I've decided to fit some bigger intake pipes and injectors and came across some Bosch 850cc ones for a good price, the 850cc will run up to 750bhp with a comfortable safety margin on the injector duty cycle. The vendor is based in the States so I may have to pay import duty but the price is still very good, £300 including shipping to the UK. Have a look at EBay item number 180869377822, the buy it now price is $499 but I offered $455 which he accepted straight away.

ourselves, SVM and Mark Abbey are fans of Injector dynamics. matched & flow tested before sale. if there's an issue ID get it replaced




have seen some injectors out by 10%





get those tested before fitting to save Matt a headache....

I had some deatch works 750cc injectors brand new from the states ready to fit as part of a stage 4/650r type upgrade but in then end didn't use them and went for the id1000's. They came with a full report with individual flow test results which showed about 0.1% tolerance between them. I'm sure Bosch have the same. Don't Litchfield use Bosch 1100cc's as part of their stage 4?

Think so, and they are also flow tested at source to flow what they say they do. The key thin with injectors is not just the flow rate but the spray pattern.

They've put the price up from $499 to $520, I offered the seller $455 when they were $499 which he accepted.

I decided to go with Injector Dynamics ID1000. Assuming $499 + $38 air mail, add import duty and VAT, working on the assumption you'd get caught for it, take into account getting shafted by the card company for a USD transaction, could end up about £450 all in with potential warranty issues. Yes the ID1000 are £600 + DRAT, but any issues are going to sorted locally and fast. Just my thoughts :thumbsup:

anything like this id buy from who ever is fitting them. Anything goes wrong and its their problem. Too much headache and time putting them in and taking them out and posting them off and getting them back etc

I elect to buy from the guy who is helping with other work, but at £558 for ID1000 locally, the Bosch make less than no sense for my money.

You can get the ID1000's in the UK for £558 inc drat if you know where to look :)

nice, how much was that? and where from?
Discs and pads were already on the car when I bought it from Lawsy, they had been driven down to Donington where he did 5 laps before he was black flagged for being to loud. He didn't really want the hassle of swapping back over to the OEM so I gave him an extra £300 :smokin:
