Our '83 has them, it took about 500 miles to break them in, but they are incredible now. Engine is smooth, very powerful, very little smoke, and lunges with tons of power off idle...much better than with the old nozzles. I am contemplating putting them on my car as well at some point as mine has become sorta sluggish off the line and smokes more, though it could just be my secondary filter and valves....I'll be replacing/adjusting those very soon, so we'll see what that does.

As for temps, it runs at 80-81C 95% of the time, and has never gotten above 85 under any driving or outside temp conditions....same as with the old nozzles.

None of them leaked upon installation either....and haven't since.
