PSA Racetronix Injectors...Caveat Emptor!
#1

PSA for Racetronix 120 pound low impedance injectors.

I had never heard of Racetronix, but I saw several people recommending them for injectors here, so I ordered a set of 4 of their "flow matched" injectors for my SVO while re-doing the entire setup (new engine, turbo, fuel system). After over a month of pulling my hair out trying to get an all new combo to run well enough to back down the driveway, I started pulling injector connectors and I found the car ran the same with both the #3 and #4 connectors pulled. I removed all of the injectors and put them on an injector flow machine to find that two of them were completely dead, one was firing at about 50% capacity and one was functional. Since these were brand new and had about an hour of driveway time on them, I contacted Racetronix via email. I received a call within 5 minutes, was assured they would be returned for a refund and to expect a call from the owner. That was 7 days ago. No call, and no response to any additional emails. So, I figure they are not going to make any effort to stand by their product.

Just thought I would pass this along to anyone who was considering Racetronix for fuel injectors.

If you haven't done so already ~ perhaps you should post your experience in the "Vendor Experiences" section? . [Image: confused0024.gif]

Sorry to hear about your experience. Unfortunately you get what you pay for when it comes to injectors. When the price is too good to be true it's because they are offshore knock-offs. Even in the "best case" where they are all functional, you can plan on flow varying by 2-3x as much as a quality injector that's not even flow matched or 4-6x that of flow matched set of quality injectors.

I bet there is a vendor on this forum that sells quality drop-in injectors from 550cc-2000cc for 80's and 90's Fords...

Well, these were not really super budget injectors. They were $265 for the set. For example, a set of popular TFS injectors is $290 or so. I bought a set from FIC for $365 to replace them, quality injectors that are flow tested, matched and come with a full data sheet. The reason I bought these was they came recommended by several posters here, I would have gladly spent $100 more for a no-hassle set. Now, I am worried I glazed the cylinders in this new engine with all of the driveway time wasted chasing basic tune issues.
