I'm here to eat CROW!
Many have heard my endless rants about nozzle hole size and 7.3 performance on tds. Ultimately I know that the math works but somewhere between theory and practice it all went to hell. Maybe it was execution on my part or the myriad other parts of the equation such as my use of outside vendors. Either way it was an important lesson in theory vs. real world for me.
Never-the-less after 2+ years of beating my head against the wall w/ a truck that makes vastly more hp/ runs much better when I put stock AD injectors in it than it does w/ my hopped up, modified for better internal flow, small nozzle having BDs I've decided to "join 'em."
Specifically DI and crew will be the group I'll be joining. After a trip down to DI on Saturday confirmed that my "set-up" was hopeless and a quick ride/ reminder of what a properly running 7.3 should run like when it is set up correctly ("here, hold my pink drink and watch this") I've decided to do EXACTLY what David instructs me to do.
David has already got full control of my injectors and they are getting exactly what he tells the injector builder to put in them. And that includes huge .012" nozzles!!! Hey, the ride in Amanda's truck and the #'s that Thuggy, Imelmo, etc are putting out makes it clear that this set up works and works well. I'll also be going to DI programming (nothing against DP
at all, it is just I want a combo from a single vendor) as well as likely switching turbos to exactly what David asks for.
So I'm here to eat crow.
PS. For one last stand for small nozzles I'll remind everyone what Charlie is doing w/ small nozzles and I want to say that before my BDs were modified & my truck broke, my truck felt approximately as fast as what Amandas truck felt like.
