injector swap

How much of a nightmare is it to replace the injectors?

How about the turbo? I was thinking about puting a bigger turbo so I could run stage 2's instead of 1. I heard the ford house pulls the cab to replace the turbo.

no need to lift the cab on a 7.3 the 6.0 and newer yes. and injectors can be a little fustrating if you dont have the skills/tools

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

Tools?

12mm for the batteries...

7/16ths for the IC boots...

Strait screwdiver for the intake...

10mm for the large wiring harness plug that passes over the drivers side valve cover.

13mm for the valve covers...

8mm for the injector hold down bolt... (you only remove one per injector)

Small hook style prybar, or you can just use a long screwdriver like I did the very first time, to pull the injector up outa the injector cups...

Syringe from the local feed store and 2 feet of 1/4'' or smaller rubber tubing, to siphon out the oil and fuel that drains into the cylinders when you pull the injectors...

Deadblow (rubber) mallet to GENTLY tap the injectors until they seat in the cups.

So, one trip to the store for something that most people don't keep in the garage. I can pull all the injectors in less than an hour unless someone is yackin my ear off while I'm working. I usually take a little longer than that to get it all back together though, as I'm taking my time to make sure everything is staying clean and going in properly.

It's pretty simple.
