What are the specs on your turbo? Sometimes it's better to use a slightly smaller turbo for towing.
Part throttle EGTs, if I floored it I could roll the guage over. I'm not sure on the injectors, they came with the truck when I bought it. I don't think they are good injectors, the guy got them off eBay. Towing I was running 15-20 on the hill when I backed out of it. Floored empty it'll hit 40 easy at 1200*Is that part throttle egts or WOT? Do you know for sure where the timing is at? What is the size and cone angle of the injectors? How much boost? Check for boost leaks?

When I turned it down to tow the camper I backed the star wheel off quite a bit. It actually lags pretty bad below 10 psi and won't smoke at all. Before it would black intersections out and rip my arms out of their sockets.Sounds like a tunnig issue. Too much pre boost fuel? Have you tuned the afc
Holy crap I never noticed that...$2250!As an aside where if the f*** does HTT get off justifying putting a base 62/65/14 at $1750 and a 62/65/12 for $2250!! Doesn't even come with a downpipe. Man, what is this world coming to... geez
even an aurora 5000 is grossly overpriced for that price. Where did these prices come from?Holy crap I never noticed that...$2250!
Just for fun, after I read your post I looked at ATS's website...a 71mm Aurora 5000 WITH downpipe, I/C pipe and clamps/hardware is $2247. Way more turbo than a 62/65/12 and $3 left over for a coffee.
Goofy, I would try to confirm what the PO says he did. Did you know this guy?
I would check the timing, see if you can measure the turbo wheels. I would look at some different injectors, there are some great builders on this forum who could set you up nicely.
You mean the injectors from the diesel dude? (the +3 MPG rang a bell ) I had them a while back, nasty white haze at idle...I didn't much care for them, but they aren't the worst injector out there. BigBlue24 got them from me and went over them, I think he said they are 5x.012 VCO 155°.On a side note, the previous owner showed me a link to the injectors he put in it. They are reman and give no specifics to the nozzles, so I'm not feeling too confident in the quality. The ad is on eBay, says 3 mpg gain and good for 400 hp with no smoke. Mine smokes all the time... Cold at idle is terrible.
°BTW, thanks blacksmoke83. I creeped some of your posts and learned how to do the degree sign.° (shift/alt/8 on my Mac or hold alt+248) Looks better than using the little butthole thing. *
