Mine is still running great, though the truck is doing more short trips lately, and not racking up the miles like before. I'll update the full set of data next spring sometime. For now, my subjective...

The SAC injectors do a lot better with a tune for them. They can take some tweaking to get the idle back where it should be and to prevent the throttle from being too much on/off. THEFERMANATOR has...

Mine are still running same as last update. When I get a bunch more miles on them I'll do another formal update, or of course if something goes wrong. But for now, no news is good news.

Yep, I believe this is the case!

They aren't the stock LLY nozzles, they are new Bosch Motorsports nozzles, as Yellow Jacket said. So the nozzles are more expensive than stock parts would be (the...

I'm doing another long trip around the 13th, I'll grab all the logs and post an update after that.

Subjectively, everything seems great with the injectors. I'm also curious what the data shows.

Probably only 1000 or so miles since last time. Since I still don't have a heater (new core is sitting in the garage, I'm just busy/lazy) I only drive it when towing or hauling something. From what I...

I put a decent amount of miles on this summer going camping and the like, but didn't record all the detailed diags yet. And since my heater core is leaking and I bypassed it, I haven't been driving...

Injector noise is WAY quieter. Still louder than a stock LB7, but at least 1/3 quieter than the...

I bought the injectors used from a guy who said they only had a few sled pulls on them, and he went to something bigger. I built my motor, and ran them for 1,445 miles, then had to tear my SoCal...
