Stock Fuel System Discussion
The stock fuel system is pretty basic but I have a question about it. Both of the fuel rails are "dead-headed" as there is an entry of fuel but no return. Because of this, many of our trucks have a different injector, #8, to help it get fuel. The #6 injector supposedly "robs" #8 from getting fuel causing cackle. The even injectors are on the driver's side which the fuel is fed from the front of the rail at injector #2.
If this is true then the passenger side should have the same problem but all of the odd injectors are the same. The fuel is fed from the back, opposite of the evens, in injector #7 to injector #1. Why doesn't injector #1 need to be different if injector #8 does? (being that these injectors are both the farthest from the fuel feed)
Anyone know the answer?
