the injectors are easy to change,, just two bolts and pull out..

check out this instruccions from Steeda,

http://www.steedafocus.com/installs/...usFuelRail.htm

Hope this help..

Oh i will recomend to press the gas cut-off that is located on the passenger side on the panel. lift a lid then press the button and start the car until stop, if you for get to do this you can still change it, just get rags for the fuel that will come of the rail.

Re Mustangs - 302 is a 5.0, 281 is a 4.6

I'm curious how a Lightning MAF with 42#ers would do. I'm likely going to do Cobra MAF and Injectors (we have them ALL over our shop).

the lightning MAF will work perfectly well. as will a new MAF from Pro-M calibrated to the injectors you are using.
