yep, I would do it.
Couple of dollars later and you have peace of mind!
The bullet fuse holder for fuel pumps is a common problem on the S3.

Your top seem like vinyl, as opposed to canvas?
Have you considered some type of "Flex Seal" augmented with an actual patch? Depending on the nature of the hole of course.
Otherwise congrats on your progress!

vinyl top, yes. But that's a project for another time.

Fuel system is number one priority now. I just pulled these for servicing, and will be replacing the fuel pumps, filter, etc. (Placing the order tonight). Far right injector is #1, and is the one I was grousing about in the "what did you do today" thread.

Did your hard seals stay in the head? Dont lose them or you will have to beg someone to print some new ones.. are you sending your injectors to Cruzinperformance? I highly recommend them.

Those hard phenolic or whatever seals are in the head, and, yes, the injectors are on their way to cruzinperformance.
I'm sure I'll have questions when my rockauto box o' pumps shows up and when the injectors arrive.

Awesome! Sounds like that battle is just about over.... post your chart from Cruzin when you get it back, I would be interested to see that!

Wow. Your injectors needed that! Although within their tolerances, #1 is the odd one out..... thanks for posting results!

Tell me about it. I have to believe it'll run a little...better. BTW, where are the specs?
Just calculated - pulsed test w/i 6%, continuous w/i 2%. It's a whole lot better than when I pulled them.

Sorry, I meant tolerances. I've thought a 5% rule of thumb is good, but figure I'd ask if there's something more definitive.

SkiBum, I didn't see where anyone jumped on your offer, I'm definitely interested if you have a hose list. I was contemplating this today.

Thanks!

Beginning to think this was a problem...
I think I'll take care of it before reinstalling my serviced injectors.
