Default ALH upgrade options

Hey all, looking to get some upgrades in on my rig, it's a '01 ALH w/manual conversion. I currently have a brand new DMF LUK, 11mm pump, and I think it has the 672 injectors in it since it was originally an auto. Freshly cleaned (taken apart) turbo and adjusted to spec.

I'm not looking for anything crazy, but definitely looking to get some more oomph. Open to ideas of new injectors and maybe a tune. Plus, how to even do a tune this is all fairly new to me. I've already done the usual preventative maintenance like filters, timing belt, even a new MAF/clean intake manifold. Let me know if there's any other details you need too!

nozzles
water/meth
Tune : call or contact Malone
PD150 intake
EGR delete
Auber gauges

i say water meth or just water to keep your EGT's down so you can crank had some .764 or 520 nozzles with a pop test stage 2 from kerma, Hammer mod your IP to 1.6-2.4.

Bump up the PSI to about 18-19 and get a 3 bar MAP
Have Malone or Kerma Write you a Tune

This is easy power and will be very reliable. You are probably going to need a stage 2 SBClutch Eunduro

Bosio 1019 DLC is your best option for optimal mpg and good performance, without needing any other hardware upgrades. Also you really need a tune after install them.

with my gt2052 and my .764 on an IQ of 1.4 im still getting 55+ reliable MPG. You want to tune, dont worry about MPG, you WILL get them. the only way to get more MPG is to get more power with out being ridiculous with fuel injection.

I agree with nikolay. You already have a 11mm pump so 1019 DLC would be perfect. I donít see why to have the IQ so low though. To get better mileage would be around 5.0-5.5 from me experience. You only lose torque buy raising the IQ from my understanding. I have a 10mm pump and .764 to compensate. My IQ is set around 2.5 and get around 45-48mpg.

1019's and an 11mm is WAY too much fuel for a VNT15, 10mm no problem.

That's why it needs tune. It's good combo, because of better atomization. Also it would take off stress of fuel pump and timing belt, because it will works at lower voltage. Bosio dlc1019 are good enough to deliver power without excessive smokes.

Exhaust, injectors, tune, that's it for a nice bump in power. Do that and drive it, if you want more, a turbo upgrade is next. KISS is the word here.

Hey aren't you in BC? that second S was dropped to avoid hurting anyone's feelings.



Agreed on the setup, PP520 will flow plenty for a stock turbo, then an 11mm with a VNT17 will cover that. Past that things get expensive. With the DMF, I personally wouldn't add nozzles just for the sake of reliability.

A tune first, then bigger nozzles,. After that, a turbo upgrade. Right now your turbo limits the power. Budget about$300 for the tune, $3-400 for bigger nozzles. Above that, your clutch will be the weak link

Been there - done that. Had to dial back power because of a clutch. See my signature.

I always thought that the tune was after you did fuel and turbo because your tune needs to reflect what you have, not what your going to do, right?

That's right, Mongler. Tune depends on your hardware.

20% of most thread here are communication with OP's. 80% is the rest of us talking about, learning, comparing, and arguing! I would say that 99% of the posters who ask, "How do i more power" are not the ones who are active on this site enough to hear back from them. Most of them are "How do i roll coal" and other 16yo vdubber wannabee hipsters!
