Has anyone had experience with this or heard any good or bad stories?

You will get mixed opinions. Plenty of people run them with no problem.
It will change the spray pattern and people say it messes with the atomization but I have not heard of it being a problem.

There are tons of threads on here about modified injectors, do a search and I bet you will get all the opinions you can handle. I know the search engine sucks but sometimes it is way quicker.

iirc the Destchewerkz (or however the hell you spell it) are modified stock injectors, flow matched too. I think they're good if you don't want to spend big bucks on injectors like PE's or something like that.

i run the deatschwerks. probably the best modded injectors out there. all flow tested, maintains the stock spray pattern(big thing to watch for with others modded ones) and come with flow charts.

Kingpin used to do this and did a write up on here a while back. If they thought it was a good idea then I wouldn't do it.

Yeah don't do it, it's a waste, horrible for tuning, better off paying a little more for the real thing than cutting corners, I know people that did and regret it.

It's a waste to buy injectors! (unless of coarse you need 1000cc or bigger) Why pay hundreds of dollars for something you already have and can easily modify

The main issue with doing them yourself is that when they are modified, the discrepancy in flow rates between them can be increased but if you buy a set that has been flow tested and matched you won't have that problem.

i think he meant modding them yourself not the flow tested modded, if he was talking about the Deatschwerks injectors he would be a bumbling idiot who deserves to be put in a home for people with "special" care


ps. anyone know a good place thats hiring?

Anyways, you can modify your own injectors and have them flow tested for alot less than buying the Deatschwerks. It just makes good sense if you're on a budget. I wouldn't call it "cutting corners", it's taking advantage of something that will save you a decent amount of money and give you the same results.

Even if you flow test them you may still have the same problem. What if they flow test as having a 5% difference in flow? You have a set of injectors you can't use. The only way this would work is if you have a few sets you modified and had them all flow tested. Then you could match them up better. You could always recoup your costs of the additional sets by selling them which I have seen quite a few people do.

i don't remember the deatschwerks being that expensive? properly modded injectors are a big deal. i've seen results from someone doing it themself and it wasn't pretty. i'm sure there's plenty of others that have done it right, but it's not a chance i'd take.

The deatschwerks injectors are not the same as the modified ones in the link. Doing it your self you just dremel off the cap and you are done, there is no way limit fuel flow so I do not know how you would match them up unless you modded a bunch like mentioned above and matched them.

I am not sure how deatschwerks does it but they either keep the existing cap and enlarge the holes or put a new one on.
