I had at least 3 of them stripped due to rust.  I just hammered on a useless
12 point socket that just looks like it might fit.  With a big hammer they
actually go on and not bad grip.  That's the only way I could get them off
without taking the head off.

This is the connection for the air shrouded injectors.From 1985 Model change
"All gasoline engines are now equipped with an improved second generation
version of air shrouded injectors.  A metal injector insert with tapered
threads and tighter tolerances is used.  A plastic air shroud is attached to
the insert and sealed in the cylinder head with an "O" ring.
The injectors have a special nozzle which is attached to the tip of the
injector and seals itself in the air shroud.  This nozzle directs the
metered air directly around the injector needle to provide more complete
fuel atomization."
They started putting them on 1984 CIS-E cars.
Best effect is during idle.

I would think they would have different mechanical advance.  As well as the
CIS-E has only the vacuum advance while the CIS has both vacuum advance and
retard (both sides of the diaphragm).
