2007 5.9 injector help needed

I think my injectors are failing on my 2007 mega cab. The truck has the 5.9 with a bully dog tripple programmer. I am looking to buy injectors and kind of make an upgrade at the same time. Whats the best for the buck? Also do I need to replace the nozzles as well? Thanks in advance for the help.

look into II's nozzles if you get stock injectors, but if you want a stage 2 injector i would go with II's 60hp over kit kinda pricey but cant beat the quality and performance and you can reman if you want to save a buck or two.

Why do you think they're failing? What symptoms are you seeing?

Good call, what budget do you have? If you're talking about getting higher flow nozzles, you'll probably need other mods to support it unless you just want to make black smoke all the time and have poor power output. Fill out your signature so we know what we're working with here.

Depends on your objectives and total budget and other supporting mods already installed. If you're talking about upgrading injectors, you'll either buy new/reman injectors and swap nozzles or buy a set that include the upgraded nozzles.

well, I have 2 codes : P2149/ and P0206

I have the trouble shooting sheets that came from ALLDATA for those codes

P0206- Injector #6 Control Circuit
P2149-Bank 2 (cylinders 4-6) Shorted High or Low

I have not done any of the electrical trouble shooting ( had had a plate put in my ankle 2 weeks ago from a ATV race accident). The truck will start, but there is no power, and before this it would drive but had still no power and was pouring smoke.

I dont wanna get crazy with the upgrades, just something modest. I use the truck for pulling the sleds up north and other things all over. So I want this truck to stay reliable. My brother built the trans for me, so I know that any power I put to it, it shouldnt have a problem there.

Those codes can be as simple as a busted wire in the wiring harness... but not always/usually.

I'd say unless you're either gung-ho about doing some upgrades or the injectors have a ton of miles on them, do your electrical diagnostics first (when able) and dream and research in the meantime.

Please do fill out your signature though (User CP on the black bar near the top near the center, then "Edit Signature" on the left side) to let us know what you already have.

You running auto or manual?

You should also take the Bully Dog out of the system to make sure it isnt a problem with it causing the issues. It could be a broken wire, bad connection or an injector problem. Do you run a fuel addative? Sometimes if you have a sticky injector this can help them as well.

The reason I ask is because you'll need upgrades in the transmission if you want to get a little more powerful. Manual owners have it easier, they can upgrade their clutch. You automatic guys have it a little rougher, you can put some power thru the stock setup, but a hair too much and hair too often, and you'll be looking at an unexpected and sudden repair bill. Better to budget ahead and get it done right.

I totally agree with Pat@BD too, pull the tuner out of the system and see if the problem goes away. Also check all connections and make sure there's no corrosion on the harness plugs and stuff while you're at it. Sometimes it can be a simple bad connection, sometimes it can be a simple chafed/broken wire, sometimes it can really mean an expensive repair.

I tried to update my sidnature, but it may not have worked... I have the trans built, pretty much every uprade I could do to that thing at about 45k on it. My older brother has a trans shop, so I have that advantage to my automatic.

Thanks for the help guys. I am getting my staples out tomarrow, but I will still have a cast on. Its only been about 3 weeks since the surgery, so I dont really wanna climb around under the hood yet..
