It depends. If it has the Jetronic connector, yes. If it has the USCAR connector, no. Should be pretty easy to tell if it has the same plug as your Jeep.

I did this upgrade on my 98 4.0 last week. I recorded the MPG for the last 6 tanks before the swap, and once I go a few tanks I'll post my results.

OK So I've gone through the thread and gathered success and failure stories and I've compiled them together. I'll update the OP as well with this. 703s seem to be the clear winner here, 715s have been concluded to be too rich for our engines, and another model, the 710 seems to have had success with the magnum engines.

OK: success with 1-2 users
CONFIRMED: more than 2 users have success

93-95 4.0 w/703s: CONFIRMED (zander21510, 93zjbums, ahoyt653)
96-98 4.0 w/703s: CONFIRMED (MaintMech, melk, moggie99, johnt671)
93-94 5.2 w/710s: OK (General_Jeep)
1995 5.2 w/ 703s: OK (extrememarine)
96-98 5.2 w/703s: OK (1SASjeepster)
1998 5.9 w/ 703s: OK (nickszj)

Now I've come to the conclusion, and it seems to be the root of most problems have been leaky injectors. I'm guessing from sitting in the junkyard unused exposed to the elements makes these injectors highly prone to decay. Further back in the post, extrememarine posted his simplistic method of checking for leaks on his injectors I think most of us should be able to do if there are problems:

Swapped those three out and all was fine the second go round.
And just for augiedoggy, who has provided a wealth of information for us I will note that he has been successful with the 712 injector in his 96 5.9, proving that the theory behind the swap also applies to the Dodge Ram.

I have update the OP and edit notes for the 715, seeing as it obviously flows far too rich for engines outside the 95 5.2, I believe it is the best fit for that year seeing as the flow closely matches that of stock in 1995, though there has been success of the 703 in the 95 5.2. and I have the 710 at 18.94lb/hr@39psi; I will add them to the post as the best fit for the 93-94 5.2.

Hence why I paid a little more money for Wayne's time and efforts bc of what he did. Thanks again Wayne!!!

Side note.. I still have my 99 intakt and 703 injectors that I need to install. I need to find a TJ header so I can build my exhaust.

Can we get a little bit more detailed information on the 710's from anyone with that knowledge. Ie donor vehicles, part numbers etc

Also with engine mods dedicated to increasing airflow the higher fuel flow 715's may not be a bad idea for a 5.2(outside the '95) but I understand that this recommendations are based on a stock 318 motor.

I picked up some 703s last week. I ended up getting 12 of them just in case some of them were bad. I was wondering how to test them out... This seems like a great idea to see if they're going to leak or not. I guess I'll test them, change the filters and o-rings on whatever 8 come out to be good ones, then post up my results after a couple of tanks of gas to see what's going on with them. Thanks for the great writeup on this.

I have put about 250 miles on these injectors and unfortunately my gas mileage is DOWN to 10mpg from about 12 all other performance seems the same as stock which only makes sense... I will be trying the yellow "710" injectors next week when the weather improves..

its best to have them flow matched on a flowbench since they all vary a bit... keeping them together as they can from the original vehicle might be best to accomplish this....
Mine were rebuilt and flow tested and matched prior to me installing them and they still flooded my truck out so...

I recommend to anyone doing this who has an android phone to purchase an "ELM327" adapter from ebay and use the "torque application from android market to monitor in real time what your sensors see and the fuel levels , flow and trim levels to see whats really going on instead of just guessing and assuming...

So many choices... so a fella with a '98 5.9 should be looking for 710 injectors?! I'm having fuel issues and I am about to swap the pump. Figured I might as well swap over injectors too.

everyone can refer to the original post and I have recommendations for what to use for each particular year/engine.

I wouldnt!!! I bought 8 brand new 703 injectors off of ebay for $200 delivered and installed them in my 1998 5.9 and they run perfectly.... very smooth and mileage appears to be good too ( dont have a big enough sample to say for sure).

I say stick with the 703's, they are proven by me.

finally someone with 49psi fuel pressure in a 96+ that has had some luck... how many miles have you driven? more than the 200 or so it takes to adjust?
FYI I bought mine rebuilt on ebay too.... (the ones that didnt work)

I bought mine 'new' on ebay... meaning they had never been used...

I have at least 400-500 miles on mine and they have been perfect since day one.. never a rich condition and never a ping due to a lean condition (actually never a ping at all after installing these and the intake.)

My take is that it isnt luck at all... you cant come onto a Jeep forum and tell everyone that different injectors doesnt work because it doesnt work on your dodge truck.. I am on a Jeep forum, telling everytone that I have tried it on my Jeep 5.9 and the 703 injectors work perfectly.

Sorry if I sound hostile toward you Augie but you caused me a lot of lost time and grief reading your posts explaining why it doesnt work, and how indignant you got in your posts when people suggested you were wrong..
