I am running the 155/30% with their tunes. Like them so far. Tunes are ok. i liked my tunes from KEM better. But thats mainly just they way they tune the trans. No smoke with them either but i think they have them defuled a little since i dont have head studs but the tunes came free with the injectors (not free from RCD but builder paid for them since he took an extra 2 weeks on my truck) so i figured i would try them.
You have a ton of fuel pulled if you're on a stock charger and 155's with no smoke. Stock injectors will smoke pretty good with a hot fueled tune. I'll give you props for that though. No point over-fueling the stock turbo, but I'm sure you could get a little more out of that bumping the tunes up.
Dkapp, you're just going to have to make the call if you want to send in your 8 to be built, or buy 8 new (always recommended) and have those built...
well im preatty sure i got a couple dead injectors. its got a preatty good rock to it at idle. and especially when its in drive with the foot on the brake you can really feel and at 1500 rpms with a load on it like going up a hill it shakes really bad. like if i got something in the pull out cup holder it almost bounces out.
so im willing to pay the little bit extra for brand new ones and if im doing that im going to go a little over stock. a little smoke is always cool. i dont want to look like a redneck farmer blowing smoke at every stoplight thinking "im such a bad *** hilbilly in my diesel pickem up truck"
just a little smoke when i want it is enough for me
You can get that little smoke you seek with stock injectors and tunes man... 155's are still a good all around injector, but without adding some more air to it, you're either going to have fuel pulled out of the tunes (why bother getting larger injectors then?), or a smoky truck that EGT's will climb in a hurry on... I would suggest something like a MTW hybrid turbo.
i have been throwing around the idea of upgrading the wheels in my stock turbo. i need to take it apart to clean the vanes anyways. mine stick so dam bad. if i build a lot of boost and the releive it, it doesnt build boost unless i go back to idle then get on it again
You can send your stocker in and have him upgrade it to the hybrid or the stage 1 or something. I think I'm going with a stage 1 setup myself. My turbo needs a rebuild anyways, and I just picked up a stock LLY compressor wheel for nothing! Adrian said he'd put in the turbo rebuild kit (I would supply it) and mod mine with this wheel to a stage 1 for $375!... not too shabby.
