I've seen that people use them, though I have RX7's in my car now. Not a bad price for new injectors though. If I was going to buy new I would get the RCs, they're just a better injector for the money.

Since you have the time. I just bought a set of RC550cc from: www.TREperformance.com. They're also on ebay. Check their store. They have a huge selection and I paid $175 plus shipping.

advance autoparts sells new RX-7 550s for ~$50/ea. Also not a bad option for the money.

I trust them more than some random guy in ebay... it's easier to drive 4 miles to make a return than deal with some ******* that won't return your e-mails or phone calls.

This is a truthful question. If their injector fails and doens't flow like it should, making that cylinder run lean, burning a hole in your piston. Do they cover the rebuild?

this is getting hairy...im sure there is more than one good answer here...after i bought injector o-rings from advance, i got a small leak on cyl. 1...after talking with friend who owns a 296rwhp Miata, and told him about my problem, he asked if i had bought my injectors from auto parts sotre such as advance napa autozone, etc. he told me he had smae problem and that once he bought o-rings from mazda his leak went away...so there lies my concern, do they pay attention to quality as RC for example, cause im sire one of the manufacturers would cover a full rebuild, but its the quality that goes into the build i guess, i've just had bad experience with them not being up to par...has anyone bought and flow tested them? that would be some good information for us...thanks for input
