    Default Do i need injectors?

    done abit of reading lately as looking to start doing some mods to my burg.

    some people say injectors are a must for any sort of tuning (im looking for about 230)

    my local tuner recons he can get it to 230 with a basic map (no hardware mods needed)

    i just dont know weather to go local or go to rabbid or courts but they alot more expesive and wont produce the same bhp as my local tuner has claimed ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    all advice appriciated

    Who is the tuner?

    In fact don't answer that please, saves dragging someone's name through mud. There are plenty of generic flash maps out there claiming 230bhp, do some more home work and decide for yourself, but why do the likes of the best mappers in the Country insist on injectors along with hardware additions to get to those figures?.

    Your car mate but I would strongly advise to do it properly.

    My advise would be get it done by someone who knows the cars inside out with all the correct hardware to safely run that sort of hp on a corsa. Plus don't chase bhp figures, that's just pub talk, it's the way the car drives after what is the main thing.

    Read this;

    In summary, strictly speaking no you don't need injectors for ~230bhp (plus supporting mods) if your standard ones are in good nick.

    But how will you know unless they are brand new or you have already wasted money on a rolling road session?

    Getting uprated injector is the safest option and will give more headroom for other mods later on, even if they become clogged.

    Maybe years ago when the "D" was a current model and everything was new it was a different story but now it'd be silly to take the risk, its not a lot for uprated ones anyway.

    Personally I wouldn't do it without injectors, and 230bhp with no supporting mods sets alarm bells ringing for me. Some people are running stage 3 hardware and running around 230-240.

    As someone else said though, numbers are more of a bragging tool. I've given some bigger power stuff a shock with mine, and also pleasantly surprised myself!. It's how it drives more than anything.

    I would highly recommend you go to a reputable tuner such as Courts, RS tuning, WG / Rabbid etc.
