Has anyone had any experience with the Dragonflow Injectors.. 250 hp 11-holes!!!! I was considering a set for My 01 Cummins, but I was wondering about Drivability??

Good gravy! 250hp? I'm sure you could drive it, but it would likely have a foggy idle to say the least. I'd say big twins, or a huge single turbo would work with them. Personally, I'd save them for a night at the tractor pulls, or drags. Then they'd be "Draggin' flow" injectors!:sly:

With 11 holes I would be real leary of not only the spray pattern, but how long a tip will last before it comes apart and trashes a cylinder.

I've seen people run 11 and 12 hole injectors in a 12valve, but they definitely aren't something you want to run on the street. Those are made by Industrial right? I've heard they have a good product, but still thats a lot of juice. You'll definitely want some big turbos for em.

They are really not a bad price for what they are.. They are a $1000 on ebay... I have the Aurora 5000 so I think that would be plenty of air.. I was also wondering about the Smarty box out now for the 24 valve.. is this any good.???

You sure you got those numbers right?

I have a set of the II 11 hole injectors in my truck, and they sure arent 250HP.

Brady told me they are supposed to be 180-190hp. A VP can't move enough fuel to make 250HP from an injector.

The BFI (Dragon Flows) are an 8x16 and supposed to make around 200HP or so.

you aren't towing with the truck are you? If you aren't towing, you could probably manage the heat with your right foot, but you may not be able to get the power. Like bouncer said though, 11 holes is a lot, and that much heat in the cylinders as well, I'd just be leary of it coming apart.

I would call and talk to someone at Industrial Injection.

That auction is from ETR Performance, not II, so I am going to stick by my statement that those injectors will not add 250HP.

Is it possible to make these injectors with smaller holes maybe?????
Maybe some of this crazy power is coming from better fuel atomization?????
Maybe the stock holes are as small as diesel injector holes get???
I don't know. Where's the diesel scietist around here??????????

II makes a 10 hole injector that is supposed to be around 150hp at the wheels.

The 10 and 11 hole injectors are a stock 275 injector with larger holes machined inbetween the stock injecotr holes.

I have some pics of the 11 hole injectors but not any close ups of the tip.

Besides, you are still limited by the volume the VP can move. I have heard from many sources that 200-210hp is about all that can be achieved on fuel from a stock VP. There are a few VP's out there that can make more power, but I have heard they are not streetable.
