Default b18b turbo need good advise....!

i have a b18b turbo its running pretty good and healty, on the dyno it did 260hp and 224 trq........

but the only thing that bothers me i have 450 injectors with stock fuel regulater and gsr fuel rail.......

my plans is to go 750 injectors with a good fuel regulater and fuel rail.... but ive heard that would save me gass unless i floor it....?

wtf. Bigger injectors would save you gas?

Get the car re-tuned with the new injectors and you should not be using any more gas than usual as long as your AFRs are the same and the amount of boost has not been touched.

I've heard the moroso pans are junk, and if you hit something with them, they're done. Steel pans will dent, not aluminum ones. But if you're not riding terribly low, then its no big deal.

My car isn't low probably 2 1/2 inch of the ground front bumper n not really shure if the oil pan is aluminum have to look into that .... I really don't trust tapped oil pans for some reason..

It's steel

I dont think Moroso makes a steel pan. But I could be wrong. Why would you not "trust" a tapped pan? You've gotta get oil to that turbo somehow!

Well actually the tapped portion of the oil pan is for draining the turbo and return line. The feed would either come from a 3 or 4an braided line off a sandwich plate adaptor, or elsewhere.

I kno that but jst don't wana tap in the stock oil pan ... But the moroso is a steel oil pan.. hopefully it won't duck up on me .. since its a 4qt pan nd I will be running a better oil pump you guys think motor would cool down alittle faster or won't get as hot ... I do monthly tune ups i kno waste of money but motor has been reliable for 3 years still going strong..
