Installed bk diesel plus 60hp injectors in my caps ISC

First replacing the injectors took 4 hours but know that I've done it I could do it in 2. No special tools except a torque wrench. Best advice I could give is really clean the area around where the fuel lines connect to the head don't want any dirt in the connector tubes. Now the injector review for a test drive I took it to the cuesta grade north of San Luis Obispo ca. Now before I would go up the north bound side towing I would top the hill at 33 mph not towing at 37. After the new injectors not towing I did 45mph. A nice improvement but not a hot rod. Can I say with any sirtinty that the plus 60 hp injectors or just new injectors made the improvement no, but as I go on the next trip I'll let you know. But it definitely has more climbing and passing power.

Without a pyrometer in the exhaust manifold you are risking engine damage from overheating the combustion chambers. Valves begin the melt at 1,375įF., you will not know until it's already happened unless you install a pyrometer.

My boost is 25 on the dash gauge and 23.9 on my engine scan. How do I boost the turbo?

With our 2002 DSDP I added the Banks kit. New turbo housing, Automind black box, EGT sensor and gauge plus wiring loom. Made a big difference and it was nice in that it automatically dialed the fuel back if the EGT got too high.
But the company that produced the Automind box went out of business and they never came up with a replacement.

I have the banks powerpak on my 01 8.3 DSDP. Runs great, nice power. I have to be mindful to keep an eye on the pyro gauge as I'm enjoying how nicely it climbs hills but it hasn't given me reason for concern yet. Don't think it has the automind - not found anything about that in all the manuals and literature I got with the coach.

Follow-up. Found my Ottomind. It was mounted in a small cupboard wall in the back of the coach. Now I need to find the bypass plug.
