I'm thinking of upgrading the stock turbo to a performance turbo while maintaining the stock fuel injectors and reconfiguring the computer with a Banks Six Gun or a Edge CTS Evolution w/Juice & Attitude (granted if Edge ever gets an Executive Order in California for that system).. Now my question is semi technical though I trust I'll get a lot of great responses in my quest to making a smog legal Performance Powerstroke. Incase some are confused as to why I wanted to make sure my truck is still smog legal it's because I live in Santa Cruz, California. Yeah I know it royally sucks to smog my truck and the state just had to start doing that the year I got my truck. ARGH!!!!
Anyways back on to the question.. Will I be able to run an Industrial Injection Hybrid Stage 1 or a Powermaxx Turbo while utilizing the stock injectors and not trip any of the emissions sensors causing my truck to be deemed no longer legal?
Further more I've heard of this company called Bigg Dogg Diesel through powerstrokehelp's youtube video which I'll post a link to it shortly, but apparently they make a 59mm turbo and stated that you have the option of doing or not doing fuel injector upgrades.
If you guys can help me out here let me know which turbo would be my best bet let me know.
