Weird looking injector

Looking at buying some "20,000km" injectors to replace a problematic #5 injector. Looking at his picture, the bottom injector looks funny at the tip. I am awaiting an email to meet up with the guy but can anyone tell me whats up with them? Looks super long. I've only pulled one injector and it looked like the other 4 in his photo.

Thanks

Its is set up to practice safe injection! No it's not a condom, but a tip cover. It protects the nozzle from damage. It is probably a left over from a new one.

stop! look at the fuel passage on the top injector, it's clearly rusted. I've seen it many times before, I would run away from those

You would be smart to heed this advice. Those are probably the old/bad ones from another repair. Might be a good one in that batch but I would not install them.

Thanks fellas that's why I post my questions here. Really appreciate it. He's asking $75 each or $250 for all 4, don't imagine these would suffice as cores?

Not a bad deal if considering them as core... I'd buy them if I planned on getting new ones upgraded and needed cores to keep my truck running while the new injectors where being shipped.
