Default Finally broke down and took truck in...

I haven't driven my truck since last spring.
After I put the 330/150 injectors in, along with the 6-phase FICM, and ficm tuner...the truck was taken out for a test rip.
Bounced off the rev limiter through 3 gears in two wheel drive, (should have known better than to leave it in 2wd when fartin around.) and when I came to the stop sign, the truck had a definite "miss", as the truck was shaking at an idle.

So I had Eric send tunes for these injectors, Jesse, and someone else who's name I can't remember right now.

None of them shift correctly...they all seem to get to about 2000rpm, and lockup in each gear. No downshifting unless you come to a complete stop.
No power...just smoke.

So today, after waiting a little over a year to find the time to work on the engine, I took it to a shop to do a couple tests. Compression, and injector testing.

The whole year was spent working on the interior, and stereo system...and I didn't want to start ripping into the engine, with sawdust all over everything.

I tell ya...I'm to the point where I'm tired of working on it.
I honestly thought after I'm done the stereo, the truck was done...only other thing was going to be a new paint job...but at least I could drive it, and not have to wrench on it anymore.
The the test drive happened, and it pretty much pulled the carpet out from under me.

Hope they find something easy.

If it's an injector, they will be for sale.
Cost was over $3200.00 with new solenoids, and spool valves.
I want my 285/100 conventionals back. Lol

Yeah, I know...I remember those days.
But right now....not so much.

Both times I have tried a 150% nozzle, I hated them...too much smoke for me.

It's impossible to find a tuner anywheres close to me to do any "Live" tuning...and I can't drive 24hours to have it done...the smog tickets alone would probably pay for airline tickets to fly a tuner up to Canada.

Well....no call from the shop today.
I asked for it to be parked inside if it had to sleep over.
And tonight, we are getting crappy rain, wind, lightning, and still possible hail...

Hope they say it's down on compression on two cylinders, and has two or three bad injectors...cuz that's what it's performing like...and at least I will know I can start to tear it down. Have a new DFC 0.020" over block, DPC converter, and Straub cam to slide in.
.....nuff messin round...

Call came in from the shop this morning.

Injectors #5 & #7 are dead.

Compression is down on cylinder #5 as well....325 lbs.
But #5 is the hole that I had an injector tip break off about 4 or 5 years ago.

Anyone know what "good" compression should be?

I will be pulling these injectors out at some point soon...
Deciding on what to do....swap out the 150 nozzles to 100's, or go back to conventionals.
