Default How much should RX-7 550cc injectors cost?

What's the ballpark price to buy 4 uncleaned PnP injectors? I'm looking around on ebay and what not and don't want to overspend.

I paid $80 shipped, though $100 or less is a fair price if you need them bad enough. If serviced they are probably worth more like $150 depending on what parts they included after servicing.

When I was looking, I couldn't find them for less than $100.

John - there's a guy on rx7club.com called Japan2LA who seemingly always has them available, and sells them for $103 shipped. I got mine from him, and have no complaints.

If the injectors are holding you back from moving forward with your project, I'd contact him and not worry about the few bucks you might save while looking to score a set cheap.

Go look through rx7 forums. Easy to find there in the classifieds. With ebay you're shopping against 50 million other people. Uncleaned <$100. Cleaned or recently cleaned $100-$160.

I've never paid more than $50 for an uncleaned set, and I've bought 4 or 5 sets now.

they're all gone, but that's how I got 'em. The turbo guys upgrade to bigger injectors and that's what's left over.

Glad to help. He took about a week to send mine out, but I wasn't in a rush.

they can be hard to get ahold of, mine were around 80 shipped uncleaned. took me a few weeks to find them too. probably harder to find now too i don't think there were all that many 89-91 turbo 2s.

from my two days of looking I can say that #1 most of what's out there are s4 not s5 injectors, and that the rx7 classifieds are filled with non-rotary people looking for these injectors.
