Default School me on fuel injectors!

I'm looking around at fuel injectors for my vortech build. I know almost EVERYONE that does the build runs 42lb. injectors. However,I've read that I need EV6's with the jetronic correct? I see there are EV6 and EV1's and also Jetronic and USCAR... How can I tell the differences between all of these options? Are any better than the others? I know there are ev6 and ev1 adaptors to adapt to both. I also see that brothersperformance.com has FRPP 47lb injectors for a pretty good deal, however they are USCAR and EV6. Would these work? I'm not finding FRPP 42lb injectors only the venom ones.

Thanks

EV6 and EV1 etc are the design of the main body of the injector. Jetronic and USCAR are the connector types. You can run any of them, just keep in mind if you buy injectors with the USCAR connector you'll need an adapter for the connector.

Steve is dead on, I recently posted this on another forum:

EV1 and EV6 denote different body styles; and each can have either the Jetronic/Minitimer or USCAR connector. As long as the injectors have the Jetronic type connector they can be used in our cars without an adapter.



I run the M-9593-AA302 FRPP 24lb/h injectors (now discontinued), they are EV6 body style with Jetronic connectors.

So can I get these? :
http://brothersperformance.com/p-401...connector.aspx

+

http://brothersperformance.com/p-119...-to-uscar.aspx

and be okay?

I know most guys run 42lb. injectors but I cant find them for a reasonable price.. and for my fuel system, I'd rather buy everything new. (pump, injectors)

That should work fine for you as it would only reduce the duty cycle. The tune will be the deciding factor here, the injectors will only do what they are told to do by the pcm. They just have to be capable of more fuel flow to meet the needs of the forced induction.

Check around on the adapters. You mght be able to get them a little cheaper then that.
