Looking for feed back on Lucas 42's. They are not the the 009's but do they work well and are there any problems with them or getting chips for them. Also, would this be a smart upgrade for me over my 37's.

Sure I know that I should go w/ the 50's but funds do not budget them at the time.

Are you sure they are not the equivalent to the 009s? They changed the number some time ago.

I have found them to be excellent injectors but I use the MaxEffort chips and Steve Y has the fuel curves nailed dead on.

I believe Red Armstrong has a good rep for them as well.

Equivalent to yes, but the guy said they were not 009's.

Would this be a smart upgrade in my quest for 11.90's

I think they are the same injector..give me the number on them, and I will tell you.

They are more than adequate for 11.90s...should be good to lower 11s

37's will take you to 11.90's. Dont waste your money on such a small upgrade. Hit 11.90 with your current injector first, then you will have enough money saved up for 50's, or the new high impedence 55's may be out by then

Agree with Bob...save up for 50s...post on both boards "Parts Wanted" sections for used 50s.

-----------OR-------------

Jack at Racetronix may have the high-imp 55s (actually 57s) now, or very soon.

More money is wasted from unnecessary micro-mini injector buying & selling than on FMs. HTH :)
