We have seen multiple vehicles in the community have injectors fail on pump gas, so the OEM fuel injectors are definitely a problem.Stock injectors can not handle full bore e85. I don’t care what AMS and Nostrum say, and I wish they were more honest and transparent about the issue. [...] I feel that these injectors can barely handle 93 pump gas.
Based on their live Q&A the other day, the fuel injectors should be for sale in one or two months; they are still testing them (AMS is meticulous with their testing, and they spend significantly more time testing products before release than anyone else in the industry).Nostrum through AMS are coming out with new injectors soon. I hope they work better than stock, but judging how long it took for Nostrum to come up with these injectors I will wait to hear from ppl who installs them to see how they hold up.
Pretty darn sure that AMS' leaderboard leading dyno run was a hero tune on pump gas or a 100+ octane mixture; I do not think they were experimenting with ethanol at that point, but maybe they ran an ethanol mix for a pull or two. Their Q60 has the stock direct injection setup, no port injection modifications last I saw it (which was after their hero run; when I last saw it they were finalizing testing of their FlexFuel kit on it). In fact, their leading dyno run was on stock fuel injectors -- fine for a few dyno runs, but how long with it hold up on the street like that?I’m pretty sure AMS on their alpha car has some kind of port injection and is not running on stock injectors at 800 hp or whatever they claim.
