Injectors

Im currently in the process of changing head gaskets. i pulled out the injectors and turns out that not only are they absolutely filthy but i also have one 24# and the rest are stock. Im looking to buy a whole set of 24# injectors but sadly i am without a MAF. Do i absolutely need to get a tune to make these work? Thank you for your time.

your MAF needs to be matched to your injectors.

So they'll just have to tune my computer since I don't have MAF?

you need a MAF. without it it will run on preset parameters and will not have the ability to adjust your mixture accordingly.

Re: Injectors

Try an ABACO DBX MAF. They are PC adjustable to any size injector you might ever want to run.

Re: Injectors

I heard you can run an additive in your fuel that helps keep the injectors cleaner and keep them from clogging up. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about this?

My father used to use mineral spirits every time he filled up. It's a certain measurement of it and I'm not sure what it is but I know if you use to much it can eat the plastic and rubber components in your tank. I just use Lucas fuel system or injector cleaners.

Re: Injectors

Cool thanks, so that injector cleaner seems to be working pretty well?

It's good to throw it in there every oil change.

+1 Very good advice!
Also if you ever plan to store the car for any extended period of time the addition of some fuel saver right before you do will help keep things from gumming up.
Just run the engine/drive the car long enough for the fuel saver to circulate throughout the system.

Re: Injectors

Cool, thanks I'll keep that in mind. I've got to change the oil in 250 miles anyways.
