with stock injectors you should be maxing out the duty cycle about 8-9 psi

I don't think i have seen any of them but cheer up it happens to me from time to time to. Maybe it is database errors or a moderator conspiracy the botom line is to not give up and post so much they have no chance of deleting it all

If you are using 1.6 stock injectors, I wouldn't push it much over 6psi. 8psi with 1.8's that you should be able to pick up for around $50.

yea.. I do have an intercooler just so turbobluemiata knows.. and would the injectors just unplug and the new 1.8L injectors just plug in my 1.6 or would i have to get a wiring kit..
one of my friends from mazda-speed was going to ship me some rx7 injectors for free but he never did sooo.. any one have any 1.8L injectors for 50$ or under and ship to ohio??

08 yep they just drop right into place check ebay for more deals on 1.8 injectors. As for the Rx7 injectors you are gonna need something to controll them or they will be a waist of your time.

Throw up a WTB ad. I sold my 1.8 injectors fresh out of my car for $50 shipped.

Also, check out Braineack's FAQ again. He's got a whole list of injectors that are direct plug and play. You might consider jumping up to some 305cc Supra injectors so you can really turn up the boost. You've got the right setup with an IC and proper timing control, so why not spend the last little bit of money and take advantage of it? You should be able to do 10-11psi very safely on 305s.
