Question Good Injectors

What kind of injectors are good but not too expensive? Also, do have to get a set of them, cause I have a friend with a cummins (or cumapart) and he said he only got 2 100hp injectors. It still runs, but can you do that with a Powerstroke?

Injectors ordinarily require specific tuning to run properly and if you have different injectors then it'll likely be off. I've never heard of running different injectors but that just sounds silly.

Anyway - injectors for cummins and powerstrokes are completely different. A whole set of big injectors for Cummins cost less then 800 bucks while 3 of the 8 injectors for your truck cost 900 from Alliant.

What supporting mods do you have on your truck besides what is in your signature and we can tell you more about which injectors to go with!

Skip the stock turbo and jump up to something like a TN... especially if you're going to be upsizing in injectors. Ge ready to dump 1800+ bucks on injectors if you do it yourself.

No you cant do different sized injectors in either a powerstroke or a cummins, i
dont care what your friend tells you. if you want cheap and you have decent mechanical ability try DIY-Injectors.com or if you dont want to do them yourself Beans Diesel Performance.

I second that...it doesnt matter if its a gasser or a diesel.....you cant run different injectors in the same motor at the same time and expect good results. Id caution heavily on the DIY injectors....if you arent SURE you can do it right....dont attemt it. It is do-able but its not something for your average joe eitehr...

If your injectors are in great shape you could do it, but like Marc cautioned you only want to do it if you're absolutely sure you can do it right. There are people out there that have never touched an injector before and did it and it worked... but they won't be holding the bill if you screw it up.

Yes I agree with you Luke, Marc, and Marty with the DIY's. I have done a few injector replacement jobs on the International tow trucks that my boss owns and they went very smoothly. But then again on the other hand I have never disassembled an injector to get to the internal parts, but I feel pretty confident I could handle the task. I'm very good mechanically and learn quick so I think I'm gonna look further into the DIY's. Maybe I'll have an install write-up for all of us within the next month or so.
