Then you have a molested injector and that usually does not end well. Trying to do injectors on the cheap is just not a good idea, the landscape is littered with the remains of those efforts.
How is it any different?
Exergy buys Bosch ones and enlarges them.

Unless I'm missing something

Quick question how did you determine “I had an injector go”. I’m concerned with 133,000 mi on 2006 as well.. I would appreciate your input.. thanks

It developed a slight knock. I had one go last year but it was the solenoid. This seems to be a dying injector. That's why I'm going to just replace them all.

Spoke with exergy. It's about $500 cheaper to buy stock Bosch ones and send them to exergy to enlarge and balance instead buying them from exergy.

Diesel Comfort Start small. A boost fooler will do most of what you want and not put you at any increased risk.
Next put in a shift kit to fix the shifting under load.
After that more air will do more than injectors-I used towing twins.
Now that you have more air add 90 injectors and put in a solid flex plate and consider built tranny.
Now you can consider race twins ungrade and need billet pieces in trans.
*Each step increases power. Each power step comes with more FUN and more WEAR. The more FUN, the more WEAR so BEWARE!!
Be safe, increase as pocket book allows, have FUN!!!

That's a solid build right there. Should be good for many many carefree miles.

With only 0.5 bbi I think he should go 362.

In my opinion the 363sxe is a useless turbo. It flows less than 5 lb/min (some places site it as only 0.5 more, hard to read the edge of the map) over the 362, at a lower pr and efficiency.

Which means if you go with the 363 over the 362 then max hp potential gain is only 4-40 using the 8hp/lb rule of thumb. But due to the decrease in efficiency you gain about 44 outlet temperature at 40psig. And with a larger wheel it will inherently spool slower.

I agree with a 362 with bbi .5s. Just because I think u need more injector. but as for putting down the 363, I disagree. All of that stuff sounds good on paper but my experience the 363 and 362 spool damn near identical. And the 363 has greater potential (future compounds or just peek hp) regardless of a possible slight efficiency loss.

Worked wonders.



I'm just trying to justify spending the extra 1300 on bigger ones over just putting new Bosch ones in. I'm either going exergy 30% or stock Bosch.
Will there any major downside to running the 30% on my setup until I get a new turbo?
My plan was turbo then injectors but plans changed when the Injector went out.

Haze isn't bad, I just don't want to be rolling coal everywhere I go.
Cold air for power, hot air for mpg, cold fuel period... Tune in cold weather. Dial it in as temps heat up... I did this recently and results are awesome for what i use my truck for... Daily driving... Just now attempting to get it fine tuned with smoke table

I'll have to check out those new injectors. I've had bad luck with remans. So I'm definitely going new. So I guess the question is if I get them with nozzles or put them on myself.

After more research I'm going to do 30/33% ones.

A better intercooler and pipe will help overall with everything. Power is in air density not boost. Make more power with less throttle keeps everything happy.

As far as custom tunes. That might be down the road. For now I'll stick with the banks. Like I said not going for crazy power. Just a good all around truck. 450-500whp is max for my goals.
Upgrade/Rebuild that trans, get efilive. And youre done. No injectors needed. If u must get injectors, go with bbi. If u just want stock new bosch, 2000$ from injectors direct. I wouldnt put nozzles on new bodies, not worth it.

I just recently went thru all this and came from the same turbo 4cyl background. Welcome to the forum.

GRUNT 11B Guys do run water meth systems in their pickups. I haven't really looked into them that much because i don't have a use for one. The horror stories (not that it's common) of them leaking causing hydro lock doesn't make me want one want more. But i guess you could always put a manual shut off valve in the line

The injectors are the heart of the engine. They can make it run great or destroy an engine pretty quick. Injectors are not something you should go cheap on.

30% overs will be fine with a stock turbo. Tuning will play a bigger role then a turbo when it comes to how clean it runs.
