And I had Detroit replace 24 of 24 rebuilt injectors with new ones on a pair of MTUs in a vessel I was running due to there repeated rapid failure.
I also feel your best bang for the buck is to go with the CATs.
Yeah, the reliabilt injectors are junk. I have a customer with a 63' Ocean with 12v92's. It went 2600hrs before major overhauls and never once had an issue with the origional injectors. It now has 500hrs since major overhaul (3year smoh) and goes through 2-4 injectors about every 6 months. The problem is that the DD dealers are stuck using the reliabilt injectors for warranty reasons. Everglades diesel in Ft. Laud does a terrific job rebuilding injectors.
