The real problem is going to be the flow rate and the pressure at which they flow at that rate. If these are different from your current injectors it will throw off your tune. The PCM can compensate a bit for this, but it'* best to use the correct rated injectors, or have the injector tables changed to the new flow rate.

I second Dan on this. 0.2 liters doesn't seem like much of a difference. If you want to try the swap, report back and tell us how it runs (we love easy mods); just be prepared to either put the old ones back or retune the computer.
