I installed my 370s earlier and the truck was running fine except for a small leak in #1 injector. I pulled the lines again to tighten all injectors.....as I did that I figured I may as well install my high flow delivery valves while everything was off. When completing the install i fired her up and there was a very noticable miss (not sure where).....almost stalls out when attempting to drive in 1st gear. She only runs at approx. 500 rpm at idle and has no power when driving. It smooths a little when in high rpms after turbo spool. What would cause this? not enough fuel to the DVs? poor timing? i am stuck and need my daily driver back! Any info will be much appreciated.....:shrug:

Whats the timing set at? I would start with putting another 5 -8* of timing in it depending on what its at now. How old is the LP? If its old and worn it might not be keeping up with what the pump needs? We need details if we are gonna try to help troubleshoot it.

Given that he's still running the stock HG, I wouldn't put more than 16* timing. If its a miss, take one of those temp reading heat guns and go down the line of exhaust manifold right where they come out of the head. The one that misses will be 50-100* cooler than the other ones.
