I need a set of ID1050X's..

have a lead on a set with only 3000 miles for less than 1/3 of the cost. Guy is going ID1300.

Guy claims to have ran E85 and switching to super between tanks, but said its been consistently E85 for awhile.

I am only going to be running 93 purely because i'm not interested in a fuel tank following me everywhere..

any possible issues with the injectors? they need to be flow tested? and how would that happen?

If you buy them, clean and flow test them immediately. I would not put those in my car without doing that first.

Barker told me what you're getting them for, I'm expecting them to be seized up :rofl:

As long as he hasn't let them sit with E85 in them for a long period of time they'll be fine. Usually people have issues when they put a car away for the winter and never start it.

yep :rofl: the guy is a decent dude and actually already sold him parts before..thinking he may even send them and let me pay when they are tested...


so where/who can clean and flow test them? or need to be sent out?

Most shops have a cleaner. Speed might. Boostin does, so does R&D. Ive venture Sound Performance does, Koza probably does, etc etc.

They will be fine. I had my 1300's flow tested, but not cleaned. E85 had sat in them for months and they did just fine. Another thing to consider is that 93 will eat away at whatever deposits were left on there anyways.
