Default willing to sell your BAD injector adapters?

Hey guys, i am willing to buy your bad rev-lab injector adapters if you would like to sell them, i figured AFI would be a good place to ask since all of you guys would be the only ones to have them

let me know! you can either PM me or post
thanks!

wow, they still haven't got back to u? It's not like the adapters are all that difficult to make?? I'd sell u mine, but I modified my intake manifold for them which was a PITA. Dude, I wonder if another shop could use them as a template. Probably sell a few of them.

yea they got back to me, but they are still another 2 weeks away from being ready at least, then another week to receive them, and my kit should be here next week and i want to try and get it in before i go on vacation for 10 days, i have already waited so long for them and thats the only thing left.

if someone had some and took measurements of it i could prob get some made but the problem is everyone has them in their cars and its not that easy to just pop out an injector unless that green bracket is already off.

i would ask rev-lab for their measurements but im positive they wouldnt give them to me, cause obviously they are losing 100 bucks right there and the liability of me selling them, which i wouldnt i JUST WANT MINE!

you had to modify your manifold? i thought they were just a bit too big by a couple millimeters, couldnt you have just lathed it down a little to have them drop in? maybe its more than that, but thats what i was planning on doing if i could get some for next week.

I have no lathe, but ya I could have taken it somewhere. I just bored out the intake manifold so they fit. I also widened the injector hole the fuel sprays through since it was a little small. You're going to need new upper o-rings since the stockers don't want to fit on the WRX injectors.

I've been under the impression for a while, after seeing WRX seal rings, that you can squeeze a WRX lower injector seat ring into a MY00 manifold, then a washer (with proper sizing, of course), then another seal ring, and actually use the rail to press down on the injector and seal it in there. I think it will work, though I haven't tried it yet. The WRX injector seats are like large square cross-sectioned washers or rings that are a little larger then the manifold bores, so they'll really squeeze in there. The biggest part of it I'm unsure about is if you can seat the seals in the manifold without twisting or deforming it.

Also note, that WRX injectors DO NOT have a lower seal o-ring installed on them, they use strictly the seal I mentioned above to seal to the manifold.

yep, you use the Bottom O-rings off of the stockers and the upper O-Rings off of the WRX Injectors. BTW this opens up other WRX injector options which is cool because they're high impendance. I'm pretty sure the PE's would fit, but they could be physically different. We'll see.

All of the WRX injectors I've seen are shaped exactly the same.

And for the record, if you can't get a hold of adapters, see if you can source a MY99 RS manifold. The injector bores are pretty much the only thing different between the MY99 and MY00+'s. There are some very rare cases of MY99's having phase 1 head bolt pattens (straight instead of staggered), though, so keep that in mind when you're looking. It may be only on some other models (Legacy/Forester), though.

Cool link for the parts, could be used for the new STi and forester/baja blocks in the future too.
