Looking for some advice on new injectors

Ok folks, I'm looking in to getting new injectors this week for my 2000 7.3. I'm not heavily modded yet. I have a T-500 Terminator HPOP, straight piped exhaust with 4" turbo back down pipe to a 5" turndown, 6.0 intercooler, 6.0 trans cooler with an additional offsite trans cooler with fan, wicked wheel, and also buying a DP Tuner this week as well.



I have been looking at the stage 1 and I have seen a few stage 1.5's that I was checking out. I have looked at the FF injectors and they seem pretty good but I read about PowerStruck Injectors a guy had but couldn't really find much on them, and there is 1,000's of others out there, just wanted to see what everyone else is using and what their thoughts are on them. I am not looking for much, not making a race truck out of an 8,500 lb truck just a more economical DD.

I just installed a set of PIS 160/30....on new bodies. If I had to do it over I'd likely go 80% nozzles.

Economy with 11'' of lift and 41's?? Bigger injectors aren't really gonna be economical, maybe a slight bit. New or rebuilt injectors is where the economy will come from. New 160/30's will yield better mpg than a set of worn out 180/100's with 250k miles on them. I know this is an injector thread but are you geared for the tires you're running?

Full force, PIS, Rosewood, and Swamps are a few of the common injectors builders used by guys on here. I'm currently thinking about a set of Full Force 160/30's.


EDIT: Don't order the DP until you decided what injectors you're getting so Jody can tune the chip for them.

You might think with the lift and tires I'm an idiot for wanting economy but right now I get around 20mpg on the highway and about 14-15mpg in the city. I am running factory gears in the truck currently but I have 4.56's at home but I like the hwy mpg I get and as of right now I do a lot of hwy driving. With the factory 3.73's and 41's it works out for me to do about 80mph at 1500 rpms.
I plan on ordering the injectors and after ordering the tuner, since I will have to take out the injectors and IDM and send them both out to different places. I'm leaning towards the PSI injectors after a few have suggested him and he isn't far from my house.

Is that hand calculated mileage with the speedo calibrated for tire size? Just make sure Jody knows to tune your chip for whatever injectors you get.

It's calculated based off of what I put in the tank filled up till I can see fuel in the neck before and after the drive to see how many actual gallons I have used to a GPS mileage track. The odo isn't correct even though I had it calibrated with an Abbott ERA a few years ago. I have since then increased the tire size.

I know I have to be 100% exact on what I have with Jody, no sense in giving them wrong info since it will mess me up.

I do all of my own installs and repairs since shops cost so much and I enjoy doing the work myself knowing it was done right and for my cost not some jamook trying to rack me over the coals.

That's pretty good than. I agree on working on it myself, unless I don't have the time. There's only one guy that I will let work on my truck and that's because he knows what he's doing and the prices are good.

EDIT: why does your IDM need to be removed?

I like my p.i.s. 230/100 if I was you I would at least go that big, they can be detuned but they give you options if you want more power in the future.
I would go with a set of factory 4.30 axles. They would help your Trans live a little longer.
How much lift are you running to clear those 41's?

As far as the IDM removal I was thinking I needed to get it reburied but forgot about the fact that I just ordered the DP-Tuner today that will include the needed tuning.

I talked to both Jody and David today from DP and PIS and they both agree that the 165/30's will be fine for what I am looking for. It's an 8500lb house, no way I'm going to get it hauling *** (unless I have a bunch of women in it). And as far as the gear ratio goes, I kind of like the factory gears since I run 80mph on the hwy and am only running about 1500-1700 rpm to achieve it. I get pretty decent mpg at that rate and keep a close eye on all of my temps. My trans rarely gets above 160 on the hwy with the dual trans coolers and fans and I am pretty religious about fluid/filter changes on it. I've done the gear ratio calculations several times and it keep coming up with 4.56's which I finally bought about 2 years ago but they are still sitting in my back room waiting to go on.

Carolina- what is the php hydra? Sorry I'm pretty good when it comes to this but yet still a newb for the most part.
