New Stage 2 injectors from full force need some help

I just bought stage 2 160cc single shots from matt with the gearhead tunes and I put them in today however truck seems to run great pulls great on top etc minus the fact its kinda stumbley at idle... also its smokeing white smoke when i give it throttle and let off. still not sure if its still burning off or what... anyway my question is what did you guys run into after installing a set of these ??

You may have not seated one of them all the way. Could be an O-ring got nic'd upon install.

Recheck your torque spec on the hold down bolt.

I'd give it a bit. It can take upwards of a hundred miles to clear all the air sometimes.

It CAN clear out that easily.
But it typically takes 40-50 miles.
Last time it took mine close to 100.

Let us know if it clears up or not. Its always nice to see when an OP replies if its fixed. This helps others with similar issues when the search and read these threads as there are loads of "empty" threads.

Superstroker!

I believe I read a post on here with pairing of #3 and #8 injectors throwing codes. It pointed to there not actually being a real problem and possibly a phantom code. If you did a compression test then disregard what I'm saying but I don't want you to have to throw a ton of money in your truck if you don't have to. I'll see if I can dig up the thread

Posted from tdog I think.

I got this from Swamps site last night and am going with it....essentially I am going to ignore this one and if the issue gets worse I will run a compression test and bypass the dam AE program and possible CPS interference since I cannot get a black sensor anymore.


"Cylinder Contribution Tests can often flag cylinders #1 & #8, or #3 & #8 as both failing the CCT. Anytime #1 & #8 are paired as hacing balance faults...especially on 99-03 trucks, this may indicate a fuel delivery problem (pressure, contamination, etc). The pairing of #3&#8 are “companion” cylinders...so an internal or external engine balance problem will often show up as 3&8 cyls failing balance tests. We have also seen a CPS (camshaft position sensor) show false codes related to cyls 3&8...however if the engine runs normally, then it is our recommendation to simply ignore these phantom codes."
