Default Guess they weren't as bad as I thought

I sent my injectors out for insurance. I my problem turned out to be a bad hose clamp on my fuel rail and not the injectors, but good insurance either way.

I was one of those silly guys that bought the injectors used for $50 with plans to get them cleaned and never got around to it.

anywhos, it's good to know which one I want to put on #4, and I'm glad to know #2 isn't still on there as it was, if that was one #4 and it got gradually worse, that wouldn't be fun.

The max variance was only 7cc/min. It's always good to have positive knowledge, but you weren't really bad off before. They just make it look far off in the graph so you think you got your money's worth.

According to web site whose address is clearly visible on that form, they charge $17 per injector and estimate turnaround time of 1 to 2 days.

I meant to write weren't on the title, but still I'm glad I finally got it done. If that #2 injector was on #4, that could have eventually led to failure.

FWIW, they got them thursday, did the work friday morning, sent them off that day and I got them today. From VA to WA! That's insane.

It was still starting, it just took 24 minutes the last time it was cold out, the problem was the clamp on my dual feed fitting. the worm clamp kept jumping a tooth, so you could crank down all day and it wouldnt get any tighter. I noticed that the area around my #4 injector had fuel all over it. I replaced the o-ring on #4 and it started right up. the next morning it took forever to get it started, looked outside and there was still fuel on #4. so overnight it would sit there and the fuel pressure in the rail would drip out the hose and down #4 and flood it. In the afternoon it would start right up without issue.

I love getting injectors back from a cleaning. Especially when they come back as 560/560/561/560

Sweet, they're local to me, I'll have to take my injectors there to get cleaned before I put them in.
