New injectors and turbo!!

Who do you guys reccomend for some new injectors and a turbo? I melted my injectors so I think I am going to go with new stage 1 injectors. Also dusted the turbo but I think I'm just going to get a new wheel. How is the wicked wheel? good. Thanks guys.

If you dusted the turbo you better compression check the motor... Motors get eaten when turbos get eaten...

How does one melt injectors?

How much HP do you want? With the stock turbo you are rather limited with injectors, stock sticks will push the turbo beyond its limits... Stage 1 and 2 even more...

I did get a compression test and everything passed.

The tech working on my truck said I melted all eight injectors, not sure what he meant by that either, but they are all bad.

What other mods do think I need to get some stage 1?

Whats your opinion on the wicked wheel?

WW is going to do nothing for you... It is a bandaid for surge. If your wanting stage 1 injectors get some NEW AC injectors and then a ATS compressor housing and maybe a 1.00 exhaust housing.

FYI I have never seen a "melted" injector...

Melted piston... yes... Melted injector... not going to happen. Not trying to diss ya, just dont want you getting taken for a ride.

sounds good.. i just heards some good things about WW.

Oh I've heard of melted pistons as well but when he told me "melted injectors" I got the feeling of me not really trusting him to be my mechanic anymore.

I am going to another recommended diesel shop now and hey thanks for looking out for me and the pics of the piston. That's what makes the .Org the best mechanic out their.

WW will help if you have surge... some trucks it fixes it, most it helps... ATS housing will stop it.

At 200k I would bet your injectors are just wore out... thats about how far they will go...
