Hello there, I recently bought a supercharger (procharger) for my 2001 v6 mustang and I installed. However the injectors that came with it are 42lb injectors and when I try to put them on the car didn’t run well:eyebulge: so I put the stock injectors back. How can I put these injectors in my car? What do I need in order to do so.? I will appreciate a lot if you guys help me out with some answers.

you need a mass air sensor calibrated for 42#/hr injectors, yours is still programmed for 21#/hr

ProCharger generally gives you a chip for the 42lb'ers.

Don't run the car with the SC attached and the stock injectors, your mixture will be lean, and you'll destroy the engine.


They have a good tech line. Give 'em a call.

I don't think you need one, the chip should take care of it, unless the kit's changed. If you DO need one, ATI should have sent it.

you may need a chip for them. You may want to contact procharger and ask them if they have an option. I would hate to tell you to miss match companies if procharger has a solution.

Complete Systems
Fuel-injected automotive and truck ProCharger Systems are generally 100% complete, with all the components needed for an attractive, OEM-quality installation. An exception is larger fuel injectors, as some systems exclude these, especially if larger fuel injectors are only needed for upgraded boost and power levels. All hardware is of the highest quality, and fuel-injected systems include a high-flow external fuel pump as standard equipment if necessary for proper fuel delivery. Carbureted systems are complete with the exception of the carburetor and fuel system, which depend upon an individual's specific motor and performance needs.

That looks like the stock MAF.

and it says a chip is supplied in the 11psi kit, but on one of the kits you need a higher capacity fuel pump.

you need your part number and the tech dept.

Ohh well they send me a Diablo sport computer ship but I don’t know if that one will help me to solve this problem.

it was already in the kit, or they're sending it now?

If it was already in the kit, it will absolutely solve the problem, though you should get a dyno tune, regardless.

It's easy enough to install, just don't get too rough with the contacts.

When I installed my procharger, I had major driveability issues too. No matter how good the tuners are, a mail order chip will not be exact for your car. I'd highly recommend a dyno tune so you know for sure that your car will be calibrated throughout the power band.

I wound up getting 42# injectors, a Pro-M Univer. Mass air meter and a dynotune, with 290 rear wheel horsepower........

Well I hope I will have more than 290hp at the end of the story. I have the complete exhaust system and a venom 300 module ship…… But to be honest with I don’t care if has 290 hp or more the only thing I care right now is to install the injectors that came with the kit, it’s a waste if I don’t use them, and right now I have them in my garage listening to our conversation. So I will try to put the comp chip that came with the kit. But after I program I have to change the injectors right away or I can wait a couple of days, or simply program the ship one more time? Thanks

the venom chip isn't configured for your system, you need to use the diablo chip, with the SC program.

you HAVE to use the 42 lb injectors with the SC unit. Otherwise the engine will blow.

After you have everything installed, including the diablo chip, take it to a dyno shop.

Sell the Venom chip, because you don't need it anymore.

I was reading the manual and the part regarding to computer ship says the comp is located in the passenger side of the car and I put it for the first time in the driver side. Do I have to connect the comp ship to the main computer of the car or there are other places where I can plug it in? What’s the exactly location of this device? Thanks.

But what the venom does is raise the rpm. Does this damage my engine?
it's not doing anything the diablo chip won't do.

Depends on how high you're raising hte redline.

On a stock engine, going over 5500 doesn't get you anything but an abused rotating assembly.
