Here we go again. With my recent problems with the 703's that I bought off of Ebay, I was going to take them out again the other day, when I got a call from the seller, saying that the 703's they have recently sold have been recalled, and I was overnighted some new ones. If anyone has bought injectors from "injectordyne" off of Ebay, you might want to make sure yours are running well and not screwed like mine were. His reasoning was that they were stored improperly.

That being said, what I was overnighted were injectors "Bosch 0280155784". These also came with adapters to fit my plugs my '95, seeing as though they are a different set-up. Has anyone used these yet on their 4.0L? Wondering if I should tell him to send me different 703's, or just try these new ones.

They are the same minus the connectors according to this guy.

Quote:
Use Dodge Neon injectors. P/N 0280155703 for 98 and older XJs and P/N 0280155784 for 99-01 XJs. The 703 injectors can be had from any 95-97 Dodge Neon, Caravan, Grand Caravan, Stratus, or Plymouth/Chrysler Breeze, Voyager, Grand Voyager, Cirrus, or Sebring with the 2.0L or 2.4L 4 cylinder engines. The 784 injectors can be had from any of the same vehicles listed above with the same motors listed above but from years 98-2000ish.

There is no difference between the 703 and 784 injectors other than the connectors. All of their specs are identical. The connectors for the 703 are the older EV1 style which
every XJ before 99 had. The 784 has the newer EV6 style connector that the 99-01 XJs have.

Great swap

Zander,
Great thread. My 98 ZJ 5.9 is running better than ever with the 703.
One more confirmation for your list.

Same here. 4.0L with the 784's finally feels healthier than it has in a long time.

I thought I would post here and ask. I bought a set of injectors from Precision Auto Injectors for my 2004 TJ. What they sent me was Bosch 0280 155 857. Anyone have experience with these in a 4.0L ?

I updated the OP with some suggestions. I added some injectors that have been discussed in the later posts with flow rates for reference. I also fixed the flow rates for others...idk why they were wrong but I recalculated them and checked with a few different calculators. Hope this thread is still helpful!

Rebuild kits should be the same on both. They have kits all over ebay. Ebay is your friend

97 ZJ, 2WD, 4.0, no lift, 235-15 Goodyear Wranglers (no adjustment by me to the speedo for the 235's)

After I hopefully got the problems corrected, I installed some re-furbed 703's. On the last fill up with the stock injectors I went 302 miles on 16.85 gallons (= 17.9 mpg). I drove a little on the next full tank before I put in the 703's, about 1/4 of the mileage. The next fill up was 354 miles on 19.35 gallons (= 18.3 mpg), but this includes what I poured out of the fuel rail and put in the mower gas can. I'm a little over halfway through the next tank.

This write up is now added to my "things to do" list. Great looking write up. I'm looking forward to it.

Follow-up to post #640: my next run, the first full run with the 703's, came out to 19.8 mpg. I wrote the mileage on the fuel receipt, so the numbers are right, but I don't know if I believe it. The hole in my method is that I fill until the handle clicks off, then go up to the next 5 or 10 cent level. I have not been filling it until it clicks off as soon as you pull the lever, i.e. it is absolutely full. I got my shoes soaked doing that the first time.

I'll keep track of a couple more fill-ups and assume any error averages out.

edit: I added gas today and the result was 18.6 mpg.

I did the 703 swap with my 4.0 at the same time when overhauling my 42RE (along with a Magnaflow converter replacing the clogged one that threw a P0420 code) - full tank (mine is a 2WD) maxed out @ 477 miles prior 2 the low fuel lite being triggered; im usually averaging 20 MPG with the 703s (stock 4.0L)...

At first I averaged 18.8 or 18.3 MPG after the swap (did a Seafoam repair) until getting 19.2; after 12,000 miles was where I ended up with 20 MPG avg - I have not used a stopwatch for 0-60 ETs yet...

I pulled the 703s out of a Dodge Neon which have been flushed and flow matched (InjectorRX in Houston, TX did the flush)...

Did this about 2 years ago on my 98 ZJ, along with the intake swap. No cat, no O2 sensors (too lazy, and the engine needs overhauled anyway). I got my first set of injectors by raiding the Plymouth and Dodge Neons at PAP in Louisville. Had about 20 of them, and picked through them for the best of the lo. Be careful, the length on some of the models is NOT the same. The junkyard set has been going good.


About to order a set of remans from silvershot_platinum for the wife's 97 Laredo, maybe swap intakes while I'm at it. I've been wary of the Injectordyne ones. This is the link: http://m.ebay.com/itm?itemId=190827041197

I swapped in a set of 703's with new o-rings and filters...

My MPG decreased, oddly enough.

I couldn't tell you why, but I was getting 17.6 mpg average before, and now I'm getting 15.8 mpg.
