Fab9 has them listed as cheaper than id1000s. I don't buy it.

Dunno what to tell you. Someone better tell Fab he's underselling his product.

They are twice as expensive because they are currently hand assembled from what I understand. I was researching them myself and that was the answer I was finding. It sounded like a negative feedback loop. They are hand assembled because there isn't enough demand. However, there is little demand because they are crazy expensive due to being hand assembled.

Yes but won't be anywhere near as easy to control at idle, even being ID
I think the 1300's are the largest "perfect oem like idle" injector

Thanks! Its mostly a stream of consciousness train-wreck, but if you've enjoyed it, who am I to argue?

Well I'm not going to be the guinea pig. ID1300 are lolexpensive and 2000s are way WAY more fuel than I'll ever need. I'll be fine with the ID1000s

Remember I'm not creative or innovative. Everything in this thread is derivative. Tons of examples of ID1000 configurations I can copy
