Gen1 Fuel Injectors

I have been searching the internet trying to find out if the injectors from a gen1 Honda Insight will physically fit a 1998 Civic HX? I am not asking if they will flow enough or not, just physically fit, connectors also, but mainly just fit the rail and seats? Appreciate any help.

Why. This question serves absolutely no purpose. The insight injector flows 145cc, the HX is 240 or somewhere around there. The computer would not be able to compensate for the fuel needed.

Agreed, my fellow furry.

If the insight injector had a lot greater atomization and tolerated a higher fuel pressure compared to the HX injector, it would compensate the injector size difference. But this ain't the case.

Honda used a lot off-the-shelf stuff in the first insight, so they are probably not giving any benefit.
