Don't bother. You won't gain anything from putting bigger injectors in your car. It's worthless and a waste of time.

Stock, that's true. He didn't mention if it was boosted or sprayed. To the OP, if you're stock, then yes, total waste of time, money, and fuel. If you've got some adders, then read on.

You are correct about the flow. 2005+ Ford Mustang injectors are 24lb/hr and are a physical drop-in. Great for mild boost.

Well in Manny's defense, it doesn't say boosted, just " a stock 2.0".

All it will do is run pig rich, and set a code. You'll be constantly borderline washing down the cylinder walls, and it will be blowing oil smoke in under 6 months.

A better question is why do you think you need larger injectors? Is there an issue, other than "Stock 2.0"?



It takes major bolt ons to even come close to needing more fuel. You would need to be past the 170 hp level.

You're at ~132 hp in stock form. To put it in perspective, the Magnum 2.0 easily made 18 more hp on the same 19 lb/hr injectors.

If you want to bump fuel delivery, due to an actual need, you could also go with a 2001 up FPR for a 9 psi increase.

1997 to 1999 DOHC 2.0/2.4 injectors were 21 lb/hr, but the PCM's also had a tune to adjust for them. Just like your 2000 PCM is different than the 2001 to 2005 PCM's in injector pulse width, using the same injectors, but 9 more PSI.
