Will upgrading fuel injectors increase horsepower?

Will upgrading fuel injectors increase horsepower?

The technical answer is yes; fuel injectors can add 10 extra horsepower at peak. However, for some car owners, that minimal difference does not offset the increased cost and complexity of switching to fuel injectors or upgrading the existing stock fuel injectors.

Will bigger fuel injectors increase power?

3. Larger throttle body and injectors. A larger high-performance throttle body will deliver more horsepower. Depending on what type of engine you have, you can gain as much as 10-20 more horsepower and comparable torque.

When should injectors be upgraded?

But once the engine begins to process an increased amount of air (either by adding boost or NOS or grossly changing the engine’s displacement), the fuel injectors won’t be able to flow enough fuel to keep the engine from running lean. This is when one should consider upgrading their fuel delivery system.

Can I put bigger injectors on stock engine?

You can;t do a stock tune unless you can fool the ecu into thinking it is getting more or less air. If you throw in bigger injectors it will hold that injector open for the same amount of time as the smaller injectors and it will dump TONS of fuel in.

What happens if your fuel injectors are too big?

Bigger is not always better It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that bigger fuel injectors equal more power, but unless your engine is set up to deal with the extra fuel, you’ll be on a fast track to trouble. The excess fuel will flood the engine and it either won’t run at all, or will be running too rich.
