I just installed a set of 150 and the truck runs perfect. The only problem is that when I checked the oil it seemed higher than the last time I checked it, about a week before the injectors. I tried smelling the oil and I can smell any fuel and I put a few drops on a paper towel and I cant see the ring on the outside that they say you can see if you have fuel in the oil. Am I missing something, is it all in my head, or is there something else I can check. Thanks guys

Yup. It ain't fun. Replace the o-rings on the injectors and connector tubes and use vaseline on them before you pop them back in. It took me a long time to figure out where my problem was coming from. Also, make sure the connector tubes are seated in the injector and that there are no knicks or burs on them.

Should I mark the stick and run it for like a week and see if the level goes up. I only put about 100 miles a week on it

Yup. Mine was easy to spot. 1qt every 200 miles and anything over 15psi of boost or half throttle and it would spew oil out of the blow by tube. I'll bet it was an interesting sight being behind me when I went to pass someone. :lol3:
