I pulled these .184 injectors out of my TDI and wanted to test them before selling them (yes I replaced them with .205s, and they are BAD ASS!!). I used a Kiene Injector testing unit, it applies fuel at higher and higher pressure until the injector fires. The injectors I pulled out had 20K on them, testing one at a time, they all fired between 3150-3200PSI or 220Bars, that is with in 1.5%…up to 5% is considered acceptable, they all had great patterns and appear to still be in new operating condition. I seem to be getting very good fuel locally and the injectors were pretty clean when they came out. I have pix of the injectors, testing unit and a video of the injectors firing, I’m not sure I can get the video to work so bare with me. To view the video right click http://members.home.net/e.lowe1/TDI_STUFF/tdi_2.mpg and then click "save target as" you can then open it or save it to your hard drive. It there is a better way to load it please let me know.
