I own the whittaker ones I made my own up before i bought these They are worth their weight in gold!
Best advice i can give you to make your own up, if you know what the matco 5.4 spark plug removal tool looks like, study it and make a bigger version of it and then get some round stock i forgot the size but i took round stock and cut it to length i needed and pounded them in.
Before you go buying an injector cup tool or making one up, do you have the heads off? Ive had heads that were cracked around the cup that you couldnt see with the naked eye and sent the heads out since before the tool i made or buying these whitaker tools, you had to pull the heads off to replace the rear cylinders cups. Guess what, its best to be safe than sorry.
If you have fuel in the coolant when its hot and only when its hot-cracked head.
