Time estimate for injector removal?

Since I am off on Friday, I am considering pulling the injectors to ship them to Full Force to be converted to stage 1s. I was curious as to the time it takes to get them out?

I had mine out in about 2 hours. Now I have a whole other set of problems. Have you decided who is going to do your chip?

I am going to have DP do it. I am buying my injectors through them.

Hopefully nothing major with your rig. Just read your thread.

If you have everything you need tool wise should it should take 1 1/2-2 hrs max. Btw pull the rear injectors first so that all the oil and fuel run into those cylinders. Don't let the oil/fuel just sit in the cylinders, pump it out asap so that your crankcase oil doesn't get contaminated with fuel. The little marine drill driven oil change pumps with the 1/4" hose on them work perfect for pumping out the cylinders.

When I did mine the rear one on the passenger side would not come out. It was hittiing the ac box. All you have to do is remove the silver padded thing on the ac box and there is a little vacuum box that bolts to the side of the ac housing. It is held on by a couple screws. It will make sense when you get to that point.

i found the biggest PITA was getting the injectors to pop free. need a long pry bar and if it slips you can smash your fingers pretty well.

Where do you set the pry bar to pop out the injectors...I don't want to bust anything.
