    Fuel Injectors

    I've been trying to find what I believe is a vacuum leak and I think I may have found it. I think my injectors are not completely sealing and are letting in some air.

    Is there a size difference between the 98' 28lb injectors and the 02' 28 lb injectors?

    98's have the LS1 intake while the 02's have the LS6 intake. I ask because my fuel injectors have a bitch of a time sliding into the LS6 intake and have no issues with the LS1.

    I've seen no fuel leaks or have had no miss fire issues or any lean codes pop up yet.

    thats probably just because there differnt injectors, however, size should be the same for seating purposes.

    Have you tried the spray test to see if the idle picks up or surges?

    Carb cleaner or brake cleaner work good.

    O-rings may vary from 98 to 02. Both should work though. Use the newer part number (as with anything that is the same) from GM.

    I use a VERY small amount of vaseline on the o-rings prior to seating them. The ones I have on the T/A were very tight going into the LS1Speed rails and the FAST90.

    I don't see an o-ring being the problem here though. Do the carb cleaner test though just to be sure.

    Brake cleaner will ruin the finish on painted parts and make some plastics brittle. Your safer to stick with the carb cleaner.

    My Intake is painted that is the second reason why I won't used the brake cleaner. The 1st was what z28 stated.
