Yes, but why do you think you need to?

Cleaner, if that is all you are going to do, then you will not like the results. The bigger injectors need higher fuel pressure and of coures it needs the correct computer inputs to tell them how long to stay open. Basically it is like putting in much bigger jets in a carb and start dumping in a lot of gas. You will not like it!!

the reason i was going to go with bigger injectors was because i had found a great deal on the 24lb injectors and I had to replace my old ones. thought if there was nothing else that had to be done to put thm in than i was going to do it.
Should stick with 19 than , eh?
