common sense says any time you "rod" a motor, you take a small amount of life out of it. those parts by themselves wont cause a problem, its all in how you drive it and take care of it. i would say that running it hard with them will insignificantly affect it, but nothing that you should probably worrie about as long as its well taken care of......Marc

if youve never taken injectors out of one of these motors, you may want to get with me on the phone and get the full removal procedure down before you crack into it.......Marc
