i read where some one put ford injectors in a 4.0 (dont remember from what engine) and it runs better cause the ford atomizes(sp?) the fuel better and has a better spray pattern than the stock ones. anyone ever heard of this
I looked at the MPG website a bit. I saw a simple mod on spark plugs. You need copper electrode spark plugs. You cup out the electrodes and drill a hole through the metal arm (is that anode). I need to get me Jeep running. Both my Contours take Platinum plugs. I might try the cuts latter on too. Looks easy.
I'd have some bit of skeptisism though. Still, the spark plugs would be worth a try. Also, if you can change stuff back or make sure you use the same seasonal fuel and from the same station. I've noticed 2-3 mpg from different gas.
A lot of time when these high lb injectors are used, the motor will run slightly rich, so there is a mod where you build a small circuit that attaches inline with the MAP sensor to be able to adjust the input voltage to the MAP sensor, thereby allowing you to adjust the pulse length of the injectors. There are a few write ups, do a search for adjustable MAP sensor, or electrical mods, I built one, haven't installed it yet, if anyone wants me to make them one for a small small fee, PM me.
They use the 24-24 lbs-hr injectors for the Strokers. He should use 18-19 lbs-hr injectors for a Stock motor.
If you have 21# injectors in a '95, and if he has a '97, he would have 23#, why would you want to go with 18-19#? Wouldn't it be better to use the 24#? If not, what if you were to change the cam, would that change things?
