    Yeah you can use Ford injectors... They are like AC Delco... they are more a name brand and make other applications as well, although I really don't recommend it. Why not go w/ the AC Delco ones? You can also cal TPIS here in MN, they really know their TPI's well and can help you possibly look into aftermarket one. Their number is (952) 448-6021 or I believe their website is http://www.geocities.com/milnerlives_2000/blazer.htm

    Thank you but I'm trying to go a cheaper route. I think the ford ones are much cheaper.

    I think I used a ford injector when I crushed one in my Camaro (it was a while ago and details are hazy). I drove on it for maybe 70K miles without a problem, then just before I sold it, it started leaking from the fuel rail due to a bad o-ring. All the other injectors were still using 300K+ mile old o-rings, and the new one had a 70K old one and went bad. Could've been a defective o-ring I guess, too, but I'd just go for the Delco injector next time...

    Check out <a target="_blank" href=http://www.sumittracing.com>www.sumittracing.com</a>. They have a complete set of new injectors for around $220. The prices on them have really come down in the last few years. The set I bought in '93 or so cost $400 and that was good price at the time! [​IMG]

    Two things. What pound prssure rating are you looking for? I can tell from experience go spend the extra $$$ for a good matched set. The ones for $220 are going be the base line for this. Variance of injectors, in a severe case, will make an engine run like its missing. In a high rpm or performance motor this can lead to misinterprtation by ecm. TCS, MAF, &amp; MAP will convert to improper engine "limp" mode and premature wear/failure will happen. My first 383 TPI the variance total for the drivers side was +/- 01.14 lbs. I lost $3800 finding this out with my first TPI conversion.
