hey all,

ive tried searching, but despite what the forum guidelines tell me, search is not my friend.

please, does the 4.0 engine in a gli have all the plugholes that a Fairmont loom needs and is it just a straight swap out?

consider me a convert.

tried it,

last week 1 search here returned 37 pages of blue links for me to check.
this morning, 1 google took me straight to my answer. sort of.

could you answer one more thing for me though?

you all seem so car smart.
how come you all buy 2nd hand different coloured/sized injectors from different cars and hope the units work? none of you seem to clean and test your own injectors, the guys on youtube make cleaning and testing injectors look so easy.

whats up with that? (should that be "WUWT"?)

thanks.

I don't know about others, but when I get used injectors I pay to get the cleaned and flow tested.. or depending on what im using them for, I buy new..
