Default Bostech injectors

Anyone every use these? I was searching for new injectors and found these at Discount Auto Parts. I did a search for a 91 Mazda RX7. They list na and turbo injectors for $39.15. They don't state if they are new or refurbished. However being a Bostech brand I would think they are new. They also don't ask for a core injector and buying 4 gets free shipping.

Never heard of them. tbh recon denso rx7 and evo 550cc injectors are so cheap on eBay I wouldn't take the chance.

I was thinking a person could get new injectors for a good price.
Instead of buying used, paying for shipping and hope the seller
doesn't screw you over with a bad injector. You must then pay to ship them
out to someone to clean them, replace O-rings etc.Then pay to
ship them back. Those cheap injectors are no so cheap after you add
everything up.

4 @ $39 = ~160.

or

4 for $50 online, then $75 to have them cleaned with all new pintle caps, o-rings. ~125, OEM quality, and you know exactly what they flow.

I wouldn't touch the injectors you posted with a long stick. One bad injector can cause a LOT of damage.

Yes, that sounds good, as long as nothings wrong with them. I just thought for $35 bucks more you could get new ones.

So you pay more money for injectors of dubious quality and unknown flow rates, or less money for OEM quality and known flowrates? This doesn't seem all that difficult to me.

New could still mean ****. The quality control with these guys will be nowhere near that of deatschworks or witchhunter. With these guys you actually know how much each injector flows down to the cc.

In my first post I asked if anyone had ever used these. I was looking for information.
Just thought It might be an alternative. I can't speak about their quality or flow rates since I don't have a set or know anyone who does. That's why I posted. I wouldn't discredit a company just because I don't know anything about them.

I did some more searching and found this.
Premium quality remanufactured fuel injectors made here in the USA under strict quality guidelines.
All components tested twice to meet and exceed OEM specifiations
All injectors are OEM units, not aftermarket, ensuring an exact fit for every application
All Bostech fuel injectors are backed by a 2 year, 24,000 mile warranty

So we now know they are a OEM remanufactured injector with a warranty. You can shorten you stick now.

So, they're still more expensive than the sexy nurse, and you probably don't get datasheets with them showing you their exact performance characteristics.



Just joshin' ya, Spin. We fear change around here.

No need to get defensive, you asked we replied and we tried to save you from possibly making an expensive mistake. These bostech injectors are remanufactured units not new so you are infact paying more money for the same product from an unknown reconditioner and without a detailed report on each injector.
