Default 440cc Injectors, good, bad? (Denso part # 23250-03010)

I ordered a set of reman. injectors from ebay, was supposed to be RX-8 injectors (yellow body part # 195500-4450)(Mazda RX 8 1 3L 2004 2008 Set of 4 440cc Direct Fit Fuel Injectors | eBay)

Instead I recieved a green body injector (Denso part # 23250-03010), has anyone used these injectors before, they were flow tested and I have the documentation for them but not sure if these will work or if they are any good to use.

They look like WRX 440's. If that is the case they will be too short by about 1/2 inch you will need extensions off the fuel rail.

Never mind, A google search of the part number says they are from a Toyota Camry, As long as they are the same height they should work fine.

Part number says Camry...
I think the RX8 are yellow? But double check that.

The Camary is what I found as well, should I send these back or give them a try? Shitty part is they make me pay return shipping even though they sent the wrong product

Well Either they are modifying these injectors to flow higher or you are being ripped off. Research shows that part number only flows 248 cc. They are also showing 550cc injectors in this add that appear to be yellow rx8 injectors:

I recently order a set of RX-8 440cc injectors from this seller without carefully reading the ad or seeing this thread prior to my purchase. I received a set of these mysterious green denso injectors instead of the expected RX-8 yellow tops. They look like the toyota camry injectors in the post above, but the part numbers have been removed.

I called TLF Performance and argued with the owner about these injectors. He claimed that Denso removes the part numbers on all remanufactured units, and they have been internally modified to flow 440cc according to his flow test sheet. I told him that they appear to be denso units for the toyota camry instead of the advertised rx-8 440cc units, and that I wanted a full refund.

I strongly suspect that the part numbers were removed to avoid customer returns, and that TLF is knowingly trying to scam people by misrepresentating items.

Damn, that sucks. I guess if you want to keep throwing good money after bad you can get them flow tested elsewhere.

I sent them back already instead of wasting money to flow test them and verify his claims. Rx-7 460cc injectors are on the way until I can find a deal on genuine rx8 injectors.

I'm quite sure thats a false test sheet too. That said i'd return them asap. The fact that the seller is lying is enough to doubt it.

They arent RX8 injectors.

I checked the part numbers on mine and they matched....I never installed them so I didn't know they were camry injectors. I'm selling my car so they never had any use. Well off to the camry forums I guess -.- since I bought these months ago, no ebay buyer protection.

SO do not buy these
