My Legnum has been off the road now for 3.5 years as I've slowly been acquiring all the parts to refresh the engine after it hit 200,000KM.
Given the stock injectors are now 23 years old I thought it was due for them to be replaced, but rather than immediately purchasing replacement OEM parts, at approx $100.00 each, I thought I'd look at getting them reconditioned.
I reached out to Goleby's Parts and they quoted $22 per injector plus $2.50 per o-ring needed for them to be tested and cleaned. Given the significant difference in price and the fact I'm not increasing the power of the car I thought this was good option.

Goleby's Parts turned around the injectors within a week. The feedback from the technician was that the injector were working perfectly fine, and all they needed to do was replace the o-rings.

I'm interested to know your thoughts of how the spec sheet provided compares to the injectors as new? And if they are the stock injectors from factory?

They dont seem too far off.

They are rated for 390cc/min

390 x 58.3% = 227
227/2=113cc

113cc is pretty close to 122cc

A heads up for anyone looking for "New Denso Injectors" for our cars.
After receiving $540 worth of Chinese rubbish I took a quick look at sent them straight back. For only slightly more I bought the Deatschwerks 440cc brand news with data and in manufacturers packaging. Other than the uscar connection and spacers they are a simple fit.
This is the 8th day now of waiting on my refund for the other rubbish. The excuses are an insult to people's intelligence.

99% of the time its not worth saving a few bucks hey
Especially if an injector fails could cause a lean condition and loose an engine or worse leak and cause a fire.
Quality parts is cheap insurance i say

Disappointed by the seller for openly advertising new Denso injectors. As a Mitsubishi "expert" I would have hoped for at least fully remanufactured injector and some sort of packaging to suggest credibility. Time to get the bank involved as this guy won't reply to emails.

Since changing out the injectors I've ended up with a nasty vacuum leak. Tried smoke tests etc with no luck. When cold the car shakes and carries on, fully warm it's completely normal, definitely not driveable though. Wondering if I haven't missed something stupid. Thinking the intake manifold gasket has had it as when warmed up and expanded it settles completely.
