    Simple job..however new injectors are very very expensive...i would remove yours and have them gone through and save some cash as TBI injectors are very hearty units and rarely fail. Why do you want to replace them anyways...is the spray pattern okay....have you ohmed them hot?

    Never on a TBI, but did cracked one on my MPFI Camaro during the head job a couple years ago. That one was an incredible PIA to replace. After doing that one, I'd think a TBI injector would be a picnic to change.
    Injectors really are expensive, though, so I wouldn't change unless it was necessary.
