Howdy,


I am looking for injectors, any set of 4 working injectors that will fit a Miata and support my setup.

I don't plan on seeing over 220rwhp, and will probably run around 200 once tuned, and 180 to start with. I will be running MS, so tuning is a snap, but would prefer high impedance units. While I would like to have 460cc or 550cc injectors, I would be open to anything down to about 400cc, maybe a little lower if you have some 323GTX injectors or something.

I can't afford much right now, maybe up to $100. I am desperately searching due to an m.net scammer that left me on the hook for almost a month. ECU hits the car this weekend, and I need to be able to tune bigger injectors soon. All other parts are waiting for this.

Thanks in advance,

Damon

Ok, it looks like deliverator is coming through with some RX8 units that should be absolutely perfect for what I'm doing. Plus they're affordable. Thank you sweet baby Jesus for mt.net.

m.net can go to hell.

Big +1 to finding newer injectors vs. 20 year old ones. Newer ones will more likely have a better spray pattern and more even distribution vs. a 20 year old set that sucked when new.

Yeah, that's the big selling point in the back of my mind. Even if they cost a little more, and have less headroom, the design has to be that much better, and I know the mileage should be lower.


But man do scammers suck. They should all get beat up.

Let me know how the install goes. I have some RX8 injectors waiting to be installed. They they look like they might be about 1/8 inch too short.

Wonder if anyone else is using these injectors.. I'd like to know if they'll fit before I ship them off to be cleaned

They're on the plug and play list.

I talked to some guy in the UK at m.net that assured me they were plug and play. He had a set but ended up not using them. He did say he knew they flow better though.

hmm...I just paid for mine a couple of hours ago.

After the scam debacle I was really looking for a straight up PnP

Hey I just installed the RX8 injectors. They fit just fine! Just make sure you get the seal kit for the RX8 though, they have a much tighter fit on the bottom of the injector compared to the stock ones. you could probably get away with the old ones but I figured I might as well replace them.

Nicacus, good stuff to know.

I apologize, I thought I had posted up to end the thread.

The RX-8 injector deal fell thru, but Rharris hooked me up with some RX-7 PnPs. This guy is great to deal with if anyone is ever looking for parts.

So I am no longer looking for injectors. The RX-8s would have been nice due to a newer design, more recent manufacturing and lower miles, but were a little out of my price range, especially needing a seperate seal kit.

Sounds good that you got them installed.
