Default TECII kit, almost done, 550cc injectors??

My 550cc injectors don't fit. Anyone have a baseline for a TECII w/ stock injectors? I would love to have my car driving, otherwise it's $210 for a plane ticket back home.

Define "won't fit". The injectors Shiv uses are known not to seat completely in MY00+ cars, but you can just seal around them with silicone and they are fine.

I believe he has <99 injectors. Which are shaped differently due to lacking injector air assist, which the >2000 are equipped with.

Yes, we are talking about the same thing. You can use silicone to hold them in.

Silicone?? I must have gotten lucky then. My Injectors (MY00) fit fine. We (RyanC and I) had some difficulties getting them to fit but after a phone call to Shiv to confirm that there shouldn't be an issue, they bolted right on with a little bit of persuasion. The injectors were also installed on RyanC's car without any silicone.

Weird, Shiv told me they would not fit properly without silicone on my MY00 (I haven't installed them yet).

That's interesting. For my peace of mind, what kind of silicone are you talking about here? The kind used to lube the o-rings or the kind say, used to seal a bathtub?? I lubed the o-rings using "o-ring lube" that I had picked up somewhere. It's oil based. But I didn't have to physically seal them with anything.

The 550cc injectors will "fit" fine in a '00. The included o-rings just may not seal perfectly to the manifold, causing a slight air leak. They don't seem to get squeezed quite enough when installed to grip the injector tightly. The oem injectors are longer in the '00's, with a step to a smaller diameter. This smaller diameter section reaches further into the manifold than the '99 style. Otherwise, everything is the same. This problem is not an obvious thing, only becoming apparent to me after installing the larger fuel rails and trying to nail down a perfect and consistent idle. I just put a small bead of silicone (black, automotive type) around the largest diameter of the injector that makes metal to metal contact with the manifold. NOT on the o-rings . If I ever get really ambitious, I may try to find a tighter fitting o-ring, but it has never since been an issue. I've also heard that there are a few variations of the '00 manifolds, although both of mine are the same. Maybe that explains why some have not had any issues. Hope this helps clear things up.

Just to clarify, Fitz, that wasn't 'o-ring' lube...

Shiv says that it's all good, just use a little silicone. New question, anyone know where I can find a PROM upgrade for my TECII? The WinTek software doesn't want to work for me until I upgrade that to version 2

You have to send the TEC-II to Electromotive for the upgrade. I'm just going to keep using WinTEC 1.x for a while since I don't feel like dealing with the downtime.

No you don't; Shiv can send you a new Eprom for about $150 or so, or you can download the 1.1.6 software if they still have it on their web site and use that in the interim.

Sorry, their site said you had to return the TEC for the upgrade. If I can just order a new PROM, that is great.
