Default Fuel Injector Clinic (FIC) Injectors worth it?

Does anyone have any recent experience with Fuel injector clinic injectors? I know most people go with ID injectors now a days, but a friend of mine has a business and can get them at much lower cost than the ID. So i'm wondering if anyone has any recent-ish experiences with them. I plan on their 1650cc's specifically (will be doing a top feed conversion). the issue is most of the threads ive found are old, and i know how companies can change over time. so i want to be sure they are good to go.


car is a 2006 STi currently on a 20g xtr but do have plans to upgrade to a 30r ish sized turbo (still researching that). this will be used for e85 (flex setup) and will run e85 in spring/summer/fall and 93 in the winter.

That is a question specifically for your tuner.

If your local or E tuner tunes for FIC injectors and they give you the go ahead then send it, but for flex fuel on a GT30 on E85 you should be fine with ID1700s and they are easier (so I hear) and more people tune for them.

my tuner is the one who can get them cheaper lol. he's just never tuned with them on a subaru. he has on other platforms but i do want to see if anyone here has experience with them on a subaru specific platform.

if i dont find any info on them i will go with the ID1700s, but i can get the FIC1650s for ALOT less money. just dont want to risk hurting anything in the car is all.

Did you get fuel injector clinic or fuel injector connnections? There are two fic companies.

How far off was the tune when switching or did you re tune?

I was looking for something similar to the id2000 injector I had the older id2000 and they failed on me. Ended up just getting cheap bosch 2000cc I toom the bosch part nunber off my id2000 and bought those. Car runs about the same honestly as it did with the id2000 pretty well. I had to tinker with the fuel pressure slightly. Been meaning to get a retune but I guess they dont tune the AP v2 anymore. So I'm kinda debating go v3 or wait to see when they decide to ditch the v3 and go right to a v4 or just dump in a ms3 pro or link or a vipec if what I want to do with the edu yet.

Fuel Injector Clinic. "Fuel Injector Connnections" sounds like a knockoff lol, but maybe that's just my ignorance.

I ended up working with my tuner to adjust the map. I'm using an AP v3 FWIW.

The ID2000s were great at open throttle, but everything from idle to light throttle was like riding a bucking bronco. Tons of misfires at idle. Drove me bonkers lol

Was that on pump gas our e85? I guess all the 2000cc act like that on pump gas?



I'm gonna try a different brand.. GRAMS... But I thought the fuel injector connections was better because they support GM products a superior brand!

i'm glad to hear the issue was fixed with these. and after swapping to FIC you have had good use both in wot and idle?


to be clear i am talking about fuel injector clinic. and with BeastianSTI's take, i think i'm going to go for them. especially considering they are hundreds of dollars cheaper than ID with the discount I can get.

Yep - idle and wot are great! Also I love that the orings aren't so.... Dainty lol. Much less likely to break them and have serious issues.

How tight do there seals sit into the top hats? My id seals are like balloons never liked how they slid right on without good resistance. A double o-ring seal like the factory side feed would be superior!

Id love to go with deka injectors but theyre low impediance. So would need resistor box to run them on the stock edu. Or some,billet atomizers would be nice. Meh if only I had motec money ***128518;
