doh!

Well I had created what I thought should be a pretty reliable dummy proof setup for my truck, but I missed being on the edge, so I bought a set of BD Injectors. I am going to leave them stock besides changing nozzles, but I'm thinking the truck will run a little different now. I am going to have them tuned down some, but there should still be a lot more fuel there than with the stage 2's.
I think there are quite a few people running these injectors nowdays... any advice on keeping a stock motor besides headstuds together? I didn't do much to the new motor because the plan was to stay with the stage 2's as a permanent setup that didn't last long. setup is in sig.

Re: doh!

Keeping a stock motor together is all about tuning. But I thought Hybrids where better and safer than B codes? But I could be wrong.

Re: doh!

i would talk to Joey- Terminator Engineering . he could give you some pointers. with the proper tuning you can make those b's run like those stageII's did. talk with Jdub he is running B's as well.

Re: doh!

Whoops. I forgot to write down that I was mostly curious about the top end- what most people think about the necessity of valve springs and pushrods at this point. I talked to Jody about tuning before I bought the injectors and he already as plans for driveability and making the bottom end live, so I am not worried about that. Would those who have already run these injectors reccomend I take the time and spend the money for valve springs and pushrods at this point?

That very well could be true. I got my B codes for a pretty good price, that is the main reason I bought them. I also liked the idea of a mostly unmodified injector because I have had terrible luck with injectors so far.
