    Cylinder 7 eating a spark plug

    Is cylinder 7 notorious for running lean on the LS motors? Is there any fix or solution for this. My tuner suggested going with a larger injector for cylinders 7&8. Has anyone ever done this?

    Can the injector pulse width be changed on each cylinder individually?

    Did you have the injectors flow matched ever? This doesn't make any sense to me; albeit with my limited knowledge of injectors from the past.

    I'd take it in to the dealer. That sounds like a faulty injector to me.

    different sized injectors?

    Sounds like your need a new tuner, and someone to look at your engine. I've never, ever heard of anyone using different sized injectors.

    Have to agree w/ M5eater.

    I did a lot of searching and reading before my build and I also haven't heard of anyone using different sized injectors in these motors. I know my f250 diesel had a dead head (non regulated return fuel line) which cause #8 to lean out and the fix/mod was a different single shot injector (the original was a split shot) but this is two totally different engine technologies.
