Actually I think that the injectors that are used with the air shrouding 
are very similar (if not identical) the previous ones.  The air shrouding 
effect is provided by the intake manifold and the inserts that hold the 
injectors in place.  

I haven't pulled the injectors from the 5k for comparison, but I have 
seen the inserts for the newer motors.
