new injector for car. Lower,lighter,less frontal are has to reduce air drag and few features to reduce number of plumbing fittings. Nozzles behind flys are for primer system and richening system if need to drop temp some. Rail in intake used for top half of fuel system instead of 8 line,nozzles,jets and distribution block.
