Default Anyone willing to help upgrade this weekend?

I live in Sierra Vista...I will be taking my car to the autocraft center on Ft. Huachuca to put on a VF39 and STi TMIC. Debating on having a local shop put my STi pink injectors on or not.

Anyone willing to come down and help? Preferably someone with experience doing these things?

I'm on Fort Huachuca too, but unfortunately I don't know too much about an injector install. I have been looking into a turbo upgrade early next year and was debating installing the parts myself. I did have this injector installation bookmarked though-

Did you get price quotes from any local shops?

yes - however, since he was installing a VFx and STi TMIC and STi injectors - its kinda part of the process

not to mention he waited like 6 hours for response before he took it somewhere to be installed

Well that's what I usually do. I have never paid anyone to do anything except body work in the past. But I just don't have the time anymore.

Well let's see, I've been without a car for about two days now. First the bolts on the turbo broke (x2), then they finally get everything together and one of the injectors is leaking.

You know, this was my last interest in this car. I was this close to selling all my parts and buying a used Vette or M3. If they don't fix this **** asap that's what I'm gonna do.

If you can do the turbo swap you can do the injectors. you pull like 2 bolts on either fuel rail off and then the injectors pop right out.
