It's time to replace the fuel injectors on the Bronco. They are leaking, and I don't want to just put new seals/o rings on them. I'm going to stick with the stock 19lb/hr injectors, but I would like an improvement. Can anybody tell me if the later model injectors (with the 4 smaller nozzles) will fit in place of the stock 87 injectors and work with the computer? I've been told they are the same size and will work, but I don't trust the source.

Thanks,

Mitch

19's are 19's
However I doubt you'll notice any improvment over stock with a newer style injector.
It's still the same 87 computer and technology, it's like chroming a terd, why do it?

I've done the MAF conversion, so it's like chroming a newer turd. I figured that the smaller nozzles might atomize the fuel better. I'm not looking for a performance gain, but possibly more efficient combustion. And replacing my injectors means I will not destroy the next cat converter as quickly.

I've seen both the old style and new style on ebay and other places, and was curious if there is a real difference. I'm debating on finding some take offs, or just biting the bullet on some new ones.

MAF huh? Well, you still won't get anything noticable out of the newer injector, but if you plan on new ones, it might be fun to see just how little the change is.

hell, I don't drive the truck enough to notice, and I never track the mileage anymore. I go thru a tank of gas every 3 months or so, unless I go on a trip.

then I'm missing the point. Just get some ebay or junkyard injectors :shrug[/QUOTE

I still want the best parts available, whether I call Ford and order new ones, or get ebay parts. Since completing the front end, I will be driving the truck more, but still not as a daily driver.

That's cause you're :rainbow: :goodfinge

But I was once told somewhere around '93 or '94 Ford started using injectors which incorporated teflon *OR SOMETHING*, such that they wouldn't gum up or dirty nearly as easy. Ryan?
