Injector Questions

I have a couple of questions about aftermarket injectors. I live in California so the smog rules are pretty strict. I need something that will give me more power, hopefully with other mods I can make up to 400-450 hp, and I need them not to smoke. When smoging a diesel in California they do a smoke test, if it smoke even a little its an automatic fail. I was wondering if stage ones would be enough or is this idea even possible. If this is possible what would be a good set to get. With custom tuning is this 400-450 hp mark obtainable. Thanks in advance.

Couldn't you get to the HP level you want and just run the modified stock setting when you get your test done? Maybe I read the post wrong. I know there are people in Cali running what you're after.

INFRNL when I take the smog test I cant have any programing in the truck. But if I can hide the switch for my TS chip I could propably do that. Is there anyone who makes smoke free tunes for a TS style chip? CT I have a 2000 so is there something you would recommend.

If the inspector see a chip you will fail.
You can't run a single shot truck with single shot inj's..

TW tunes are what we recomened for 7.3's.

You may be stuck with stock splits..then best mods are a SRP1.1, TW tunes and if the inspectors don't care a reg return...

Cali must be strict. Here in Colorado, I tell them I have a chip but it's on stock setting; they do not care as long as it passes. This is why I said what I did.
Stock tuning will not smoke. Some of the tuners do better than others at eliminating the smoke but it shouldn't smoke unless you are on 120/140 setting, possibly 100hp setting.

I know PHP tunes are good about smoke and I think TW tunes are good about minimal smoke. CT (caryt) can set you up with TW tunes and has the best prices on many items.

I think you need to find Cali guys or guys in your area to see what they are doing. I know there are guys in Cali with upgraded injectors,etc without issues for smog testing.

If you have a 2000, you should have forged rods and can teach your goal easily

Well INFRNL the guy I take my truck to does not care that I have a chip as long as it is on the stock setting, but if I put stage one injectors in my truck its propably going to smoke. Isnt it? If my truck wont smoke with stage ones and no chip then I dont have to worry, but if my truck needs a tune so it wont smoke then I will need to hide my chip. My smog guy can bend the rules a little but if he knows that I have a tune going to my truck during the test he will fail me.

I do not have the experience these other guys do and do not have my injectors in yet.
with your chip having injectors and keeping stock tuning will require what they call a modified stock setting. This is basically like putting your truck back to stock now excepts it it tuned/programmed to run your single shot injectors without issue. As far as I know; there will be no smoke just as your stock truck is now.

Hopefully someone will clarify this in better words/detail.
