    There about $10 a bottle. I have used a few different brands and havnt found any difference between them. They all seem to do there job.

    No point getting bigger injectors unless there is a need for them. Standard injectors should be fine unless you do some serious mods and then a retune that requires more fuel. New standard injectors might give a performance gain if the old ones are seriously rooted, but in that case it would probably be a cheaper idea to just get them cleaned. Given how expensive the damn things are I'd suggest you'd be much better off getting an exhaust and CAI for similar money. These will give real gains for your money.

    any change in injector flow rate will require a tune, the flow rate is part of the calculations in the calibration, change it & the whole deal goes pear shaped.

    Reminds me, I should get that memcal re-tuned for my new VT 22lb injectors...

    Cheers
    MaT

    VN V6 injectors -17lbs/18lbs = After 16years of use take about 2lbs off.

    VT-VY V6 injectors -22lbs

    Havent even had the re-tune yet on my memcal, but it idles different, different exhaust note, an drops rubber like a cheap st.kilda hooker.
