The connector type is the "USCAR" standard. Shouldn't be too hard to buy some from an auto electrician if you ask for them by that name.

I broke all the clips off mine about 12 months ago when I did the cam change. It hasn't caused me any problems, but I do make a habit of checking them everytime I change the oil.

Pain in the a***, because of the heat they become brittle.

you can buy them, we have em at work. if they need replacing we cut them off and crimp 2 new terminals and put it in the new plug.

USCAR is the name of the council that developed the standard for the "USCAR" injector connector.

It stands for US Council for Automotive Research.
