Default wierdest thing my 99 GT has done to date

So I changed my plugs and dropped some new injectors in last night, no biggie, hour job ...

Anyways, today I head to work, rollin up the road...the laser side of my radar detector goes off. The laser has no false detect supposedly, so I slow quickly. Nothing, no cop in site.

Roll away from a redlight at about 1/4 throttle...laser beeping like crazy...

I discovered that everytime I get in the throttle much the laser side of the detector goes nuts. Rolling at 30, floor it..laser....half pedal...laser...

So either a cop in a helicopter hiding in the clouds is following me, or the damn cars possesed.


Unhooked it and took a spin in my sons Honda....Nada..

Hooked it back up in the stang and laser goin nuts.

What could I have done? Any Ideas?

It's got to be RFI; check all the electrical connectors. Also pull each COP and make certain they are seated properly on the plugs.

What injectors did you install, are they the same impedance (high) as the OEM units?

It may be that a bad connection or improperly seated COP is causing a bit of RFI that the detector thinks is a threat???
