No. I just need new O-rings and the stealership wants $100.00 for 20 little O-rings. Absurd. I have a local supplier where I can probably get enough for two cars for $20.00, but the injectors are still in my car. I have a spare intake and valve covers I'm taking to the powder coaters today and when I get them back, I will need new O-rings to install the injectors in the manifold. The prices are higher on ebay. Cheapest I found them there was $120.00.
just remember they are not hardware store o-rings, a normal o-ring will swell up and break down from the fuel. they are 9.95 per pair (20 needed) at rock auto, so that dealer price of around a $100 looks pretty good.
considering it keeps the fuel in the engine, and not burning your car down...... $100 isn't that bad. they are brown o-rings on most i have saw, i know o-rings tend to be different colors for different chemicals. blue/green tend to be air conditioning related. black buna nitrate tend to be non-hydrocarbon
Got it handled. They are actually Viton. A local fuel injector service facility is ordering them for me. $5.00 each is ludicrous. When I had my FI 7 Vette, I replaced all the injector O-rings in it locally for $15.00. I just wanted to know the size so it would make it easier to locate them. Any retail auto parts supplier is going to mark up the price from wholesale. If you go straight to an O-ring/seal supplier, they are markedly cheaper for the same product.

I bought some at autozone. I think I paid $20 for 16 of them. Just bring one oring to them and they will match up the size.
As I said in the previously, the injectors are still in the car. Not only that, I wouldn't trust auto Zone for anything. If I had one each off the car, I would just go to the local O-ring specialty store. I used to buy mucho O-rings and seals from them for the oil patch.
