I have a 2004 Honda Accord EX Sedan with a 2.4L I-4 with California emissions and 250k miles on it. I desperately need to replace my fuel injectors but the price is steep!
Can someone explain to me what the difference in the fuel injectors is, between the version for standarf/federal emissions, and California emissions vehicles? At this moment, I've been looking for info on them but can't find much... and honestly, they appear to be the same injector, just priced differently.
I know the difference between emissions types, but I want to know the difference between the injectors for those types of emissions. Honda gave me two different part numbers for them, but declined to detail what the difference was - other than $100 per injector.
Can someone shed some light? Thanks!!
Edit: As far as I can tell, the numbers stamped on the injectors are as follows: RH28 AAZT Z 90 degrees from that, on the side of the injector, is just "T" which I'm assuming means it's a model T injector - the part numbers from Honda are 16450RADL61 for the CA emissions injector, and 16450RAAA01 for the Federal emissions injector.
Honda and Rock Auto both list a separate injector for the SULEV CA emissions engine, Autozone and everyone else has only one, the model T.
Update: I've replaced the injectors with a standard "T" model, so far no issues that I can tell, and my car has lost 80% of its misfires... I still have an exhaust leak to fix and after that I should be able to tell if the emissions are good or not. Thanks all for the help!
