What is it about larger injectors that causes a lopey idle?

Its in the tuning, lope idle on a 6.0 doesnt really exist if your talking about RCD lope idle its cause they made it that way.

I'm not talking about a lope idle that is specifically designed into a tune. I'm talking about the instances where folks have installed larger injectors, and as a result of the larger injectors, you now have a lopey idle.

Only way I've seen a lopey idle on a superduty is from the tune. You can't really run bigger sticks without a tune right?

Sounds to me like a bad injector. That is the only way I have seen a lope after bigger injector install without the lope tune. Or improper install.

Occasionally something in the tune causes a little problem with mass fuel desired at idle. When mass fuel desired drops below a certain point it goes into a fuel cut injector off scenario. Kinda like when you let off the truck and you hear it go silent. But it's doing it over and over.

Like said above you wont get a lope idle on a 6.0 just by getting injectors, also you cant run your truck without tuning exspecially on a 6.0. Like doug said it could be other things as well.

I wondered the same thing. When you go to big diesel truck pulls some of the trucks sit there and smoke then sound like they have a huge cam in them.

Early original 03 flashes with LARGE injectors will lope slightly..especially on a cold start...otherwise its tune only on a 6.0
Hmmmmmm I wonder if this is why mine has a slight lope but runs well.

So i guess i'll bring this back a year later. So what do you think if when i start it cold she acts like she caughs alittle. Then when i drive and shes still cold it shakes like a son of a b!tch till she gets warm. and when i let off you can hear the motor skip a few times. Bad injector? or big injectors? Also did this before and after having it tuned..

lol it gets old man. it doesnt sound like a lope tune at all. you would be better off with a well known brand like casserly or elite.
