I didn't think that the cold-start injector was designed to get fuel evenly into each of the intake ports but simply to make the fuel mix richer to help the engine fire easier when it's cold. If a cold-start injector is being used like a '5th injector' it's never going to be very efficient at giving each intake port an even increase in fuel mixture. That's my understanding anyway. 8-) Craig. -- Craig's Saab C900 Page --> http://nospam/~c900 Sydney, NSW Australia Craig's Saab C900 Workshop -- For all Saab C900 Enthusiasts world-wide! http://www.nospam Come and explore our site, and check out our web-forums, mailing list, etc.
