    He said "approximately $1800". Now, I assumed he meant installed. Maybe he was just quoting the parts cost. I reckon I better check back with him on that.

    Changing injectors

    My '04 GMC 2500 needs injectors (202K miles). Got an estimate ot $1800. Does that sound about right for a new OEM set installed?

    Thanks, Pelican

    The pump came from Carport. Fuel lines look OK.

    The FPR came from Advanced Auto Parts. The sensors came from O'Reilly's.

    Guess I like to spread the wealth.
