STAGE III HYBRIDS & BROKEN RODS

Need some advice im looking at injectors and heavily considering Hybrids due to "Not needing Dual or Larger HPOP" what is everyone's advice on this matter I looking at something in the 200-250 range. And who's stage III would you purchase. I do plan on getting a HPOP setup later but dont want to sacrifice my ability to use my truck till I can afford one. But the other question is are my rods in the danger zone with this set up if I do opt for these injectors. My current truck set up is listed in my signature thanks for your help.

Re: STAGE III HYBRIDS & BROKEN RODS

It is a good debate..... Just keep the tuning reasonable and not over torque the hell out of the motor and you should be okay. You won't be in the "danger zone" but it is still a crap shoot.... I did a PMR truck with 238cc and 80% nozzles and just kept the torque down and was able to peak the power around 3000 rpms. Probably around 425 HP but still safe IMO.

Re: STAGE III HYBRIDS & BROKEN RODS

Do you think that TN he has listed in his signature is going to like those hybrids?
I know mine hates it above 25psi.- 35psi.
Just has no more pull up there.

Re: STAGE III HYBRIDS & BROKEN RODS

I was making over 40psi with my TN BB... with jodys tunes...


To the OP, keep the tuning sane and you should be fine. There is always a chance, even with billet rods something is going to happen. I ran hybrids and PMRs for about 25k with no issues.

Re: STAGE III HYBRIDS & BROKEN RODS

Is that a BB TN, if it runs out of steam up top it is probably a JB with the .84 housing, No?

Re: STAGE III HYBRIDS & BROKEN RODS

Well sorry guess I should have said this it is not a BB TN to clear that up. And am I going to have to have my chip redone with the new injectors you guys are a lot of help on here thanks again for your time.

Re: STAGE III HYBRIDS & BROKEN RODS

If you're worried about rods leave it stock. If you're worried about rods and injectors, refer to the first sentence in my post.

If you have PMR's you're GREATLY increasing your risk once you do anything above stock injectors. No matter what.

Is it worth popping an engine and rodding a block? To me, no. To you it might be different.

mild tunes on this truck and boost is not a measure of power. I can make a 38r make 38 or 32 lbs of boost and both tunes are within 5hp of each other....

I understand that boost is not a measure of power... I was stating that there is no point at which that turbo stops making boost, I had it up to 50psi before... It was stupid hot, but it would do it.
