for my injectors I used the common bosch (I think, probly wrong) 784 injectors. I bough them used from a local buddy. they were fully cleaned and gone through by a person that he bough them off of. I noticed just a tad more throttle response when I put the injectors in. not really much MPG gain, maybe like .5 or so of an MPG.

Good way to not get pulled over....use a gps to find out how off your speedo is off and drive accordingly. Unless it's really bad and you just want to buy the part. Mines 5mph slow to how I'm actually going with my 3.55 and 31s.

well I already got pulled over and they might drop the ticket with the speedo gear fix so I fixed it. Also, speedos aren't off by a certain speed. It's a percentage.
