when we order a set of pinks (new or used), besides the actual injectors, we just need the 8mm or 7mm rings for the install? I just don't want to have my engine apart and missing parts to re-assemble... i've made that mistake before and trying to avoid it...

Most of the times, you should be able to reuse existing ones from stock injectors. Best thing is to get new OEM o-rings from either suby dealer or from another member here. PM Benw now

I find it easier to put driver's side GBOD back on than cutting it.

Probably, but I figured I'd maintain symmetry with my lack of GBOD.

They have been called the "Green brackets of Death". Don't know if GBOD has a real meaning or not.

Can anyone give a better description of how to lube the o-rings.

Also, can someone give me a better idea of how to remove and re-install the injectors?

Do you just remove bolts for the fuel line, then remove the electrical connectors, and then pull the injectors up? After removing the stockers, do I then just drop the new one in?

Is the injectors only held to the block by the fuel line?


What's up with this injector with the black thingy on the tip that the other injectors don't have on?

Please ignore that pic with black thingy on the tip. I bought them as is. As for reinstalling injectors, steps you described are correct. Simply pull up the fuel rail and create enough space to remove and install injectors. It's pretty simple.

I just used my finger to transfer regular 93 octane gasoline onto the o-ring.

injectors are held on by the fuel rail, just unbolt them and pull up on the fuel rail injectors will probably come up with the fuel rail.

installing them, just do the same in reverse. put some vaseline on the o-rings and push them up into the fuel rail then move the fuel rail into position

This might make things easier to explain:



not shown: 3 bolts securing fuel rail and hardlines to intake manifold. remove these, and the rail will pull the injectors out of their holes in the manifold.

pop out the injectors from the rail (thin rubber o-rings hold injectors in rails).

the isolators are thick rubber, I used motor oil. new o-rings lubed in gas, pop them into the rail first. second, lower the rail and injectors into the holes in the manifold. secure the lines/rails to the manifold with 3 bolts.

Great diagram. So the injectors are attached to the fuel line. That's why we need to pull on the fuel line that removes the injectors with it.

Do I then just yank the injectors out of the fuel line?

And when using gas to lubricate the o-ring, do I put gas on the o-ring by itself or with it on the injector? How much gas do I use?

Thanks

Yes, just yank the injectors out of the fuel line (GENTLY). Make sure not to damage injector head (spray side) when pulling it out as they can easily be damaged.

I just used a very small amount, barely enough to lubricate o-rings.

I know that gas evaporates quickly...so I should lubricate them right before reinserting them into the fuel lines?

It doesn't evaporate that quickly, so you should be ok if you apply o-rings before reinserting them into the fuel rail.

DO NOT put the GBOD back in!

I went back to stock inj over the weekend, and it only took about 30 mins to swap them out with the GBOD missing.

Throw them away and you will be searching for them next year when you are upgrading to STi

They may provide some protection in case of an accident too.
