Default Bosch/Ford Gen lll Fuel Injectors for the V10

Just finished installing the Gen lll Bosch/Ford fuel injectors with the 4 hole design in my 03 Ram V10. Noticible difference in the exhaust note being more crisp and also runs about 2 deg more timing at speed. This leads me to believe that the throttle is not open as wide which should make better fuel economy. More timing means less fuel. I have a ScanGuage ll to monitor the timing and other outputs while driving. The true test will be when I hook up the 5th wheel travel trailer. I will post results at that time. Love that V10 POWER!

Origionally I saw them listed on eBay from FiveO for about $480. This was a little steep for my truck budget so found a company called Motor Man Fuel Injection on a search of Google. www.injectors4u.com The injectors were cross matched and have the same specs as the origional equipment. Got 10 injectors for $382 incl shipping. These injectors have the Gen lll 4 hole design which should enhance atomization. Installation requires removal of the intake plenum which is not too bad once all the air intake and throttle body are removed.
