Hi there

Need help to install my rdx 410.

Bought them with toyota clips, at this point all good... what i need to know is: its just unplug the oem clips and wires, and plug in into the toyota ones or we need to cut the wires and weld them?

cheers and thx

But without knowing which is power, which is ground plus no point in just replacing the injectors, plus if you dont tell the ECM that they are bigger and to inject more fuel it is not going to help.
You also solder wires, not weld.

Soldering wires can be tricky if you've never done it before.

I was hoping they just unclipped and inserted into the new Toyota clips but the three specialists I asked cut and soldered them. Not a fan of solder in an engine bay especially so close to the heat source but glad I had them done as they feel smoother, quieter and got better mpg.

Mainly got them as my duty was close to 95% with my build, main thing to watch out for are failing Chinese knockoffs. Pay extra to ensure they're genuine Honda.

I bought mine from Cpl with toyota clips but now need to find toyota wires to solder them... not a fan of solder too, also tought would be just insert in the toyota clips but was wrong then.
Dam luck

Can you not get plug and play clips for these then?

Which would be easier than soldering :smile3:
Not if you've never done it before.

If your lucky they use the same kinds of pin connector which means just push the old one out, set it so it is ready for the new connector and insert.
Or cut the wire before the injector plug and crimp on new connectors and insert into the plug.

Just depends on how electrically savvy the OP is and if they have the correct tools.

When I did this on my EP3 I simply un-hooked the wires from the original clips using a safety pin, then poked them into the new clips?

RDX Fuel Injector Install - Hybridracing

They've made it look so easy, I need to swap my injectors and clips for different bigger ones and I was wondering how to change it all, following this will help.
Now I just need to know how to re wire the plugs themselves as the clips I'm using have already been cut off a car so have the 2 loose wires.
