Default Low Z injector Wiring ?

I have tried searching, but I'm having a hard time wading through all of the junk out there.

I have a set of RX-7 460s that are Low z. Picked them up thinking they were saturated , and then after looking around learned that I can still use them, but need to add resistors to make them work. I sent them into get serviced and now that it's time to actually wire them in, I'm getting a little stuck.

When searching around on Google, it looks like people in the Honda world use a resistor box, but I have heard that you can just wire in resistors inline with the injectors which I would prefer to do since I already have the resistors.

So, question is, is it as simple as wiring in the resistors inline as long as the connectors will actually match up from the wiring harness to the injectors?

Does anyone have any other advice for getting these in? Thanks.

By the way - just got the injectors back from Deatschwerks and I have to put a plug in for them. They did a great job and had an excellent turn around time. They even called me to let me know that one of the injectors was stuck open, and though they were able to get it functioning correctly, they just wanted to give me a heads up to keep an eye on it. Definitely recommend these guys.

We carry a resistor box for 4 Cyl cars, $29 if you are interested, or decide you dont want to wire in the resistors

If you decide to wire your own pack, I made mine with Dale 10 ohm 50 watt resistors, cost about $15 total.
