some do some dont... just remember that fuel helps lubricate the injectors... starving them for fuel will shorten thier life....

I wouldn't buy injectors without a fuel system and airdog. IF you spent a lot of money on injectors like anyone I know does, than why would you consider starving injectors and screwing them up? If you got them for cheap, then you can screw them up all you want with starving them with a stock fuel system. Honestly, if they are brand new spend the extra $$ to get a fuel system, if not you aren't getting the benefit of the injector or the longevity.
