I'm considering injectors and the rosewood stage one rebuilds look great. Anyone have them or anyone know anything about them? Thanks!

What did you tune it with. Is there specific tunes to maximize efficiency? Also, what was the total bill from getting them done?

custom tunes he means, have TW, PHP, DP, and others of the like, you will get a lot of power out of it too, good luck with your choice on tuner and i've heard great things about rosewood's sticks, not a bad thing yet, i wanna go with him when i finally get funding to do mine

Let me know how they do for you. I want to get the set in my truck rebuilt to stage 1s, but they have 284,000 miles on them and I know they will cost close to the premium rebuild price

He was very outgoing on the phone and very helpfull but I think he was suprised when a 16 year old came to have them rebuilt. Believe it or not, there actually are kids out there that are more into their trucks then drugs or other bs coming into schools now!

Well I had the full 1235 for premium set aside for a just in case and he had to replace two barrels that were slightly scored which he replaced with a few he had in good condition. He also had to replace a solenoid and the total was $590 but I payed cash so I got them for $550. More then happy!

Well i finally got them In and running. The valve cover was the hardest part. Well i forgot to crank with glow plugs removed, had to take it apart again. the one fuel injector harness was melted too.Well when we got the truck to start, white smoke was across about a quarter acre. My truck goes 0-60 in less then half the time it did before, both on stock mode. And for all of you smokers, punch it in 100hp tune and you will clear an intersection. Definatly worth the money, even if they were 1235, and that's coming from a low income family. Just wish I didn't have as many problems putting the valve cover on. I did valve cover gaskets too which were 67.99 for one.

There is fuel/oil in the cylinder that hydro locks the engine if not removed. You get it out by cramming while harness isn't plugged into the valve cover gasket and beyond. Put valve cover back on and basically everything in the cylinder will shoot out of the glow plug holes and drain into the block.I cranked like that for about 4 20 second cranks. The way to check that everything is out is by plugging the glow plug back into the hole and there will be a little surface oil on it from it gathering around the hole but it should not have a level on it. If it does keep them out and crank for a little more with glow plugs out. once thats done plug everything back in and start cramming, you should be ready to go.
