I need information

I have just installed 190cc injectors into my 04 f250 and I see online that most folks are saying they are not for towing, is this accurate?
I have numerous mods to my truck and thought this would help for the 12k trailer I tow. Any information is appreciated.

Thanks,

Rick

My 2004 F250 6.0 FX4 truck mods are:
Bulletproof cooler bypass and remote filter system.
Banks Techni-cooler system
Airdog II 165
Airlift 5000 all the way around
Fluid Damper
ARP Head studs
Black Onyx Gaskets
SCT Custom Tunes by Eric
58v FICM Flashed by Eric
DFuser coolant filter system
Ion Wheels with 285/75/16 with Nitto's

Are you running 190's on the stock turbo?

The stocker is going to fall short, even a Powermax (Stage 1) isn't going to move enough air for those. For towing, you should be able to get your tuner to defuel them down to say a 175cc equivilant, and be ok with 12K behind you, but you'll still need to move more air.

155's would have been a much better combo for towing..plus the Powermax. Hope you can turn it down enough..but get a Turbo..

Thanks for the information Mudrunningpig. I am running a powermax turbo and still am concerned about the et's. My grandson is a diesel mechanic at the shop that does my work and can change the 190's for 155's.

I thank you for the info and will let you know how the 155's workout.
