ok guys thanks for the input...even though I didn't get to see it all till now haha
I called gary this morning and we talked for about 20 mins doing some theory, with what we came up with I did some testing with a mechanical gauge to see what was happening.
before I had even gotten to test the pressures Gary called me back and told me that if I found the pump to be the issue he would get me a loaner to get me going for this week as I have a pull on Saturday. I must say I am very impressed with stealth and their product support, Gary is an excellent guy to talk to and will do all he can to help you out.
so back on topic, I foung icp
to be 3300-3500 when it was "stumbling" so I tried different things to further determine what was happening. finally I unplugged the icp
sensor and took it for a drive, truck ran excellent and peak pressure was 2500psi since it was limited to factory default...at 2500 psi
the needle held solid no matter what. I am very impressed with this pump and with my diagnostic work I had determined that my tuning is the issue. as before I had stock pump and tunes were set to run a high duty cycle which is now causing this large pump to make too much pressure for the injector to handle. so my next step is sending a chip to get tuned to further get things dialed in. and as of now worst case scenario I can simply unplug my icp
to pull as it will hold a steady 2500 psi
Thanks again guys for the input, im relieved to have found the problem so easily. next will be bigger injectors that will utilize all that oil!!!
