Junkyard Hunting....springs and injectors?

As soon as I get paid, I am heading to the local bone yard to search for some much needed parts for the ol' XJ. I'm going to be looking for some Dakota springs, a passenger mirror, hood vents, axles, and whatever else I think I might need. I am also looking to bore my TB and get some 24 lb/hr injectors. I know the Bosch-style ones fit, and they came on many things. Did the 24 lb/hr ones ever come on any stock mustangs or Chev TPI's? If so, do y'all think it would be ok to pick up a set of used ones and clean em out real good then use them? I am not all that familar with FI, so I am not sure. What do you think? Good idea or waste of money? The new ones are like $225 so I am hoping to save a few pennies to put into tires and more lift. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: Junkyard Hunting....springs and injectors?

When looking at those rear springs, make sure you see then under a load before you buy them. Used springs just add to "axlewrap" (when the motor puts a load on the tires and makes the springs flex in a reverse "S", under the axle.)This can add to "wheel hopping" too. This can put your universal joints in a angle and cause them to break too.

As far as injectors, I'd stick with 19 lb. ones. The new ones atomize the fuel out of (up to) 3 holes, I'm told.

Re: Junkyard Hunting....springs and injectors?

ur contained to the pressure by ur fuel regulator if ur regulator puts out 20 PSI then 36PSI injectors wont give ya a performance increase, I stick with 19 lb, the reason ur getting performance increase is due to the nozzle design over the inferior jeep injector.

Re: Junkyard Hunting....springs and injectors?

So you are saying replace the injectors, but stick with the 19 lb/hr ones? If this is in fact what you are recommending, then my question still stands, is it a good idea to get the used ones off of a 'stang? Or am I money ahead to just drop the $$ for new ones?
