After two failures of the factory injectors on my 825I in 2.5 years I have enough of the cost of poorly make injectors, installed three K body mustang 5.0L fuel injectors, all fits except the height is taller, use longer fuel rail bolts and place spacer under the rail to get proper fit, Starts on first hit, no missing and bottom end is quicker. I bet they will last years longer than the junk that came in the unit.

Perhaps it is K-Series as in fuel injector body type, not a K body Mustang. Mustang fuel injectors are available everywhere and economical, and OP is stating what type (K-Series) they used.

Tagging this.

I will take some pictures for you this afternoon when I get home and post them tommorw.

Rather simple job overall if I recall correctly.

Also to add to the thread, these are the ones I put in my machine. $125 for the set. Bosch injectors. I have a couple years on them and they are still working well.

I could not find any instructions in my binder so I just tore my machine down to get you pictures.

You will need a 5/32 socket or a nut driver and a 10MM wrench or socket.

With the box lifted, the fuel rail and injectors are right on the top of the motor.

Start by removing the hose clamp and pulling line back to give you room to lift the fuel rail later. Line is dry so no need to have a bucket or anything to catch fluids.

Remove the two 10mm head bolts from the fuel rail (Blue Arrows)

Hose off and two bolts removed - fuel rail is loose now.

Pull the fuel rail off the top of the injectors (injectors are the green arrows) Fuel rail is just lifted and pushed to the side in the top left of the photo.

Pull the injectors out of the body of the motor and remove the harness clip (yellow arrow) Harness will pull straight off)

And that is it. There is your injector.

At 120.00 a piece they had better last forever

Hi.

I have been having the many issues as others have been posting about a rough idle and hard start after the machine is hot. I decided to change all 3 injectors with the Bosh (ford) injectors as many of you have done. I successfully completed this recently. The machine would not run properly after completion, also it was smoking (white) heavily. I let the machine run and allowed it to "burn up" any gunk that may have been in the cylinders. After running for 10min it was back to normal. The next day I went to start the machine and it idles extremely rough and is way worse then any other time before.
I am lost for ideas as I have changed the fuel pump (with the new design) last summer and all there plugs and wires were changed a couple months prior.

thanks
mike

as much as I hate to say it... new parts can be junk out of the box... hope not the issue for you, but don't rule it out

did you only have the white smoke the first time or is that a constant?
will it run well outside of the idle?
Have you changed the fuel pressure regulator?
Have you changed the fuel filter?

White smoke was only on the initial startup after the injector swap.

Is the fuel pressure regulator part of the new fuel pump assembly?

I changed the fuel filter about a year ago, should I try another one?

Fuel filters are cheap... I would start there every time if it was me.

As for the FPR... I think they are on the pump, but I cannot remember for life of me at the moment. Hopefully someone else can field that one.
