I was just reading up for the 100th time at the Subespeed site about the modifications they guy did to his RX. One thing that is looked over is to have those old injectors cleaned. He had a bad injector which caused a leaner condition in one of his cylinders, which eventually lead to built up heat causing failure in that cylinder. All of that would've been avoided with a good set of injectors (and a good fuel pump as well). Just thought I'd share!


Teh Old postay you broughteth uppeth.

May as well get this done as well before turning up the boost. Darn it! :(

a dizzy is a distbuter and you could put a turbo on your car but with the amount of work an headache and money you would be better off to by a soob that already has one

I think you GL turbo is like our leone RX turbo...1.8litre?
anyways, Check out jag injectors, something around the 1983 era, xj6, xjs. New Zealand10bux each (had to buy 6 tho). The fit perfectly, the electrical plug is the same, tho i am getting an engineer to put a new smaller "big-O" ring on, so the new injectors fit into the leone plastic mounting cuff thingy. probly cost another 10bux exch maybe.
They were made for 700cc cylinders rather than 450cc cylinders, so should be alot more squirt. I didnt know whether anyone else knew about this, but i am trying it out, on the advice of the guy that built up the RX engine for Possum Bourne's rallies, back-in-the-day. They used xjs injectors in his RX! Nice one.

Sounds OK, will run pretty rich off boost though. Is that 700cc @ 45 psi?
