Supersuk, send the injectors out to be flow tested. If they flow 550cc or better call it a day and chalk it up to piece of mind. If they don't, Miataz should refund the cost of having them tested and refund your money.

******* Canadians ... stand behind your sale. Don't get your reputation fucked over a couple of bucks.
seriously who the **** are you to say ******* canadians...have you read the thread i am not the ******* scammer you dumb **** read **** before you post...

No need to get mad guys, Miataz is tryin to work this out. I'll get them flow tested to see if these are actually 550cc. Shitty thing is that i'll be paying more for these injectors than i wanted to if they turn out to be 550cc.

Well, I talked to one of the Venom reps and they said that they actually turn OEM injectors to whatever size the customer needs that is within reason. So these injectors that I have may infact be 550cc. Only way to tell is to flow test them or install them into my car and see if I need to adjust my PW values on my MS by a factor of 2.39

Miataz, i'll get you those green numbers tonight when i get home from work.

aha alright and if they were 550's all along, it dont care that you got mad and ****, i would have done the same thing probably if i seen the tan tops from a 1.8L lol, but i didnt know what the 1.8L injectors looked like so its all good if they are were goods, and if not i will give you a full refund.

No, Bullshit, Thats a scam if I've ever seen one.

Call your credit card company / paypal and dispute the charge RIGHT NOW.

Nowhere in his auction does it state photograph is "stock" item and your may receive something other than pictured. What you received was misrepresented in the auction and will be NO trouble having the charges reversed! DO IT!! DO IT NOW!! OWWWWWWAAAAAHHHH!! </Arnold>

But seriously thats a text book scam. After you send them off to be flowed, sue the ****** for credit fraud. Its across a country border which makes it a Federal Electronic Crime.

IB You're not the only one hes fuxxored with fake injectors.

I HIGHLY doubt a company like Venon would take in "core" injectors and replace the operating parts to flow higher. That alone just sounds ludicrous.

Apparently Venom does take in cores and makes them flow higher. I talked to the tech there today and he said thats what they do.

phone number is 1-800-959-2865 and they are known as python injectors

I could be wrong though.....

ahh... unfortunately no.. a local guy (a fellow chineser w/ 2 miatas and a 550 spyder - replica? i hope? ) picked 'em up last nite. he was in a REAL hurry too. got his extra upper mounts ready in hand, told me he'd ordered 9kg/mm springs already for the fronts..

yah, he got a steal... it's hard selling **** on here cuz you got a buncha cheap **** bastards (i, myself, included). other ppl on porsche forums drop $3K on rims/tires.. my entire miata was only $3k.

which brings me to this point: it's so JACKED ppl are ripping each other off on here for a few dollars. no bueno man...

And they don't change the color of the caps?? No way.

I still say the item received by the buyer isn't the item pictured by the seller. Still smells of ripoff to me.

Modding injectors for flow is nothing new. Suby WRX guys cut the caps off the tops of theirs to make 'em 650s. Suby STI owners send them out to a few companies to turn 550s into 816s. The STI side feed injectors need precise machining to drill more holes in the caps. I ran modded injectors in my Forester XT turbo. Spray patterns change a bit but nothing that causes poor running or pooling. They've been sent to Witchhunter to confirm flow.

If anyone can get bulk RX7 550s I've got a local place that could probably give a good deal on cleaning and flow testing them.
