Injectors and towing

I just ordered some Jammer stage 3's, on a whim.

Anyway, hows everyone's experiences towing with them. Looking for somewhat similar setups.

My truck;
98.5 CTD
Edge Comp
AFE stage 2
4" exhaust
FASS II and bigger banjoes.
X-monitor to keep an eye on things.

The jammers should add 100hp give or take.
I know my stock trans won't hold the sticks and with Comp set on 5,5.

You might be looking for a new turbo if you're running a hy35 and towing with the comp box on any setting higher than 1.

I run a comp box with DD4's behid a S300G turbo And like it. Got the full deal DTT trans though. When my total weight is over 20k I keep it on level 2 and it works great. If the trans gets warm I go back to level 1. Get the deep pan if you have not and take the check ball out of the heat exchanger.

I don't think that turbo will be sufficient with your sticks and comp box.

I agree. I will have to keep the comp box off or low and/or keep my foot out of it.
Won't happen, so a trans and a turbo are in my future. I might try and put off the turbo purchase for a while with a meth/water injection system.
I might also bandaid the trans with a good TC and VB, and just swap them into a new trans down the road. I know hardly anything about autos so I'm not even sure if that will work.

The return line from the heat exchanger on 97-02 trucks has 2 check ball valves. One purpose of them is to keep the TC from draining when the truck is parked. If you pull one of the lines off the exchanger you will see a large fitting between the line and the exchanger. Punch the ball out of this fitting and trans temps will drop because flow is less restricted. Unless you start the truck and imediatly drop the truck into drive you wouldn't notice them gone, and you will still have one anyway.

I guess you could say one ball is enough

you can do it but it's not adviseable and most trans builders won't warranty unless you have a new converter. They do this to ensure that there are not small particles in the converter that will destroy the frictions in the rest of the transmssion, which would be the likely case if you have a good converter with stock internals.

Hey Scott

I'm an expert in your situation.

First off is there any way you could return the Jammers and get Don M's EDM Mach injectors. They are an awsome injector, they are really powerful and run cool, and dont smoke as much as a honed injector.

Well before I totalled my rig I was running

1999 2500 QC 4X4 SC with 35's BFG AT
Full DTT Tranny
Edge Drag Comp
Don M Mach 5 Injectors (200 HP)
Stock everything else even stock HX-35

I ran that setup for over a year and towed my 5,000lb+ toyota with trailer and tons of gear all around Cali, JV, Rubicon, ect. I even live at 4,000'

As far as how it ran, it ran awsome!!!!! I always towed with my box on 2X5. Whit that much power you never need to get into the throttle too much. My temps were very controllable with my right foot. I never ran into a EGT problem, even on long grades.

Unloaded the truck flat out hauled ass!!!!!

Now the negitive.....
Since I still had the stock turbo I couldnt burry the throttle too long before I'd pegg my pryo. But when racing I wouldnt even look at it since it was burried. You should have future plans on a bigger turbo so you can use the full potential of all your upgrades.

My stock tranny couldnt even hold the Comp box, so I think you need to start saving for a complete kick ass tranny instead of a new turbo

But for right now if your tranny is up to the task you will be just fine

If you have any more questions feel free to ask me...
