just dont buy 6BOOST'S injectors.... avoid them at all costs...

i was a sucker and bought a set off him, then returned them when 4.5 of them didnt even open, he replaced them, only to find that 2 of them leaked, and all had different flows upto 20cc...

and the worst part, all they are are VN commodore injectors with the nozzle tip and metering plate unscrewed from the end, obviously bought from the wreckers and painted black.

i can supply turbo manifold, siemens injectors, autronic ecu, autronic cdi, any turbosmart products (wastegate/bov/fuel reg), can fabricate alloy bits and pieces, garrett turbo, silicone hose... i have been able to source anything i ever needed

can do good prices, autronic are pretty big on dealers sticking to retail prices, i can do an SM4 for $2200, and 500r for around $920

retail prices are $2450 and $1000

can do good turbosmart prices

LOL, i spent a whole day wondering why the f**k my engine wouldnt start, being a full house install, you have a myriad of places to look, it would only run on 1cyl... until i ended up pulling out the injectors and firing them on a battery. 4 didnt even tick, click nothing...... do you think i was happy!!!!!!

THEN, he tells me hes never had a problem, must be my luck, said they were perfect when they were posted, returned them for another f**k set.. THEN i demanded a refund. only to later discover what they were. i had asked him if they were 901 injectors, he said, not 901 but similar, i knew they were cos bosch tech guy said only bosch injector to use a screw on nozzle was the 901, these are from a VN, get one, and you will see....

on a positive note, i speak highly of siemens squirters..

my 2c

I bought a set of 6BOOST injectors as well. I never used them and sold them to a guy on here a year or so later.

Half of them were siezed but after a clean, they all came up roses and flowed really well. More than I thought they would and the buyer was pretty happy.

Ive got siemens deca injectors now. For the price you cant go wrong. $450 for 6 * 60lbers. I remember when I turbo'ed my EB back in the day I paid $200 each for 55lb injectors :(

My wallet still hurts!
