This would be an advanced level repair to the DIY. You will need to have special tools and you will need to make sure that the injectors will seal.

The new injectors will be made of brass instead of the steel ones that are in there.

The injectors are mounted in plastic insulators, these & the idle balance tubes (rubber) should be replaced as well. Over time this type of material gets brittle & that creates vacuum leaks & idle problems
