LEXTREME LEXUS FORUMS HERE! - Post Questions Here For Quick Answers!
Just want to share this with our visitors and members. As if you are not familiar the Lexus injectors. When I am saying 1UZFE, I am referring to Lexus from 1989 to 1997 and 1998-2000 would be different. The Lexus LS400 got the gray colored tip injectors and they are rated at 220 cc/min.
However, the SC400 or the Soarer got slightly little bigger injectors and they are rated 251 cc/min. Both of the injectors are good for 6 psi of forced induction.
However, if you want little more than 6 psi of boost, then you would need to get larger injectors. The cheapest way to upgrade stock injectors is to get stock injectors from different cars. What we discovered was that Toyota Supra from 1988 to 1992 with either the Yellow or Lime Green color tip would work pretty well.
They have very similar impedance as our engine and almost the same plug. The Yellow Tip was rated at 295 cc and the later years (lime green) was rated at 315 cc/min. They are great for direct bolt on upgrade. Remember, you will need to run a 10 ohm resistor for these injectors (7MGE-Yellow Tip). They are low impedance.
After reading those articles now you should have a pretty good picture why and what you need. In this article I would like to show you how to modify the Supra Yellow Tip to directly bolt on to the 1uzfe engine.
Here is a picture of the two connectors:
Side by Side comparison of two injectors and clip guide
Here is a close up picture of the guide
You have to cut or grind these guides out in order for the stock clip to slide in. Final product after cutting.
Here is how a stock 1uzfe (LS400) looks like.
Here is Supra Yellow Tip with 1uzfe clip.
As you can see, the clip is directly bolt on and locking too. This upgrade will give you few additional psi and idle should be fine. The stock computer should able to compensate.
