How to Install a Fuel Injector on a Chevrolet Corvette C4


The C4 Corvettes from 1984 to 1996 were known collectively as “the scientific Corvettes” and many innovations were introduced to these vehicles. In 1985, General Motors switched to Tuned Port Injection (TPI), their version of individual cylinder fuel injection. There were eight fuel injectors mounted in a fuel rail supplied with a flow of gas from the fuel tank under constant regulated pressure; additionally, there was a ninth injector for cold start. The fuel rail is located under the air plenum and runners. Removing an injector involves removing the plenum, runners and fuel rail to replace the old injector with a new one.
