so i have put an explorer manifold on the DL 5.0L and I have come across a set of 24Lbs injectors. Would it be worth putting the larger injectors on and if I did can I use the original fuel rail and do I need to upgrade the fuel pump?

Also woould it need a tune or would the the self learning still work within this range?

not really worth it on a stock engine... you would need a tune which can cost a bit.

worth holding on to if you plan on changing heads etc later on.

not sure about the blue ones...I think the standard ones that I have on now are grey...or maybe just dirty as hell and the 24lbs ones are blue and yellow??

Injector colour is not a definitive answer to injector capacity. I have sets of blue injectors which are 17lb, 21lbs and 24lbs. The only way to be certain of real injector capacity is to cross reference the part number

Thanks for that. I've got an AU Fairlane 5L with blue injectors & really didnt think that they were 24lbs.
