DIY injectors

While researching injectors, I came across www.diy-injectors.com. They have some good prices just wondered if anyone has done this and what kind of results they had and how difficult it was to modify your own injectors? I want to modify my AD splits into stage 2 singles.

Re: DIY injectors

I believe Gregrob got his injector parts from Rosewood, you might want to talk to him. I think he also had a bunch of pictures when he swapped the parts.

It's not really all that hard to take the injectors apart and reassemble them. It just like a big puzzle, just put the pieces in where they fit and then simply install. Biggest thing is to keep everything very clean.

Re: DIY injectors

Fire away with the questions

Converting your AD's to single stage 2's will cost a little more because you'll be paying for plungers and barrels, and nozzles.

If I were you I would skip the "Stage 2's" which would mean skipping the larger nozzles and keeping them stock.

Rather than a typical stage 2 (160cc) I decided to 180cc and keep the stock nozzle. Safer, IMO, on PMRs.

Re: DIY injectors

As long as there are absolutly no issues or worn parts with your injectors you will likely be successful with them. There is a little more to it than "just put the pieces in where they fit and then simply install." There are parts that have to be put together properly and in the right order and need special tools to align properly. If you have any nozzles that are out of ballance there is absolutly no way to really be able to tell with out flow testing them which requires a flow bench. If you are confident in your mechanical ability and aptitude then it can be done. If you want to know that they are done correctly and have been tested for functionality and ballance have a fuel shop do them.

Re: DIY injectors

Yep, just like I said, put all the pieces in where they belong and it'll work fine. Then you simply install them into the truck. Sorry if you find that so complicated.

As for the nozzles, it'd be best to have a set of nozzles done by someplace like DDP. However I'm thinking his nozzes have been working without being matched for the life of the truck and they'll continue to do so if he wants. It's not the best, but it will work just fine.

Re: DIY injectors

Thanks that is the info I was looking for.. I did the DIY Stealth and didn't have a problem so I think I can probably handle this.. Curious how a stage 2 160cc singles work with my mods?

I think they'll work great if it doesn't blow up.

I don't recommend big nozzles on PMRs
