i wouldn't. For an extra couple hundred buks, you get a set of remans and they have been flow-tested.

idk i really enjoy the diy stuff . for instance i have an 8sec street car . i built the entire thing from stock , im an aircraft machinist so i fabricated some of the engine and carb parts also. yes i guess i could throw the old checkbook at the truck as most people do . but there is a huge sense of pride that comes with diy building . i was just wondering if anyone tryed the kit.i have used there injector oil change additive for a few years and it works really well . i really noticed a differance with my 340k 97 obs. i was thinking of building a set of stage two , as i have access to nozzles of any type i choose. i dont really understand the "FLOW TESTED" idea. i understand what the procedure is. BUTT, an injector is a machine . if they are mechanicaly identical then under the same parameters they should flow the same . its a physics thing i guess. so how exactly would you make adjustments if one doesent "flow Test " properly. or is the test to see if the machinist or builder messed up and one or more injectors is mechanicaly different?

ive done one of the diy kits , not that one in particular , i understand the whole i did it myself pride thing , but in my opinion like another memebr said , its more with injectors about making sure they flow even and for the couple hundred dollars more its worth the insurance of knowing they are correct and if not the ability to send them back and get them correct which doesnt happen very often


as far as that kit goes , it just really looks like a nozzle swap , and there is alot more to injectors than just dissassembly / clean / reassemble , there are clearances that have to be correct ,cold start issues from those clearances ,etc.


call and ask ryan at full force diesel about the tolerances and components inside the injector that may give issues , may or may not change your mind

There seems to be a stigma to the injector thing. .it seems like people kind of jump on the bandwagon a little . Idk when rosewood was offering a DIY kit everybody was so happy about it . I understand these guys all know there stuff . But there is no textbook. They learned by doing.am I wrong? So if your mechanicaly inclined and have any kind of reverse engineering skill whatsoever. You do what I did. I bought one brand new injector, one reman . And I have a set of bad ones. I took the new and reman apart and compared them both visually and mathematically .i made a drawing of all the parts and also compared them to the known bad ones. These are not complicated at all.i understand the Leave it to the profesional mentality . I was just interested in the thoroughness of the kit . I had a kit from rosewood that was several years old . This kit seems to have quite a bit more components.i kind of applaud the guy for offering the kit . Because I've been around the forums enough to know its almost taboo to mention anything other than ,full force,rosewood,or unlimited as far as injectors. I mean I have a very good engineer friend that figured out a single hpop that flows about 60 percent more than a 17 degree stock . It was also a DIY kit and uh oh he posted it up and holy cow I surprised he didn't get beat up because there are only two people on this planet who know anything about pumps.the guy who owns diesel site, and Joey from terminator. I appriciate all of the opinions I guess I'm looking for some opinions of people who have used kits from rosewood or the guy on ebay. Or any other. Just want to see how thorough they are. Not really lookin for the injector shop advertisements ya know? Like I said I'm not tryin to dis any shops I just enjoy the challenge of DIY .does anyone else?

i did a Rosewood Stage 1 kit on my old truck and it worked great.
i am actually interested in this guys stuff myself, emailed him and waiting to hear back.
i am in Canada and the time limit most shops have imposed on their core charges has been holding me back from the upgrade so these kits work well for me.
i know i can easily get a full rebuild done in a weekend and have my truck back in action by Monday, instead of having my truck down for a month + by the time i pull my injectors and send them in, going though cutoms there and back.
