Default Post P0171 apocalypse ll

Ok so the original thread was in the ride and pics section, but after an engine misfire the conversation quicklu turned technical. So heres the situation, I had finally gotten the bonnie runnin good again and had even managed to work in a few cosmetically pleasing performance upgrades, when outta the blue I get hit with a multiple cylinder misfire, specifically cylinders 1 & 5. The obd ll scanner pulled a p0205 which is an issue with injector #5 control circuit. Mechanic buddy suggested replacing all 6 injectors, but warned me that they would be expensive. Suggested having my stock set overhauled. Theres actually a shop here in town that will do all 6 for a little less than 200 bucks. So thats the plan for now feel free to chime in with any other suggestions.

swap your injectors around and see if the problem follows

RockAuto sells a matched set of 6 fuel injectors for $253.00 . Might be worth doing all of them at that price:

ULTRAPOWER Part # 6MFI250
New Multi Port Injector Matched Set of (6) Fuel Injectors;SUPER CHARGER (Only 4 Remaining)

$253.79
