Hey has any body run the swamps stage 2 split shots? If so what'd you think.
Aside from you being able to run just fine without tunes, is there any real advantages or disadvantages when compared to like a similar-ish sized single shot, like a 160/100?
They oil hungry. I don't know why anyone would run them.
our Stage 2 splits don't require any more HPOil than a stock AD injector..however...split shot injectors do
require more HPOil than an equivalently sized single shot.
Regardless, the maximum HPOil volume required to 'empty' any injector is only
going to be an issue IF you are in
a race/extreme type chip program/tune...annnnnnd
you(re right foot is) requesting full fuel of the injector.
Prior to selling this injector, I personally drove & tuned our Stage2 splits...and was actually pleasantly surprised at A) how quiet they were and B) how well they ran and C) how well they ran with no tune or programming at all.
An injector similar to our Stage 2 splits would actually be a stage 1 single sot (our AC's, or our 175/146 singles); the 'whole reason' for the Stage2 split injector is the market requested an injector that would work without
There are a lot of guys/girls out there that just simply want or had already purchased an off the shelf chip or programmer (or no chip at all)...
so the slightly higher price of the single shot injectors...coupled
with the added expense of a custom tuned chip...coupled
with the financial loss with having to ditch their 'off the shelf' chip/programmer...simply make the Stage2 split shot injectors a viable option for a large portion of this community.
Is it my favorite
or the most powerful
injector? no, nor is it manufactured or marketed to be.
Is it an injector that you can literally toss into an otherwise bone stock
truck and roll on down the highway? yes...absolutely.
We would not sell, manufacture, or even offer an injector that wasn't 'good & reliable'...or at least offer some advantage compared to 'stock'...
it's not a 'hot rod' injector..it's simply a good option for someone who wants 'more than stock'..but doesn't want to dik with custom tuning. No more, no less.
Personally, I much rather prefer the efficiency of our 175/146 single shot injectors (as a close comparison to the Stage2 splits)...the peak power is going to be almost identical (with a chip maxed out)...but there are guys/girls out there that need
an injector to work with their XYZ brand tuner...or no tuner at all.
The 160/100 injector we build, referenced earlier, is capable of much more peak power, but will absolutely require custom chip tuning. But then..we can go & compare a 200/30 to a 160/100..etc, etc, etc...200's actually using less HPOil
than a 160/100 non-hybrid, much smaller nozzle for efficiency in a non-race tune.
that's why we make more than 'one' injector, and why we try to take time to explain the benefits & compromises of each.
generally, injector choice boils down to a customers' application
...not so much peak power, in a race tune...with their foot to the floor.
