hehe..didnt know you wanted to fix it..you got to find the bad one first..when you do..
Loosen plug on back of head to drain fuel. Remove intercooler tube and valve cover. Unplug injector and remove oil deflector on top side 8mm bolt. Remove 8mm bolt on lower side. pry up on injector to remove. Oil will drain into cylinder. I use a vacuum evac sys to suction the oil out. You can stuff a rag in and absorb as much as possible. Crank engine with ratchet at least two revs and absorb as much as possible. Unplug UVC harness both sides and remove fuel pump fuse. Crank engine with starter to blow out the rest. Bump the starter slowly at first so you don't hydrolic a cylinder. Oil o-rings and install injector. Bump it with the palm of your hand to seat it. Tighten injector to 10 ft lbs. Remove oil drain plug in cylinder head. There are two in each head, under valve cover between injectors. Should be 1/8 in allen. Tighten fuel drain plug. Fill hpop with clean oil. crank engine till oil is pumped out this plug. Reasemble as removed. the engine will crank for a while untill the hpop builds pressure and will run rough for a while.
Hope this helps.
