Sorry I just assumed since you got new injectors that you weren't running them before.

That sucks, and I heard they were fragile but that's kind or ridiculous. Still am curious about those nostrum energy ones.

So i got some dynamat from a friend for free and put it in the rear seat, trunk area, where i always hear gas tank sloshing. Reviews are great on this stuff, debating doing the entire car, would cost 300. Its about and 1/8 inch of ashfualt like material covered with heat resistant aluminum type material. Just stick it on where u want.

The injectors work perfectly fine with those nipples broken off. Your right about them being ridiculously brittle. Now think about how your opel injectors are packaged when they are shipped to you. How sure are you that they are not already broken or cracked? It's not a seal, just a guide for the fuel which isn't really critical it seems.

If this is a car you are keeping for awhile, the sound deadening can be very nice. Especially on road trips where road noise and drone can be annoying.

And to hell with the weight, just add more power.
