05 question : nozzles or injectors?

695 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  mudwisr2
I just bought an 05 and I have heard that some of these trucks have injector issues. The engine is stock. Would a set of nozzles correct the reliabilitly issue or do you have to do a complete injector swap? I would be putting a set of 50 HP nozzles/injectors if I did anything just for reliability and mileage.
Truck has 5" turbo back and a K&N cold air system on it with outer prefilter

No you can just do nozzles. Filtration is SUPER important. Get a 2 micron filter and your injectors will be happy.
There are several way to test injectors. Check your oil level, smell the oil, and listen for a tick in the exhauset. But if it were me, I'd just look into a small tuner with timing, no pressure. But as far as making them reliable, filtration and no pressure seem to be the winning combo.
