Default I'm a thief!

...and proud of it.

I found a set of RC Engineering 440cc injectors on one of the local forums. The kid bought them for his Integra and ran out of fuel before he met his 300hp goal. He had them in his car for a week, then pulled them and installed 650s.

Here's the cool part...He wanted $200, which was a great price for injectors only used a week. I made him a cash offer and picked them up about an hour ago. Let's just say I got a killer deal

You and your 275s can take a hike. 440s are for pussies real men run 550s.
Nice find.

550s? I'm just going with 1600s...I like having lots of room for future power upgrades.

Well, I was gonna run the Haltech E8, but they are taking their time releasing the new PnP harness, so I'll be running an AEM EMS instead. I am just planning for the future. Garrett just released a 460hp GT3071R turbo for the SR20 manifold (same flange as the Greddy, internal wastegate) that I am gonna upgrade to after the [email protected] in Sept. This way I don't have to buy injectors twice. Gonna build the motor (Wiseco, Pauter, balance crank, head work, blah blah..) and tune it around 440-450whp. Plus a Zex kit and the new AEM Water Injection Kit.
