Injector Install, AFC mods

This weekend I am hoping to get my 215 injectors installed in my truck. I printed off the instructions that are posted in the forum but does anyone have any other little tips or tricks for me. As for the AFC Mods.....I have taken mine off and I gound the cylinder part down some so it will open up fully but I have been reading on here that I should grind the taper on the foot flat. I can do that but when i do where should I adjust the smoke screw? Right now I have it almost all the way in IIRC so that it gets more fuel down low. I set the star wheel with the air compressor so it moves the foot back halfway at 20psi and it's full travel at 40psi.....should I lower that a bit since 40 psi is the max boost I have seen. I'm not gonna do much else until i can afford to get a new converter and VB then I'll get a bigger turbo and some DV's and maybe 370's. My goal is 500hp and 1000ftlbs for my DD Cummins.

I'm not sure what the instructions said but I used a lugnut and threaded it into the longest bolt i could find w/ the right threads. Then I used another really big nut as a slider and went to town. Worked really well. You can also thread the lugnut on and pry it up but I didn't like how it pulled to the side.

Switch the washers in the afc and then back the preload screw (not the starwheel) all the way out. You can leave it in some but I've got enough smoke as it is so I backed it out. Grind the foot to because the back of the arm really doesn't interfere that much so you don't get much by grinding it. Then I'd adjust the starwheel to get full fuel around 30psi. The starwheel and preload screws are you preference but to much fuel and you'll drown out the fire.

Save the money on dv's and have mikey mill yours. Then use the money you saved and get some ddp injectors. You'll get more smoke from mikey (mrector) dv's but less from the ddp's and the spray angle is correct so they will work better.

You should also be on the look out for a mack (2095) plug to get more rack travel. You have to slide the pump back a little to install it but I heard it helps a lot :Thumbup:

Thats just my :2cents though

Thanks.....I'll have to do the DV's and bigger injectors when I get the money to upgrade the trans. I have already swapped the washers on the AFC so that is done but I'll grind the foot and adjust the smoke screw and star wheel while everything is off an out of the way.

I do have another question though. My injector install kit came with 3 different washer thicknesses: .020, .060, .090. Which should I use?

Stock thickness headgasket, right? Where are you planning on setting your timing? For stock HG, 215 injectors, and say 16* timing I'd probably use the .090" :shrug: but thats just a guess. If you run more timing, 370's, or a thicker HG then you'd use the thinner ones accordingly.

Any one else know?

Use the 0.020" washers.

Yeah everything else ont he motor is stock...stock HG, stock timing for now.....I'm gonna get it set at 16* sometime here. So it looks like I use the .020's or atleast measure the factory ones and use that size.

Definitely use the 0.20 washers. They will lower the tip of the nozzle down a little bit and keep the fuel in the bowl of the piston better. That is really big when you switch to the 370's because their spray pattern doesn't match the bowl, and to make it narrower, you have to get the tip closer. A friend of mine used to run his without a washer, however I never liked that personally.

As for keeping your eye out for a rack plug, they're easy enough to get, it'll only cost you $15 or so.
