:rolleyes: so i was in my brothers pos cavalier the other day. He had just put in big venom injectors into his car. so the damn car felt like a rocket compared to how it used to feel. my question is if i put in bigger injectors will it hurt my car. also does anyone make bigger injectors for the 2.0. or can i get some from a 1.8? just wondering any help would be appreciated

It'd be a waste. Your ECU will adapt to the injectors and reduce their on-time. If it's too much adaptation it will throw a CEL. You won't get much benefit if any.

It depends on the size of the injectors you add. the beetle's ECU w/cooperation from the MAF and O2 is made to adapt ; but it has limitations at which point the ECU throws up a red flag and says "something's just WRONG".

I don't even know if your fuel injectors are weak. Heck they might only be on 40% duty cycle.... You really ought to do some research first before throwing parts at it. Figure it out like a system, what you're going to add, what those will actually accomplish (quanitify it, EXACTLY what will that next mod do? And how will that affect the difference sensors?)

This ain't your poppa's V8 that runs on gravity. It's a highly measured system of strings and pulleys and fans and pistons. Designed to be somewhat self-aware of what's going on, and what it's doing so as to prevent a catastrophic breakdown.
