Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

You mentioned you get 1.2kpsi is that 1200 psi?

1200 to 1300 psi at crank
GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 8 months ago

Can you do these tests and let me know the results.

cylinders 1,2,4,5,6,8, balance rates are all +/- 1 but 5,7 are -3.5
GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 8 months ago

Once it starts are cylinder 5 and 7 weaker than the rest?

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
They are actually more powerful and the injector is retarding fuel
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
All voltage tests stayed above 10vt during crank at the fuses... what else needs to happen during crank in order to command the injectors to fire???
GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 8 months ago

For an injector to work the FICM sends them constant power and a pulsing ground signal.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I understand that but during cranking I know fuel pressure needs to be at a certain amount before they fire... what's else prevents the injectors to fire?? What other conditions need to be met?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Or any conditions that need to be meet before it will command higher rail pressure during cranking??
GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 8 months ago

As long as the injector pump and FICM works right and the pressure regulator is working and reading right. An accurate cam and crank sensor reading should be all you need.

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
New pump with new regulator installed when running desired and actual match perfectly and no defueling at high RPMs. I also shimed the fuel pressure relief valve
