[Es2] Help! My @#$%!!! fuel injectors are trashed

Hi Chris,

Marren has tested the injectors and will send a complete report with 
the test pressure and flow specs.

I've decided to go with the injectors from Ractronix, they should be a 
nice fit for my 3B with the mods I'm adding. Will also install an 
adjustable regulator to better match the new flow rate of the 
Racetronix injectors.

I'll get the original injectors back from Marren and will have four 
good ones that have been tested and cleaned. If you want one, let me 
know. I'll let em go CHEAP!

Anyone else need an original 3B injector or two?
