high impedeance

this is basic, are you sure you'll be able to switch the injectors? where did you get injectors from, what size and whats done to the car?

I am switching my fuel injectors and I was wondering if the IS takes Peak and Hold or Saturated Fuel injectors.

fuel injectors

putting in a TO4E turbo, 255 Walboro fuel pump and etc. with 550cc RC Engineering fuel injectors (I havn't purchased the injectors yet). I assume the IS would take Peak and hold injectors? Just double checking. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Peak and hold are low resistance injectors. GTE just told you IS300s are high impedance (i.e saturated).

Low impedance have the advantage of faster recovery time so you can push them harder and get more out of them. You can make these work but you will need resistor packs in the power side of the injector harness so you don't burn up the ECU or EMS unless your EMS can handle high or low. Our ECU cannot.

Re: fuel injectors

my post above says high impedeance, which is saturated

are you doing this kit yourself?

Thanks for answering me. I assumed I would do the Peak and Hold with the resistors. Thanks for confirming it, I appreciate it.
