IMO I wouldn't do this unless you have a flow bench witch I don't think you do.

It is worth the extra $200 or so to send them and have Jim build them and flow them that way you know they are done right.

I agree! I wouldn't attempt injectors. But that is just me. If it cost me an extra 200 bucks I would have someone else do it.. 200 bucks is cheap insurance. That is cheap. If you mess them up you will pay the price with possibly a new motor.

I sent mine out to him definatly worth the little bit extra for him to do it for me.

just like what everbody else said send them in, he is good at what he does but i have to say i built mine and it wasn't that hard but i had to send them to him cause when i installed them, the truck wouldn't stop puffing white smoke and i had a crack in the little check ball plate that was letting fuel just pass by and making the injector dead so i sent them to him and paid the extra 200 and he fixed them and i had them back in a few days and on that note it is better to take you injectors out once and have them done right and not have to screw with them again and it was a pain in the azz to set everything back anyways took me all day just to do it hope this helps
