They wouldn't happen to be marine tips on the injectors would they? A guy I work with put 370 marine injectors in his truck and it loped like a puller when cold. The 370 marine injectors are 5x.012 with a 155 degree spray pattern instead of the 145 degree spray pattern our truck have, the wider spray pattern is what makes the marine injectors run dirtier than the proper 145* pattern injectors.

Did you ever have your current ones pop tested?

Yes

Not yet. I will once I swap these out. The new ones are set for 300 bar.

I was wrong; see below.

Different pop pressure? Sent from my DROID4 using Tapatalk

These new ones are set to 400bar. I don't know about 370s but these are SAC nozzles. Pump timing is unknown; hoping to get it checked/set this weekend. My old injectors were around 193-218 bar..

Never heard of 400 bar ...... that sounds outside spec ....... I think its listed in the manual but my understanding is 280-310 bar.

"Pods are still in the 245-250 bar range. P pump injectors are generally setup in the 260-280 bar range, VP injectors are in the 300-310 bar range."

"Most performance injectors for 12 valves seem to be set between 275-300 bar."

think this answers it for you (smokem is weston) ....

"Who said 380BAR? I would not suggest it, never seen or heard of one being set nearly that high."

Id check with your builder ........ and then validate the timing .........

around 18-21 degrees on a 12v and between 280-310 bar ...
