    A week ago, but forgot to post. Installed DPI Joshís new injector clamps. Awesome designed little part. Went in without too much trouble, though I had to smooth out the stamped part numbers on the injector to make them fit. And of course cylinders 4/5/6 are a pain in the butt to access.

    Iíve had a small vacuum leak around injector #5 for a long, long time now - these sealed it right up! And Iíll never pop an injector on start again (itís happened 3 times in the 12 years Iíve owned the car)






    Also, I installed the plunger seals around the rear induction vents. Went on super easy and look great. Very happy with the results.



    And then, topped up the brake fluid. The reservoir had dropped some due to pad wear, and the dash light started coming on. Good thing that sensor still works.

    That looks great! As an early car steward, I am also missing these and have always wondered if something went there. I never could find it in the parts manual the one time I did look.
    What part number was it if you dont mind?

    Yeah, lmao someone already replied but - there is no P/N for these anymore. They're literally off a plunger.

    Buy 2 of those, pull the black rings off, make a clean straight slit so they can be opened - then just pop them around the induction vents. Perfect match.

    The OE part is called a Sponge Ring. Shown as Item 21 in this diagram.

    The early cars had them as far as I know. They just werenít made to last. They turn soft and flatten out, then pull away from the tube they surrounded looking very sad. Until somebody removes them or covers them up as shown in this thread. These plunger rings look legit.
