stage 1 injectors

my van is hot now, installed beans stage 1 one shot injectors, modded injector driver, and 6 position on the fly chip. I don't know yet if the mileage will improve but the motor responds like a big block gas motor, no lag. I have a 4" turbo back straight pipe and there is no lag when you press the gas!!! I have to be careful when starting out cause when the torque converter hits stall speed it wants to go! I can't answer the mpg question yet, but it's put a smile on my face, I didn't know the 7.3 powerstroke could do that!

Anyway I did these mods to try and increase the mpgs. So far I'm having trouble staying off the gas, I'll let you know how it's doing when I run some tanks through it!

While I had it open I installed new glow plugs from tousley ford, about 11 bucks a piece shipped, and it started this cool morning like it did when it was new. It fired up like it was allready warm. Now the big trick is to make the rest of my old tired truck to start acting better!

and the truck fought back

Drivers door latch broke, door won't latch shut anymore... paid 87 bucks at the local ford dealership for a new latch, now I just have to find the time to untie the hillbilly rope off the door and fix it.... You don't know fun until you buy an ex fleet truck it's always something that shouldn't break in a million years breaking.

cold auto transmission shudder in od

Cold auto transmission shudder in overdrive?
I can definitively answer this question now, that it is possible for this symptom to be caused by faulty injectors. my truck was really really bad with this shudder in the 37-52 mph range of od it was undrivable. had to push the button to turn od off until it either warmed up or went past 52mph. Installed the new injectors and no more cold transmission shudder. I had my doubts about this one, as it doesn't do it in first gear when you start out at low rpms, or any other gear, but od and low rpms when cold made that motor jump up and down!

I just wanted to report this as I had a hard time of searching forums before I found 1 post somewhere that reported this problem to be injectors.
