Fuel Injectors on an 86

I searched this topic and it hasn't been hit on in a while. I am looking for replacement stock injectors for my stock l-98. Where is the best place to find them for a reasonable price. Ecklers has them listed for $499 for a set of rebuilt ones and $80something each for new ones. Can i do better

If i were to go the larger injector route what specs should i be meeting before start thinking about that.

any help would be nice

1986--Flowmaster 50 series cat back, K&N air filter, C5 front brake upgrade, sloted rear brakes (all new system). Totally redone interior, seats, every switch haha.

Up next--Long tube headers and high flow cat. Possibly new rear in the future, and a new steering wheel to finish off the interior

PM Bob88 on this site. He has an extra set of injectors from his 88 I'm sure he would make you a deal on.

Ecklers is a decent place to buy stuff from if it is like a rare part or something. Fuel injectors are a dime a dozen. FIC is better priced.

You will have to get your ECM reprogrammed before you do those injectors otherwise it will smoke and run rough. LT headers are not enough to justify larger injectors. You would need a better cam, intake and a fuel mods before it becomes necessary. That is unless you are planning for future expansion.

What are your plans for this car? Budget?
