Injector type on mexico intake

Post by tedsu0 » Wed Jul 06, 2016 5:47 pm

Hi.

Iam currently bulding a 1600cc with mexico efi intake and microsquirt.

What type of injectors fit the orginal holes? Think both fuelrail and manifold.

Any cars types with the correct types is nice

Based on a photo from when this came up last month, the large body (EV1?) ones seal directly to the manifolds. (kangaboy "mexi efi" thread)

Later Volvo turbos would be a good starting point, but that is a very common injector style even today (with the high-flow injectors, anyway)

The large seal is about 8mm thick. It will have to be trimmed down to 6mm. The reason is the fuel rail will sit higher than than the mounting hole. by 1/2 the mounting hole.

Secondly, the Mex fuel rail inj. inlet hole will have to made larger. When you insert the injector into the fuel rail, the inlet will not seat far enough. Drill the inlet hole larger so the filter inlet "sinks" into the rail further.

Doing these two minor mods, the fuel rail and the end casting mounting hole will line up for mounting.
