Question Injector Help! Newbie needs Info

So my search on Injectors has gone too long trying to find what I am looking for. I just want to know the basic's on Injectors, I have no clue what each stage Injector means and I guess the Cc rating of them. I am curious to figure this out in the future because I will be buying a PStroke soon and have been trying to find all the info I can so that I can either upgrade a 7.3 or bugout all the 6.0 problems Any and everything will help Thanks

What exactly would you like to know? When it's in stage form it doesn't mean much, a stage 2 can be one of a ton of different sizes. The cc size refers to amount of fuel injected per 1000 injection events. The nozzle size means how much over the stock amount it flows. Let me know what details you want to know and I'll share more with you.

Like, when I read the forums and guys will say yeah I think i'm gonna put stage 2 injectors in. Well what is the difference between the stage 1 and stage 2 or stage 3 injector? Can it completely vary or is a stage 1 injector all the same based on "stage" I guess.

Just the bigger the stage the more fuel it puts in... The exact amount varies by builder

Well if that isn't a vague reply I don't know what is. Stage 1 is a bigger cc with a stock nozzle, stage 2 is bigger cc and bigger nozzle, stage 3 is a hybrid. Imo rating injectors by stages is pointless you can have a 160/100 or a 200/100 and they are both considered stage 2s yet completely different in capabilities.

So... The higher the stage number the more fuel will come out the injector and there are lots of differences on how it's do exactly

Aren't you a genius. My main point is a stage rating is pointless. If you knew so much about injectors, why didn't you explain the acutal difference. Anyone can say a stage 3 will flow mor than a stage 1. I just wish people would stop rating PSD injectors as stages and hp... Neither mean anything, try to call a tuner and say I have stage whatever injector and see how well they can tune it. When you rate injectors as a cc/nozzle size they know max flow rate and how fast it can empty.

That's my point sir stages don't mean a whole lot actual numbers do... So basically higher stage number means more fuel is about all you can say....

Can you please explain what the 100% means. I have never heard this before until a month ago when I was getting a race tune from Elite Diesel. I said I had Hypermax 190cc injectors and they asked me if they were 100%. I have no idea. I do know the internals are modified and the tip is honed out. I know this becuase I have taken them apart to spwap parts with new injectors per Hypermax verbal instructions cause I had a period of time where I was eating injectors. I think it was the ROyal Purple Oil, but that is yet another issue. I no longer eat injectors, but still have no idea what 100% means. Don't intend to hyjack this thread, but thought it may help with the purchasing of injectors. Thanks.

100% means 100% more fuel than stock. There are a lot of different nozzle sizes, pretty much anything between 30% and 200% which just means the % of fuel the nozzle can flow over a stock nozzle.
