They're not something to 'mess about' with! :)

The spray pattern needs to be checked using specialist test kit.

You need SDi Injectors out of an intercooled ROVER 200 bubble or a ROVER 400 bubble.

You can also use injectors out of the L-Series Freelander, not as harsh as the SDi units but more poke than factory 25, 45 ones.

The Parts Bin (2001 ROVER 25 1.6 S)

A long time ago, I owned a 220 SDi and the previous owner had had a Superchips upgrade installed.

According to their website, it is still available:

I know it doesn't exactly answer your question about modding the injectors, but I thought I would mention it anyway :wink3

I don't understand how you can add 30bhp but no torque. :S

If the engine is the same as the Peugeot 306 2.0hdi 93-01 I can do a 39bhp+58lbft stage 1 map as long as it runs the same Bosch EDC15C2 ECU

L series diesel is a Rover designed & built engine, nothing to do with PSA

The R8 diesels , 825 and Metro were powered by Peugeot engines but the rest are Rover engines (and 75 was BMW but we don't want to mention that :) ).

I never did understand why the R8 wasn't powered by the L-series because it fits nicely, due to being based on the T-series
