Wrong injector

So yeh I thought I had mini me's I took the previous owners word for it.

I was having some idling issues and some overly smokey issues so I am trading my supposed mini mes for strokeorcroaks stage 1 (my old injectors) %80 nozzles and some cash.

Now I popped my valve covers today to pop out my injectors and guess what I found. B-codes

I did some very simple measurements with the help of Johnathan at Swamps and he said I have %300 or %400 over nozzles. He guessed these were at least 300cc as well. Because he tuned my truck for 250ccs because he recently live tuned someone with 250s and passed it on to me.

So long story short Derek is getting a crazy good deal capable of 700hp with some twins, and I feel like an idiot for listening to the previous owner.

But yeh I now know why I was pegging 1600 egts on no time and why it smoked like crazy. Just wish the previous owner put some twins on it.

I know you can run them just fine, but like you said it is all in the tuning... it could be a real hot smokey pig...

not to worried about that... If I was I wouldn't be running 40's...

I almost went to Bcodes... but didn't quite think it was an "upgrade"

B-codes are what holds a lot of people below 550hp. People that hit 600hp + are all running b-codes. If Derek can afford twin, , he will hit 700hp no problem.

I ran 46s with stock gearing with these. Gee I wonder why I blew my turbo.
