I need new secondary injectors for my car. Can I upgrade them to 1300cc or something bigger on the stock computer? What can I upgrade to on the stock fuel rail? I tried to search around for this, but I didn't find anything.
i have a "stock based" ecu and you can not according to this hread, and NOT ONE PERSON ON HERE (to date) can answer my last question aout uing fuel that is unused already to allow for more boost past 14.7lb
From what I've gather, the secondaries are 850cc, so say at 50% they're flowing 425cc worth of fuel. As far as the computer knows, that's what you need. If you put in like 1200cc injectors, the computer doesn't know that. So, at 50% they'll be flowing 600cc worth of fuel when the computer thinks it's flowing 425cc worth. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
You got it. The ECU just blindly uses the values from the fuel map, which are essentially duty cycle values like 10% (they are really pulse widths, but that is just a different representation of the same information). If you double the size of the injectors, you will get double the fuel.
It is possible to get the car running (but never running well) with bigger injectors and electronic gizmos piggy-backed onto the stock ECU, but I just think that is a big waste of time. You'll spend lots of time tuning and it will never be right. Your car will have bad drivability and you'll hate it. These cars are complicated enough to get running correctly that it just doesn't make any sense to me to hobble together a Rube-Goldberg engine control system. You'll never be happy with it that way, so save yourself the trouble and just get a PowerFC, Haltech, or AEM computer to begin with.
Or if you aren't shooting for 360+ RWHP and want to save some cash, keep using the stock injectors and buy a used "purple box" from someone. You can even up the fuel pressure a bit without any problems if you think you will be pushing the limit of the stock injectors.
Ok then how about less cc injectors like 900 cc, shane racing sells these injectors. Can these be used without any porblems?maxcooper, I know it's not goona dump alot of fuel because it's only 50 cc more? btw I am not shooting for high hp. khris
why would you bother only adding 50 cc? You don't need larger injectors if you haven't modified your car to the point where you REQUIRE an aftermarket ecu. Why are you trying to spend lots of money on something you don't need yet?
Besides, once you add larger injectors, you also need a higher flowing fuel pump and possibly other things (rising rate pressure regulator). You are not at that upgrading stage yet.
Do intake, downpipe, exhaust, ecu, fuel pump, intercooler, limit to 12 psi. THEN, consider upgrading your fuel injection system.
Some time ago someone posted a place to get the blue top Bosch 850 cc primaries and 1600 cc secondaries for less than what RP is selling them for. K2RD has them as well but someone told me that you can get them at any GM parts dealer because they are OE injectors on some GM car/truck and they only sell for $70 or $80 bucks each v.s the $150 and $300+ that others are selling them for.
If any of you guys have info on this one please re-post all the details on this one ..when, where, who and how much.
