I will say I've been working quite a bit on tuning, and have learned ALOT. These sac injectors require pilot changes imo. I tried adjusting the pulse and timing tables all over the place, but until I...

Yes, bad nozzles can cause blue smoke from a diesel. High return rates can cause a hard or no start as well as a hung injector staying open. I started to roll the dice on nozzles as mine had 71K...

Where at? At idle I have found they flow slightly less fuel than a stock vco, but that quickly changes as pressure goes beyond 40mpa. I only have the basic flow sheet on a set which says at 160mpa...

I'm running nearly smokeless, far less smoke now than with stock injectors. I'm beyond ocd about my tuning, so I'll be ironing it out for the next year or so until I'm somewhat happy with it. I know...

Off idle they do inject more fuel in the same amount of time. The thing is though the engine at least at idle doesn't care how big the injectors are. It takes X amount of fuel at idle to run the...

Doesn't matter what size injector you run, it still takes roughly 8MM3 of fuel at idle to make a DURAMAX engine idle at 680RPM's. The larger injector injects the same amount of fuel in a shorter...

I've had to add fuel at idle to mine to get it where it should be. Stock tuning is NOT your friend with them. I'm still ironing out my pulse tables, but these things LIKE timing. Both main and pilot...

If running stock tuning, then stock replacements, if you're tuned then the sac's seem to be a nice improvement. I actually haven't been able to drive mine much since I did them, but they will take...

7 with a wave plate, smoked em right down to the metal. I've ran a 3100 PW in it before, but I did not care for the smoke. I try to tune by example, I keep all of my tunes I've done for others clean,...

I did. 2250 was all I ran because anymore and it hazed. I strive to keep mine as clean as possible for daily useage. It pulled surprisingly strong for no more fuel than I was giving it. And I had...

Yep, thats what I figured. Even with boost being down some, it's pulling as hard or harder, and is smokeless doing it now.

I had to bump the idle timing to clear up the fuel smell at idle. Going to an lly rail pressure(change the 30 cells to 35 in the idle areas) and timing tables cleared up most all the part throttle...

What threw me compared to tuning VCO's was that I had to add pulsewidth down low. I've tuned a few with VCO's, so I was already expecting some haze and what not, but they respond COMPLETELY...

Figuring out the tuning is a bit of a learning curve to say the least compared to vco nozzles. The biggest thing that blows me away is that I'm now spooling my turbo down at 1500-1600 rpm's just...

Mine is my hip, but 15 years of working(after the drs told me not to, but I couldn't bring myself to sit at home and listen to them) with hip and shoulder problems has now caused my sciatic problems.
