injector flow testing

what happens if some of the injectors don't flow the same? my 02 7.3 has a kinda choppy shudder feeling around 40 mph. i have new injectors in and didn't know what the symptoms are if the set isn't matched right. what would the truck run like if they weren't? thanks

Where did you buy the injectors or have them rebuilt? If it was Pensicola diesel then send them back. I have had nothing but problems with their products. They do not flow test their injectors and they are junk. Just do a search on them and you will see the complaints about them. If they are not flow tested then you will not get a good power balance from each cylinder. Also, you could have one that over fuels and you will never see it on you EGT gauge especially if you have your pyro in only one bank of the engine (like most do). This isn't a problem if your supplier or rebuilder flow tests the injectors (like Rosewood Diesel). You could have an injector that is dumping fuel in a cylinder and end up buring a hole in a piston. If there was a large imbalance then you might feel it, but chances are that you would never know.

i got them from full force... its just in the 35-45 range it seems sluggish and truck shakes a little nothing horrible feel it in the wheel and a good vibration in the pedal in the 1300-1600 range. after it downshifts to 3rd or 4th whatevers in the 38mph range..drove it hard to chicago and when i came back i got a high exhaust presser code but i don't think that would cause it. should i do a cylinder balance test? contribution and buzz test pass fine

A shutter felt in the wheel and in the pedal would make me think drivetrain. There is no link between the pedal and the engine other than a few wires going to the PCM. I know that doesnt explain the sluggish feeling that you are feeling, but I think you may have something going in your front end that is why you are feeling it in your steering wheel. I went to Full Force's website and nothing states that they flow test their remans. I see that you can have them flow test injectors for $250 I do believe, but that doesn't mean that they flow test their remans. Any test is going to give you information and information is key. Is your truck a 4x4?

yes truck is a 4x4 i think its motor related because soon as i let up off the throttle it goes away and then when i get on it again there it is again. could a injector or 2 be off and flowing different by chance? what would that cause if it was?

What year is your truck? The 99's have had trouble with their factory torque converters. If I were a betting man, and I am, I would say it's your torque converter. This would explain the shutter, and the sluggishness that you are refering to.
