Upon further investigation, it looks like type1 and type3 injectors are different...oh fine. Knowing VW, that is very surprising. I wonder why?

Do we have a l-jet D-jet compare and contrast thread. I am interested.


I'll "use the search dummy".
So it all started when I wanted to get better gas mileage....

I believe we have no such thread.

D-Jet : meters fuel according to intake manifold vacuum, i.e. "load sensing".
benefit > vacuum leaks make it richer

L-Jet : meters fuel according to air volume only, upstream of the manifold/throttle plate, allegedly more precise.
benefitNOT > vacuum leaks kill it

Edit: cheapest I can find is $55 each...maybe I only need a couple? Only way to tell is to take the freaking things apart again.

Edit2: a guy on the Samba is selling used ones for $25 each. Am I taking a stupid chance?
This is not the place for the above.

This whole thread is about getting new injectors, or the reliability of new vs used, as well as cost.
Where do we draw the line? I am confused. I thought my stumbles would be helpful for someone down the line.
If this thread doesn't belong in Technical then please move to the appropriate place.

I hope I'm not going out of bounds here by posting this. Please let me know if it is inappropriate. I just want to try and help out Hambone.

You're right. Now help me out.
This thread is not a technical question thread, it is a parts procurement question thread that involves a Squareback. Where shall we put it, I will defer to your decision.
