I've had alot oof mixed opinions but the proof is in the pudding so good news there cheers ...

What kind of money is a reasonable amount for injectors new or used.. imcoukd probably get 250 dollars together for a set delivered if anyone has them..

Are the id1000 a plug and play with the mx5

Not a bad deal at all! Keep up the good work. Did the crank seal take long to change? Would it be much more difficult to change it with the engine still in the car?

it took about ten minutes.. i put a screw driver into the edge with some tape on it and it popped right out.. putting a new one in took a bit longer as it took a while to ensure it was in 100% straight and seated correctly.. id say the tough thing is taking off the gearbox with the engine in.. but not impossible

You will probably need to bump the stock fuel pressure to make power with these?

gearbox ready to go too so once they're lined up and joined again the front end will go on.. then my attentions can be turned to the rearend....

If you are doing the rear too it will be tight as new when you are finished.

That's because it's painted. Never get it looking that good by cleaning it.

Good job on the car, keep up the good work.
