Lol no point at all in the new injector as you will be using your injectors, intake, valve covers, timing chain covers, and oil pan if you go the cheaper route and get the ford fusion (same exact engine minus the parts mentioned) you can either clean your injectors or use any of them from your donor engine i left the fusion water pump on also as the mazda unit had a belt tensioner and i saw no point in changing what worked.
I got my engine locally from that AAA auto salvage place for 374 and no core. Otherwise a mazda 6 would have been 2600. Apparently the salvage yards are wise to the engine killers designed into the 3.0 v6 beast
- pcv failure - i just change mine every other oil change for piece of mind
- coil pack failure causing failing porcelain pre cat disintegration offering a free sand blasting from the egr recycling it back into the intake track causing like 40lbs of compression by eating the rings
I gutted my pre cats and blew the remaining exhaust from the rear of the car with a leaf blower to clear debris. When you do this you will need a pair of oxygen sensor simulators (i electrically made mine) to correct the check engine light.
I also upgraded my coil packs to the 4.6 liter cobra mustang units for 15 bucks a piece as they are 60000 volts compared to our stockers at 20000.
You may even get lucky and find a member local to you and have the swap go faster with the extra hands and knowledge. Good luck bud.
