    Few quick X charger questions

    Is the inlet on the X charger the same as the standard 215hp charger on my '08?

    Can you run it on the stock 38lb injectors?

    Is there any added reliability issues?

    If you put 42lb injectors in do you have to do anything to the ECU?

    Is buying a monster wheel or a RIVA wheel better than getting an X charger?

    Here's my thinking; I'll buy a X charger at 100 hrs rather than sending in mine to rebuilt. It will cost $415 to get the charger overhauled by Jerry with postage both ways. It's worth $200 on ebay as a complete unit so that's $615 and a complete X charger is $715. $100 upgrade for extra boost.

    Get the 42's with the X-charger. You will need the added fuel. Don't short yourself on the charger, just step up to the X and be done with it. You will need to put a VITON seal on the charger you buy. It will pay off in the long run. As far as the computer goes, you are required to do NOTHING. It is simply 'plug and play'. The reliability issue is that you don't blow the engine by being too lean.

    How tough is it to swap injectors?

    Swaping the injectors is SUPER easy... You remove the 2 torx bolts that hold the fuel rail in, wiggle the fuel rail while you pull it out, slide the clips back remove the plug, and the injector pops right out. When you go to put them back in make sure that the slot on the injector lines up with the clip and you're golden. It sounds a lot harder than it actually is. You can easily change out all three in less than 10 minutes and that includes enough time to enjoy a cold beer... lol

    Go with the x charger, you won't regret it. Went that route last year and will never look back.
    You NEED 42 lbs injectors with that x charger, stock 38 will not be enough.
    Inlet is exactly the same.
    Don't forget you will also need a prop, more than likely a 14/19 with extra pitch or 15/20 with less pitch.
    Speeds should be roughly 5-6 mph faster and better acceleration.
    If you need injectors I got a set for you, let me know.
