Need Help with a injector resistor

Post by sochino3 » Thu Nov 04, 2010 8:04 am

Does anyone know how much voltage the resistor drops the voltage down by? And why does the injectors need voltage drop???
any answers would be great thank you :heart:

And does anyone know the specs of the injector resistor in the piazza's?

5-7ohms is the standard resistance

Because unlike other manufacturers that use inferior hi-impedance injectors, Isuzu represents quality.
Hence they use low-impedance injectors.

Coincidentally I read an article on the lo-Z injector resistors today. (zilvia-How to add resistors for low impedence injectors)
Not that I like the calculation method - and even I would be less verbose than that. It doesn't even mention their power rating!
[ At least it's better than today's "electronics basics" forum that stated that in America, current travels from positive to negative - apparently it's the opposite for others because we use "electron" current flow. LOL! ]
IZU069 - ISUZU means a lot to me.
