    What is the Real Purpose of Injectors?

    Hi Guys,

    as titled and what would be the benefits of running vxr injectors from standard injectors? I do know that vxr injectors are needed when running higher remaps...

    Vxr injectors keep the pistons cooler as they inject more fuel into the cylinder to stop the car running lean.

    The standard injectors reach their maximum duration and therefore can't open long enough to let enough fuel in at around 270 bhp, the larger VXR let more fuel in for the same opening time.

    The VXR injectors are not more thirsty as the map is written to compensate so when demand is lower then open for less time than a standard on would, this is why you need a remap to use them.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Was getting an average of 30.9mpg on stage 1 and Im now getting 31.2mpg on stage 3.5. As Waveybluewater said I just depends on how heavy your right foot is

    Got 210 miles out of 1 tank, but then 380 miles out of another... all down to how you drive

    you all are wondering why new injectors work better than old one???
    you can try to clean old injectors with supersonic cleaner. it will create the same effect!
