fuel injectors aren't generally stainless and as a result will rust.

it's a moot point anyway you still need a spare injector driver to ...errr... drive it, the aquamist HSV is basically a stainless injector minus the atomizing nozzle.

everything I've researched about DIY WI has told me not to use fuel injectors cos they rust.

so I'm not going to use a fuel injector.

plus if I were to use a fuel injector i'd need to find one that's rated at 150cc, make a rail for it etc etc. CBA

You're right that common injectors will rust--

Here's a page on DIY WI systems that recommends the Aquamist nozzles even at the extra expense-- http://users.frii.com/maphill/wi.html


Or what about these: http://www.alcohol-injection.com/alc...nozzles-7.html

good reading, thanks Jerry


I've got nozzles, it's the HSV that's my sticking point, I don't want to spend more on the HSV than the entire rest of the kit cost me :(
