Re: Newer Fuel injectors

They are from a 1991 5 series. I just have them lying around and wanted to see if i can put them in. Definitely a cost saving approach lol. I also put in an adjustable fuel regulator cause my old one may not have been working properly

Thank you

Re: Cylinder head

Thanks for the info. Yeah I will be replacing a lot of that stuff while everything is disassembled. Do you guys know in what order I need to remove the head bolts? I want to avoid warping the head. Thanks again.
