Default Calling ALL Deatschwerks Owners!!!! Too short?

Just went to put my 600's in this afternoon and found out they are about 3/8's of an inch shorter than my stockers? What's the trick? Or maybe I was sent the wrong ones?

Maybe get rid of the plastic spacers that go between the rail and the manifold? (they are sandwiched between bolts that hold rail down)

Dustin,
I tried that, but the bolts then bottom out in the head...
Surely if you needed to leave out the spacers and get shorter bolts that would be mentioned somewhere. Hopefully they will get back to me soon, I emailed Mark @ Deatschwerks yesterday. I'm thinking that they were boxed wrong???

It's definitely possible they shipped you the wrong ones, but you might need shorter bolts as well.

When I tried to use my RC injectors without the spacers they poured fuel all over my garage.

I am pretty sure they shipped you some subaru injectors. Subaru inujectors are EXACTLY the same amount shorter than the miata ones, just like in the picture. Those are blue as well, and look like 06+ wrx injectors.

I don't think those are supposed to have pintle caps... I could be totally wrong though. Hopefully I'll hear from them today.

Mine are the exact same, I had to pull out the isolators and use different bolts, work fine now though.

so i'm getting ready to order 600's too... i'm not sure how they can be called "direct fit" if you have to remove the isolators and whatnot to make it work...

Mine were direct fit. Pulled old, reused isolators, bolt in. No drama.

If those are subaru injectors (as I'm almost sure they are) they have a different spray pattern as well as no pintle caps. I WOULD NOT use them until you heard from DW.

Deatschwerks Injectors should be plug and play. We are contacting flipt86 and will resolve the situation.

Top spacers are incorrect, sending me the right ones. Thanks for contacting me today, nice to get ahold of a company with good customer service. Thanks again.

This is the first person I've ever heard of having any issue with the injectors. Deatschwerks are definitely the injectors I recommend for all the Adaptronics. The 600's idle flat at 15.2:1, and have plenty of pulsewidth up top for power.
