I just want to upgrade my injectors. I figure it is simple, probably as simple as any other car. But I want to have accurate instruction and would like to be warned of anything that could go wrong and given tips that may make this (what should be simple) job any easier. Thank you!

Do you have a copy of WIS? You'd love it.

Very important tip:
Do NOT drop one of these when you remove your OEM injectors:

Most folks pull the fuel pump relay and start the car. It will run a few seconds on the fuel in the line until the pressure drops and is no longer adequate to atomise the fuel. Some fuel will remain in the line but the pressure will be minimal.

WIS says to start the car, then pull fuse #2. Took me about an hour to swap the injectors.
