ok i just got my truck back. i had some jl machine 75 hp injectors put in. it deffinetly does not feel like a 75 hp gain also blows a lot of smoke. could my problem b that i just dnt have a big enough turbo? or does it take a while for the truck to get used to the new injectors? at first the truck ran pretty sluggish but after a while it went back to being smooth. also the sound from the exhaust sounds like its kind of pulsing is this normal? the rpms are at the usual spot and everything seems the same. please give me any input you have thanks

it did it bad at first then i blead the system a bit and it stopped and now it kinda does it again. the truck will shake a lil bit sometime every few seconds. not a real bad shake but enough to feel it. i think theres air in the system and i just gotta work it out. or maybe its sucking in air somewhere. i had a local diesel mechanic put them in for me due to the fact that i did not have the time to do it

When I did my granpas I forgot to pop one of the tubes out and it got nicked and the idle was like you described. It should be as smooth or smoother than stock, I would pay a visit to the installer.

After it cranks up and runs for 3o seconds or so its blead as good as its gonna get, theres not gonna be any air trapped in the lines.

It could be leaking fuel into the crankcase and thats no good. I new what the problem was as soon as we started my granpas truck and it was idling rough so I got a new tube and all was good. You might call them and ask if they had a newby installing them or what. It could also be the injector orings if they reused your old ones, also tripple check all your lines at the head.

i checked the lines to the head and they all seem to be sitting the same and they are all tight. also i talked to jon (who i bought the injectors form) and he said maybe on is loose or sitting wrong and at open throttle there is enough fuel to snot shake but when its at idle then it could be sucking in air. is there anywhere else that it could be sucking air at that i should check im not mechanic so please dumb it down for me lol thanks
