The best your gonna hear all different opinions... the most reasonable are rosewoods. If it were me I would lean toward sending them to Jim just because of the price and plus I haven't anything bad about him or his injectors. However when I purchase my 250/100's they will be through full force.

Unlimited Diesel builds a good stage 1 or bump it up with a 30% nozzle without crazy.


The white/greyish/blueish smoke can be any one number of things from O rings to injectors themselves to low compression.

Dnt just assume! Do a compression test and get some numbers. If everything checks out there then pull your injectors and inspect everything.

A lot of blowby meaning you did the "oil cap test" or whatever it is or did you measure actual crank case pressure?

Ok hopefully someone with more knowledge than I will chime in as I'm not a seasoned tech but still learning as I'm sure you are to. There is always going to be blowby when you pull the cap it is just determining whether its average or excessive. I took mine down to a buddy at the Ford garage to have the actual crankcase pressure measured and it was determined that I had excessive blowby. Your best bet is to pull the glo plugs and do a compression test before you get all crazy assuming your motor is shot.

Jim, do you confirm those on the bench before shipping at that price?

Yes, that's an outstanding deal on a set of new ACs right there....:rockon: I paid $225 each for mine 4 years ago (they were run on the bench first) from an Alliant dealer locally.

If you are in the market for new injectors, do not wait on this deal...

No, these would be drop shipped to you from my supplier.
If you want them tested I can do that for a little more $$$.
I used to test all the new ones I sold, but with the "small" injectors like stock & Stage-1's they have always flowed really well out of the box.
When you bump them up to Stage-2's, Stage-3's and bigger, flow testing becomes very critical, even with new ones. Just what I have seen.

I likely paid for my testing in the injector, but yours is a smoking deal for 2012. Are they all sold now? they should be...

I watched mine being tested and they were fine out of the box.
