SWAMPS isnt responding. Injector question

Swamps is not returning my calls and gave me one shady email response.....

Heres what I got.

2002, 7.3

Bone stock except a muffler delete and a tip.

I need injectors. Buzz test had 1, 4, 5, 8 weak. Especially 5,8.

Im looking at Swamps stock injectors. Not the splits or stage ones, just the plain jain stock injectors.

My question is...

When I order the set of 8, does it come with the special injector for the #8 cylinder or is there something done in their overhaul process that makes this unnecessary?

The email response I got back was a link to there new set of injectors. (Which is $700 more). This lead me to believe that the remans do not come with the AE injector for the #8 cylinder.

Can anyone confirm this? Or tell me why its no longer needed?

Stock injectors are split shot. I can't confirm any of their info but the AE is a long lead injector that was put in to help cure injector cackle that some complained about. Honestly though it didn't bother me in the early 99 I had without a long lead in #8. Now running single shots in my 01 and single vs split shots isn't all that bad either IMO

All your looking for is a set of stock remans that are the same as what you have, then shoot me a PM or email me at sales@cncfabricationllc.com I can get you taken care of and discuss injector choices if you were to be thinking of a bit more HP.

As far as the one injector different from the rest, when people upgrade their injectors, they just forget about that one and just make them all the same. IIRC the theory was that all of the air and what not that was pushed to the back of the rails would be forced through that injector, so they made that one bigger to off set the difference. It doesn't matter.
