    I have a 2007 v8 calais international. This morning got a fault for open circuit on cylinder 2 injector. Still need to do a few more checks to narrow down the cause in case it's wiring or something else. But if I replace the injector what tips, helpful pointers do people have?
    I've learned these motors have a fuel pressure release point, so that helps instead of pulling fuel pump relay and turning it over to remove fuel pressure.
    What else should I pay attention too? Been a very long time since I've switched out injectors.

    Don't buy the cheap arse chinese knock off crap injectors that are flooding Ebay lately for around the $100 to $200 dollar range
    Buy genuine Bosch injectors and replace them as a set of 8

    Using the link above to check that your injectors are the same part number as these and if they are you can shop around for a better deal

    For what it's worth I just replaced the injectors in my VZ 1 Tonner with genuine Bosch items and I got them for $435 delivered with express post

    How do the CC's work? Your link shows 350CC but there are 1000CC ones for a little bit more.

    The bigger the better?

    No absolutely no point going to bigger injectors as your car will need to be retuned after otherwise it will be running rich as hell, only reason you’d go for bigger injectors now is if you were going to do major upgrades in the future like turbo or supercharger

    I would do this, but I need the car running by Monday for work. Repco has 1 Bosch injector on the shelf, so at this stage I'll just change the one dodgy one. May do the whole lot over Christmas break.
    Had a resistance at 87 ohms, the rest were about 14.

    Thank you for the reply brother.

    Would love a supercharger down the track...
