Thanks ej, kinda taking a very loose poll of people who have.
I looked into it when I swapped my motor best info I found was inconclusive! No one could say outright it was better. I opted not to do it.

I need to do those things. I'm quite jealous.

My ZJ has never been stuck, it was just taking a break from being so awesome!

Everyone only said it worked with their engines. When I get the time, in probably swapping them back.

I've thought about the injector swap too but at the same time I bet just "reconditioning" the stock ones would yield similar results.

Any work that's for nothing is to much work!

Here's the fender. Good enough reason to buff the rest I guess! But it won't really match till I get the trail rash on it.

I unplugged all the injectors today and plugged them back in a few times each. I don't have any contact cleaner at home so that will have to do for now. I pulled my battery cable for a little while and the check engine light is now gone. Hopefully it was a fluke. I have to go for emissions in a couple months and don't want to have to fix crap before I go.

Tire carrier is mostly installed. The bracket that the carrier latches to was welded on crooked from the factory. See how it all shakes out tomorrow.

I need to snug up the front bolts, so it is sagging a tiny bit.
