Spark plugs were showing that two cylinders were running lean. Idle was a little rough. Power would fluctuate during moderate load/acceleration. e.g. Freeway on-ramps.

After change, car idles more smoothly. Power is smooth and consistent at all RPMs.

MPG has not yet been tested for improvement. Even with the old injectors the car would get mid 30’s highway MPG.
