Injectors, 2 hole replaced with 1 hole?

Okay so i have a dead fuel injector in my toyota avensis.
Can't find a new replacement part in any of the usual part stores. One junkyard sent me 4 used ones but they were with a shorter nozzle so poor power/bad idling with those.

So, to the question, finally. My car has got 2-hole injectors. Will it work properly with 1-hole injectors? Aliexpress and amazon sell one hole injectors. Also ebay seems to have loads of one hole injectors that fit.

On the other hand, this would be a good time to try 12-hole injectors. Has anyone here tried "el cheapo" -injectors from aliexpress or similar?

I'd rather get reconditioned than cheapo.

You just don't know what you're getting from cheap injectors - I'd probably buy six knowing that two might be faulty

Reco 12 hole aren't that expensive - well worth the improvement Jeep owners report.

I think late model Toyotas are four hole - should be able to get low km used ones.

There are also services that reco injectors that can make up direct fit injectors so you don't need piggy back harnesses.

You car should run fine with single hole injectors but possibly slightly less efficient. I wouldn't go backward personally when there are so many upgrade choices.
