Injectors

Hi,
A few questions please. How is it to start? If it lights easilly, this is an indication of good compression, and points at the injectors. If it is a bear, a poor injector could also be at fault. How is the oil consumption? It is possible to run a concetrated injector cleaner through the system as the car is running. While it may not do a complete job if it, if there is improvement, you're heading in the right direction. I think PerformanceProducts sells something like this. Not affiliated just suggesting a single known source, there are probably others among the board's sponsors.
It is also possible to test the injectors, this requires a very high pressure source of fuel to give them a squirt and the observe the spray pattern and check for leakage when it is not supposed to be squirting.
regards,
Douglas
