      Hey guys, just wondering If I can use G60 green top injectors in a 1.8t intake?

      Heres a couple pictures. Let me know if someone knows the answer off hand. I see there is a big difference between the 2 styles.

      The question is why would you do this.

      The only reason I would do this is because I have almost new g60 green tops. Is there a downfall of using them. Thats basically all I want to know.

      And obviously...do they fit?

      They are not optimal... Plus its old tech. Most tunes are not designed to run those injectors.
      But if you want headaches, go right ahead

      obviously it's not ideal.

      but, does it vary quite a bit in terms of flow rate and nozzle type?

      You should stick with whatever injector your tune requires to run correctly. If you're stock, keep with the stock ones. If you're running a bigger turbo tune, then use what ever the tuner suggests. Those G60's are probably low impedance OBD1 injectors too.
