Make SURE you use a little grease or oil all around the o-rings. I had mine leak because I just used fuel to lube them, I had to push very hard and all I was doing was lipping the o-rings over sideways inside the rail. Put the car back together and it leaked everywhere... took it all apart , saw the little tube of grease DW included with the injectors and went DUHHH... with the grease the injectors slid in super easy, took almost no effort, and still no click, but they have been leak free for about 6 months now.

I used this thread when I removed the injectors in my WRX. Great help..
Soon I will take the pinks out of my EJ207.
The passenger side GBOD looks menacing...

But then again,I saw a photo of what's going on with the injectors and GBOD in the 2008+ Sti. Didn't know whether to laugh or cry..

What I got, what the WRX has... nothing compared to that..

i didn't see mention of starving the motor of fuel before doing the injectors... should I just pull the fuse while the car is idling?

Also what kind of grease can I use to lube the injector o rings? Won't catch on fire?

you dont really need to starve the motor of fuel. you can let it sit overnight so any fuel pressure has come down, and have a rag handy. There really isnt that much gas that will come out of the rails when you swap the injectors.
I use white lithium grease on the o-rings. watch out for fire

Going to tackle this today.

Did a test run on all of the GBOD's, this should be fun.

Though this is the last mod I need to do before I get my tune. So I'm pretty amped.

GBOD on EJ207 are really easy, even compared to a WRX. They are of reduced coverage, as compared to the WRX, all screws are uptop and there are only 3 screws in each.
They also rely on a stamped rod that centers the bracket at the bottom.

Vlad, what part of NY are you from? Did you source V9 spec C from vendor in Canada?

Long Island and Jdmracingmotors is well established on the forum.
Mine came from a warehouse in US.

I will be replacing my pink injectors with flow tested to troubleshoot P0171 CEL.

Will get my existing injectors flow tested and list for sale on nasioc.com soon. Let me know if anyone wants more pictures taken during the install.

Consider South Bay Injectors for cleaning, they're local to Long Island.

Any idea how much they would charge? I can get them cleaned for $79 for all 4 from the nasioc vendor.

I had clean, pre-test, re-calibrate for 700cc and final test on my pinks for a bit more. Go to their page, they may have the price there.
Looks like it's $60 for 4 for cleaning and I can't find my receipt right now.

Think $79 service includes free o-rings, but I am not 100% sure (sent them an email). That price includes free shipping back.

$60 isn't too bad if that price includes free shipping back.

I'll mail you 4 o-rings if you need them, without this thread it would have been much harder for me to do the install.

Doing spark plugs is easy just time consuming. Doing injectors is more difficult, if you have a wide variety of tools it shouldn't be too hard. Following this thread you should be able to do it in a few hours max.

Not hard, but time consuming.

If you decide to do it yourself, make sure you have 2nd car available just in case you run into a problem (if your car is a DD). Good luck.

Great write up. Went to do mine today. Started with the drivers side. Got to the injectors no problem. Was able to slightly lift the fuel rail. I then tried to pull the injectors out. No luck. I applied a fair amount of pressure. They didnt give at all. Im afraid of applying too much pressure. Sun is setting and the wind is picking up, so I put everything back together. I think Im going to try again tomorrow. Could this be because of pressure? I had let it sit for two hours, then pulled the #11 fuse and cranked a few times. Maybe I didnt do it enough. Anyone have any thoughts?

Here is the thing. I got that bolt. There was a total of three bolts that were holding the fuel rail down. The only other one I saw was the one thats kind of on top of the intake manifold.
