So do the late 10V engines - the MB uses essentially the same inserts
as the WR/WX, except they're in three bits, partly brass, and $$$.

I think just about all non-direct injectors actually try to play the
fuel stream onto the back face of the inlet valve.  The V8Q documentation
has quite a section about the dual stream injectors, which produce one
jet for the back of each of the two valves they serve.

I can't remember why fuel is aimed directly at the valves, but I know
I've seen somewhere that there's a very good technical reason.
