I sent my injectors to Witchhunter, also. Quick turn around, easy to get a hold of, etc. He'll do your cold start injector, too. Think it was $70 for all 4 main injectors and the cold start with all new o-rings and gaskets. When I pulled them out I wrote the number of which cylinder it came from and he took the time to etch that number on the injector before cleaning them (which removed the Sharpie ink). I sent mine via Priority Mail on Monday, he got them Wednesday and sent them back out same day. Had them back in my hands that Friday.

Right on I was hoping to find someone cheaper than RC and didn't want to go through NAPA etc.

I'm not sure why they put the fuel filter where it is. I've -heard- that they put it there in the event there is an accident but I'm not sure about that.

I'd be interested in your results to relocate the fuel filter. It's a PITA to get to!

Yeah, it'd be nice if it was on the firewall huh? I'll probably just have my mechanic figure it out while he's installing my new engine as long as he's not going to charge me an arm and a leg for figuring it out. If so I'll definitely post up some pics and get a parts list together to help others.

When I did my engine last year I considered relocating the filter. I think the easiest place to put it will be the right fender, right above that removable section of fender skirt. There is a flexible line that connects the filter to the tank and a flexible line that connects the filter to the fuel rail and it seemed at first blush that they'd be long enough to work.

But ultimately I left it where it was. I have my A/C drier there. Also I didn't mind pulling off the upper intake last time I replaced the fuel filter (about 7 years ago), cleaning the throttle body and replacing the gaskets anyway. Just the way I roll, $30 filter replacement = weekend project + $30 filter + $50 in new copper washers, various gaskets, carb cleaner and vacuum hose. I'm the king of taking the simple and making it complex... Next time I do it I'm taking off the whole intake and cleaning it, maybe try and keep that black nasty gunk from building up inside.

X3 on Mountain High Performance. Had my 2F head done there. Great price and great to work with.

I will for sure as long as he doesn't try to nail me to the cross on price, I'm kind of recovering from a winter as a snowboard bum so money is tight to say the very least. I don't think he will but I'm already sucking up a longblock install and headwork so every penny will count.
