7.3 Injector install

Hey guys! got the injectors in well 7 of them. Last one I decided to wait and get a few opinions.

on a few of my injectors after I did the sleeve a little locktite ran down into the cup. I cleaned them out the best I could and put the injectors in, dont think it will cause a problem.


but my last injector #7 cylinder there is more loctite, i cleaned it out pretty well, but there is still a residue on the wall of the cup were it ran down. I dont think it will cause an issue, but I just want to make sure I didnt F*## up before I put everything together.

tunning and new glowplugs (old ones that i took out were autolight o.o, came out fine though and one was even dead )

pumped to get this thing going again. Just nervous that I messed something up, considering I did cups and injectors. but everything seemed to go smoothly

thanks guys!

Guys, got the injectors in....truck seems to run decent, starts hard so im sure I still have air in the HPO


biggest things Ive noticed...

-Rough idle
-less low end torque

Also I havn't turned the tuner way up yet, but even on daily im not noticing that much more power, and not much more boost or anything.

Smoke output is actually less then it was, maybe the custom tunes are really good? but I find it hard to believe stage 2's with a stock turbo not smoking at all....I hate smoke, but its just an observation ive noticed.

Thanks guys!
