I stand corrected; I'm perfectly willing to concede that the CIS is controlling fuel pressure directly. Having had several apart, I can see that this makes perfect sense. In that case, just crimp the hose going to that injector, and hope for the best. I'd use something that won't damage the hose. If you do plug it, you probably want to make sure you also plug the vacuum leak that would be caused by taking the hose off of the injector. Let us know how this turns out...I actually have another use (non-saab) for CIS injection if it works good. Dave
