Default testing for high/low impedance?

After seeing the other RX7 injector thread in here and doing a search, I went out and tested my injectors (havent started the car with them yet) and set my voltmeter to ohm and touched the terminal to the injectors. It read 14.1. Does that sound right?

Sorry for the retarded question but I dont want to fry my ECU.

I had it set from a range of 0-200, if I understand my multimeter correctly that is.

Thanks for the reply. I feel better now

those would be high Z, while you're at it, test all (4) injectors for consistency.

Never thought about that. I'll test 'em all tomorrow. Thanks
