i talked to some dudes here at an injector shop, they seem to think that vanagon/914 ones will fit in the same holes. SO they are rated for 2.0 should be good.

What are some bigger options for injectors. I want to start setting up my type 4 for e85 and I don't want to make custom rails. What other cars used those stupid bosch injectors with the barb fitting on top? Something bigger then 400cc/min would be ideal. I like a little overhead.

72-75 mercedes 4.5L V8 had similar looking
75-81ish BMW 6cyl had similar looking
later models mercedes went to CIS and bmw went to modern style

there might be others, but thats my quick look.

whats the trick to make the fuel line fit the tops since d jet fuel rails are just tubing? I'm guessing a dremel tool is involved :mrgreen:

I would use T4/porsche or vanagon VS. just rubber lines totally.

I want to use bigger injectors, by bigger i mean a lot bigger then any volks/porsche injectors. Ideally I want to use the modern ID/FIC Bosch injectors, but any way i slice it, its going to cost a lot more then switching to ITBs.

short term i'm going to use the 18.1 lbers I got with my type 4. I already got the old torn fuel line off the injs, tested them, and repainted them. Back when I had my 914 I just put a 1.5" section of 7mm or 5/16" fuel line and fuel injection clamp on it. no need to buy a brand new injector for a little piece of fuel line. I just wished VW used normal fuel lines, it would make inj swaps a whole lot simpler.
