How-to nissan injectors and modded rails
how to install nissan injectors in stock rail
Now many of you knows you can obtain 550cc injectors for cheap (even higher for other injector) but nobody knows how to do it. well this how-to knows it all or almost
First don't go jump all out on theses injectors. You'll need to be boosted in order to use them. you need some kind of aftermarket fuel management system to use them. Megasquirt is a good idea.
first thing you need to do is bore th stock fuel rail.The bore has to be cut to 0.990"
Next the top part of the rail needs to be cut down 0.205" because the nissan injectors is smaller (in length but beefier in width)
These are the only mod you need to do to the rail. I really recommend to have the rails done by a competent machine shop. The job has to be perfectly straight.
For the injectors
Here is a list of cars you can get the injectors from. Try getting the injectors from a 6cyl. cars so your injectors comes all from the same cars and not 2 different cars.

The red tops once modded give 550cc, the pink top once modded give 480cc. Be carefull with the sr20det injectors as they are 370cc and once modded they give 880cc (according to ray on PT). 880 Is more than you'll ever need
this is what has to be done to the injectors.
first take them out of their fuel rails. What I did his stuck the rail in a vice and pry with a set of vice grip on top of the pastic part of the injectors, I twisted and pull and came right off
This is what they look like once out.
You have to take the cap off. Just use a pair of plyers, there's nothin to it
This is what they look like without their cap
Rub the injector on a 100grit sandpaper until you can take the top part with a little knife. See the pictures below. It's hard to explain.
Take your time for the first one.
Once done you'll see a big pintle instead of 4 little holes.
this is how nissan limited their flow on their cars. At the base they are all the same but they have all different tips.
for the oring, I used the stock upper nissan o-ring and stock kl bottom oring. Some say to get a 7/8 top oring but the nissan one did the job for me.
Next you have to mod the hats. The only thing you have to do is open up the holes on each side by the center because the distance between the 2 holes on the k serie rail is smaller than the nissan one. I used a drill to start them up and finish the job with a lime (sp?)
After that drop the injectors in the rails. be carefull. Lubricate the orings before dropping them in or you can split an oring open easly (see post under by mazdamaniacmx3 for types of lube to be used) the injectors will be hard to install in the rail but that's normall.
After that install the hats on top and use the mazda bolts or nissan. They are all the same.
As far as connectors are concerned, just use the one on the car that the injectors came out (see list above) and you can use these one too.
1995-98 200SX 1597cc GA16DE
1991-98 Sentra 1597cc GA16DE
That's it. One thing I suggest is having them test flow prior to intalling them in your car so you can be sure what flow rate they are and you have an exact number to enter in your stand alone. It will also make sure that they are the same flow.
Some say you can also use subaru injectors but nobody as played with them yet
