In the market for some AU injectors and i found these on ebay

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BRAND-NEW-6- ... 485546e77a

The question is, should I trust them and will they be just as good as oem ones?

Also, should I trust oxygen sensors from ebay as well?

you know that saying that goes you get what you pay for?
your much better off getting a used set of AU injectors and have them serviced,
regarding o2 sensor, use an NTK or Bosch sensor, might cost you a little more but will last 10 years

I wouldn't bother changing injectors, just get yours cleaned. It only going to make your car run richer with the AU ones.

...that is a bloody good question. I don't remember, I'll have to have a look when I get home. I am pretty certain they are reconditioned AU genuine Bosch. I didn't even know there were Chinese copies. BTW I bought these 4 years ago.

Be careful!

I bought some ebay AU injectors (non-genuine) for my parents AU and they ran perfectly for a few months then bam, one was stuck open and another one started leaking...

The ebay ad was sneaky and didn't state whether or not they were reco genuines or just new imitations.

What I've done with the EB is just go to the wreckers and pull some out of a late model AU with lowISH kms and chucked them in.

I will get them recoed soon though but they're fine as is for the moment.
