    Sounds like you may need a tune up.. Opti, plugs, wires.. Are you getting a check engine light? When are you getting the black smoke? At WOT?

    Soo how come you got ride of the charger?
    Yes you do have bigger injectors.. They are Accel injectors, i wanna say there #30 pound in injectors but i am not sure.. There is a number on them that will tell ya what they are. Did ya get the codes scanned yet?? If i was in IL i'd bring my Tech 2 over and do it for ya, but AZ is a alittle far away..
