, first time without me there, this time with me helping. $300)
NO "service engine soon light", Power is back up top, pressure seems good, and smoking at idle is now gone


So yes, I'm pretty damn sure the REMAN injectors caused all my issues

I am not doubting that it caused your problem, I was just saying if it were my truck I would have tried to work things out with who ever you purchased the remans through to try and get them to cover the shop cost, the 300 I guess you payed the second time around. And since you were not there the first time, is there any possibility that the injectors were not installed properly?
