I have the 90hp version.

Also, I have a story and a question for everyone.

Story first
Last Tuesday I decided it was time to change the injector nozzles. All was going well until I broke one of the injector hold downs, and that caused me to break a nipple off one injector. 1 week and $70 later, yesterday I got it all put back together correctly. Now it is running better than ever with a noticeable power boost. My torque app is reading that my load percentage is down, and it takes less throttle to do any given speed. It use to be 33% throttle was 50mph, now it is 58mph under the same engine load (~50%).

Here is the question. The fuel flow rate per hour is still the same numbers roughly. Wouldn't the larger injectors flow more fuel per hour? And if so, shouldn't that have changed my readout?

The eclipse has retired, but I still like seeing it around
