No problem, worthwhile having a set cleaned and putting them on

I maybe wrong, but if your ecu's been remapped, swapping out the injectors would cause it to run richer? When I converted mems2 143 to mems3 k maps I had to swap mine

Ah now there's a conundrum as I have both a standard 160 ECU and a Kmaps race ecu which to use with what?

A call to Kmaps will confirm, but the Kmaps ECU will probably run in open loop upto a curtain RPM and compensate for the higher cc injectors, it will probably run a little rich at higher revs, youíll need to drive the car a while though so the ECU can learn to compensate for the change in injectors.

I have spoke to K-maps and have been told that both ECU's I have have been mapped for the blue injectors so to stick with the ones that are in it.

Fair enough, I think they should consider telling people to move over to the cream ones and map to suit those as an option when people are buying a re-map as the blues will be maxed out after a re-map.
