Default fuel injector replacement caps

hey guys
i have a set of 30lb injectors and a set of 19lb injectors
a couple of the caps on the 30lb injectors broke during removal. i took two caps off the 19lbs and put them on the 30lbs. the caps are not the exact same height. the 30lb caps are slightly taller. can i get away with using them like this?
(orange cap is from 19lb, dark orange is from 30lb)
the 30lb injectors with the 19lb caps arent quite as snug in the intake as the 30lb with the 30lb caps. they are both sealed by the gasket, but one are just a little looser. now, this is not with the rails installed, just with the bare injector. i suspect the rails will give them a little more snugness
i searched summit but couldnt find replacement caps. might be because my search sucked however

thanks for any input

when talking to me, just assume i know nothing about cars
