Thats a good point... what purpose do they actually serve?

maybe protect fuel from leaking during collison? I just put the driver's side GBOD on... it took me 5 min to do it.

thanks for the how-to OP. I just did mine. I'm doing a 39 swap in a couple weeks and this will save a few hours for me.

I will add to this. I just finished an install of modded stocker. If your not doing the turbo. you don't need to remove the TMIC. I have a huge EBAY TMIC and it did not get in the way at all.

I did the GBOD removal along with my injectors last week. An easy way to get that hose off of the bracket is to take a large screwdriver and stick it in between where the hose bracket is welded to the GBOD, and then pound away and eventually you will break the weld cleanly. To you guys that went with pinks, I ordered new insulators from the dealer but it doesnt seem to be the same as the ones that were on there. The originals were tapered where this one just doesnt seem to fit correctly. Anyone notice this?

Just finished the install... I turned the car on and one injector was leaking. I pulled it out and found that it didnt have the bottom insulator on. I put the stock insulator on this one and bolted the fuel line back. I got them from deatschwerks and all the others didnt leak but i dont think they have the bottom insulator. Will i be fine with the others not having the insulator?? It is not leaking now.
Thanks

You definitely need the bottom insulator, otherwise you will leak air under boost. I was just at the tuner twice and was not able to get my car tuned because my insulators were leaking air during the pressure test. Talk about pissed. I even cleaned, lubed, and reused them. They appeared visually fine, but still no dice. A friend had a new set of insulators for an 03wrx which is what I have, but it doesnt seem to taper like the ones that came with my pinks. Does anyone know if these are the right ones? And when installing, do you put the insulators in the slots and then the injectors or do you stick it on the injector before installing them?

I did mine with a friend not too long ago. I though the most difficult bolt was circled in the pic below. I did not put this one back on and the cover is solid. The reason is that on the 04 WRX wagon, there is a slight bulge on the surrounding material that prohibits a socket from sitting well on there.

I did not put passenger side GBOD back on either. Putting driver side GBOD back on was much easier.

The GBOD's are to prevent your fuel bits from being smashed from a front end collison and leaking fuel and starting a fire. Its rare for a car to have its injectors 2" away from the main frame rails like ours. I would NEVER drive these cars without these installed. Think about it!

I did this yesterday, don't think I could hear or feel the "click" and the two forward injectors leaked. Like someone else said, the stock bottom insulator fit better than the new ones so I reused them. I'm about to go do it all again!

Also someone mentioned the injector should be able to spin once installed. It should not because there's a groove it should fit into, with the forward injector's harness facing forward and the rear/aft harness facing the rear.

+1.

ones with a swivel head would also be very useful.

my fingers hurt and my hands are covered in grease, but the damn injectors are in and bolted down,... now, to see if they leak.....

Let's BUMP this beast for anyone who wants to put in more advice. I just did my STI TMIC, fuel pump, and turbo inlet. I'm sort of treading water until I have a free day to do the injectors and vf39. The turbo I'm not sweating but staring at these pinks in front of me gives me heartburn.

I just did this and the GB'sOD were'nt that bad. The driverside was alot easier to put back on after removing the breather cover. I was horrified by the thought of doing this but after I did it it really wasn't that bad. The "tough to reach" bolt on the passenger side bracket was pretty easy with an angled racheting wrench.

To the OP, Good write-up. It helped me out alot to read it before doing mine, thanks.

Just wanted to share what happens if you don't properly lube o-rings/ insulators...





Installed over a year ago I noticed a leak and had to have the car towed a few days ago. The o-rings were lubed in motor oil when installed, same as the top insulators. I'm not using motor oil this time - even though others have had no problems with it, it is not a proper lubricant for them.

The other side was done with petroleum jelly and it's been fine.
