some help installing my fuel system...

How hard is it to install injectors, jre eforce fuel rails? Im sure theres a general DIY somewhere for general LS injectors.. Ill look it up. Did cam swap myself so thatll tell ya how mech inclined I am. And for the zl1 fuel pump do I only have to drop driveshaft and exhaust to drop fuel tank? And can i do that on jackstands or is that out of the question? Thanks.

Injectors are a PITA to get in and out. Technical? No, but they'll fight you for a little bit. Rails are simple too, few bolts and they lift off of the injectors. Also, relieve the pressure in the rails before you pull em.

Just pull the old injectors out being careful. Clean up the holes if necessary.Push the new injectors in being careful. If the new ones don't want to go in, you can use some lubricant such as a tiny amount of oil on the orings to help. You will know when they are in place. Then tighten down the bolts, nuts etc for the rails and reattach fuel lines.

Some people will place the injectors in the rails first and then install them into the intake. Just go slow and be careful.

For the pump, you have to drop exhaust and driveshaft, and lower cradle or remove cradle, undo tank straps to access the fuel pump area. OR you can remove your back seat, and being EXTREMELY careful, cut an opening to reach the old pump. There is a thread on here somewhere that has measurements and tips to do that.

You can do either on jackstands. My Squash setup was done in my garage on jackstands.

LPE's instructions to install their pump. Same basic steps will be followed for any installation of a pump.

LPE instructions

Easiest way is to cut the hole but I understand why many people won't do that.

I cut the hole and made a hinged door. That way it is easy to change the pump should I ever need to. To cut the hole you need special tools. Do not use any kind of oscillating blade cutter or you will be replacing the tank. There is less than an inch of clearance.

so im about to do injectors...they came with crimps and little o-ring seal type things. I thought they were plug and play when it comes to installation? They must be for different connector types? ID isn't answering the phone right now.

The O-rings are to replace your old ones from the old injectors. The crimp connectors will allow you to splice the supplied injector connector into the Camaro factory wiring, however, I'd of thought they would have sent you application specific injectors, as in not having to hack the factory wiring harness.

Access hatch will make fuel pump swaps easy for the next time you run out of fueling.
