    Thumbs Up Drives like new!

    Dropped these in this morning..



    ....some ultrasonically cleaned and re-conned (new internal filter and o-rings etc) injectors.

    Went for a quick test drive afterwards and as it lasted 90mins, I can report that all is well... very well indeed

    if it's done over 60K miles, then yeah you probably will notice.. and more so the higher your car's mileage.

    Mine's done 73k , and the internal filters on the old ones were full of crap.. that all affects fuel flow

    Yup, even on tickover after starting it up, it was defo much smoother and less laboured than before.

    And driving... it's just more responsive.

    The best I can describe it as it that feeling a car has when after it's been serviced

    Hi Asim

    They aren't hard to change on mine, it's just undoing all the bloody connectors to get the loom out of the way to give enough room to the injector rail out. Once all that's done, it just two big union nuts to get the fuel lines off and 2 wee nuts to get the rail off.. then the injectors just unclip


    Here's one of the internal filters off an old one (cleaned out)



    Tiny things they are
