  1. Thanks for your responses! What i ended up doing is taking off the fuel injector pintle cap from the old 280ZX injectors and installed them one the new Supra injectors with a thin file of silicone (just like the stock ones had). I drilled out the hole to be similar in size to the Supra pintle. I am not 100% sure if this will work, and seeing as the car is still a few months away from being complete, I won't be able to test for leaks. I've yet to see anyone have this issue or address it if it was an issue, so I am going under the assumption that these were not Supra injectors as shown in the listing I bought them from. I'll update when i get it going. As for the intake manifold/throttle body, I think I need a spacer regardless if I'm going the cable route. The spacers I've seen have more of a rectangular shape to them rather than square, which I assume is to cover that extra opening area. Again, I haven't seen anyone address this issue but I did see someone who had a similar question with no reply. Considering these are both fairly common (or discussed) mods, I'd assume there'd be more info on these nuances. Nevertheless, where there's a will, there's a way. I'll end up machining a plate to cover the area and push the TB out more. If anyone knows where I can buy one, I'd appreciate the link. Arizona Z didn't respond to an inquiry to purchase, Godzilla is out of stock. Here she is below in her L24 glory...
  2. Hi guys, first of all, I never post on here because I usually find what I'm looking for but this time I haven't found an answer. For those of you that have upgraded your injectors (and it seems that most of you have), what modifications did you do to the intake manifold? The 440cc Supra injector nozzle does not fit into the L28 intake plenum. I haven't seen this addressed in any other post, so maybe I missed it or I have the wrong injectors. Can anyone elaborate on what needs to be done? I'm guessing drilling out the holes to a larger diameter but then what o-ring gets used? Side note: I'm also using the 240sx throttle body and it's round like most throttle bodies, however, this L28 intake has a teardrop-shape intake port where the throttle body goes. Thus, there is a gap at the tear drop pointy end that isn't covered by the throttle body. Does this mean I have to use a spacer, even if converting to a cable line? I read somewhere that if you flip the TB, the cable wheel can be used on the opposite side and the spacer isn't needed. Don't see how that works. Any guidance will be appreciated. Also, if there is a post with SPECIFIC information on this, please let me know. Thank you in advance.
