    In essence think of stringing several garden hoses together with sprinklers interspersed. Depending on pressure and flow rate the first few sprinklers will operate better than the end ones due to pressure drop and decreased flow rate. On older lower fuel pressure systems this claim was there was a similar phenomena to your injectors. The Tudblow was claimed to introduce a vortex into the fuel line to equalize the pressure and flow to all 6 injectors. This may or may not be true I have no clue. But the fact is that more modern engines have gone to High Pressure Common Rail systems wherein the pressure is so high that it would be impossible to have a pressure or flow drop at the furthest injectors. I once heard the guy hawking them on Dave Nemo’s show call the Turdblow as “an extremely well engineered valve where stationary vanes swirl the fuel to increase pressure”. Same thing with the Air Cell thing they hawk. Supposed to equalize and spin the air on the intake side but once the air hits the turbo it can’t possibly have any effect past the turbo

    I already did and the information was overwhelmingl negative. You defended KR. One guy referred to him as Kevin Rutherfraud which tells me that most think he's full of ####. You seem to be the total opposite. Maybe you know something these other people don't. Was just wondering.
     
    Bean Jr. and RJM1953 Thank this.

    As I stated in my previous post he's pretty spot on about mpg. Took my truck to 7mpg and can still get more if I get a decent tune and exhaust manifold. Gotta say having 969k on a set of injectors something is helping with that. Probably the filter system from airdog but you do you buddy

    Wait a minute!
    Aren't you too fast making a judgment on the guy because a few internet characters having an opinion?
    I don't see him KR a fraud at all. I see him to be a victim of his own naivity, that's all.
    I believe that actually believed in all that stuff.
    That's what happens when incompetent person thinks he became competent because he read thousands of books on kindle. I think it takes more than that.

    Yeah I dunno. I've never listed to the guy on his show or anything as a follower, but after reading some of these comments and the articles posted about him, I definitely think he's got an over inflated ego about his knowledge of running a truck. As far as him believing in those products he promotes. I'm guessing the paychecks he receives to endorse those makes him believe in those products wholeheartedly. He does sound like a fraud from what little I've read and heard from him. The kinda guy that you wanna do the opposite of what he suggests.
     
    flood, RJM1953 and 48Packard Thank this.

    That, and the oem reman engine was supposedly fitted with MicroBlue rod and main bearings pre-install, later proven to be ordinary Detroit service parts. Not that it would have made a great difference, it was promoted, promised, charged for, and not delivered. If memory serves, Mallinson fought that claim for a while before finally admitting what his shop did.
     
    Bean Jr., Oxbow, Feedman and 4 others Thank this.
