DIY Injector Build.

First off, I want to thank Jim @ www.diy-injectors.com
The kit I recieved from him was top notch, he put up with my questions for months before I bought. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. I see he now has pre-built injectors if the DIY part doesn't suit you, I'm sure he is as capable as anyone out there building injectors, in fact I know he is. :mafia

Ok, now for the build. I swapped my friend my injectors for the inectors he has in his 97. So we took AD's from my 02, transplanted to 97, and reverse.
He gets 50 more cc's of fuel without spending a dime. I get AA codes to mod with only 30,000 miles on them, brand new from Alliant last year.

The build overall went pretty smooth. It is time consuming, but I didn't even need the instructions after the second one. If you can put together a model car, you can do this. In fact it's easier. I don't know if I ever made it all the way through a model, but this was a complete success.

Here are some pics. The first link is purely technical pics of the complete process. You can get the kit, and follow these pics through and I'm confident you could get er done.
Don't get me wrong. Jim provides detailed instructions, and a very helpful CD of high res photos to walk you through the install, and that it does. I took a few more pics at different stages, and highlighted a few more things in the hope that it will make it easier for you if you decide to mod your own injectors.
Second link is just general pics of the install.
Got a video of me gettin owned by some oil squirtin out of the cylinder too. Not sure I should post that.... laugh

The kit is 235 that comes with EVERYTHING you need to rebuild the injectors except the machining of the intensifier pistons.
You can have them machined yourself if you have a shop that you trust and that is very comfortable with tight tolerances. Or you can get premachined pistons for Jim and send yours back for cores.
I have about 350 in them including shipping.
http://diy-injectors.com/Stage_1.htm

You can do splits as well. You would do the same kit and machine the intensifier piston to increase the flow. You would still have a split shot though.
He also has a kit to convert splits to single stage 2's, which would be well worth it considering the HPO and other benefits of a single.
http://diy-injectors.com/Stage_2-C.htm

The reason the cost is more on that kit is that you have to change the Plunger & Barrel assemblies to convert them to singles and for the price of the new Stage 2 nozzles. If you wanted to convert your splits to single Stage 1's, you could just have him leave the nozzles out, which *should* yield a cost of 445. ($1045 - $600 for the nozzles.) You would want to check to be sure on that though.

Cool. How big are you wanting to go? Are you doing it for power or are they bad?
You could mod those AD's you have. Just order the kit and pistons, or have the pistons machined. You could do 180cc splits, add the nozzle and you'd have a 180cc stage 2 split. Should still get her to 400, might have some HPO issues though.
If you're leavin em splits you could really do it on the cheep.
485 for 180cc stage 1 splits if you get the pistons from Jim
985 for 180cc stage 2 splits if you get pistons from Jim
