Not to criticize, but that is a horrible idea.

If you bend the injector lines enough to do what you are saying you risk kinking the injector lines creating reduction in pressure and volume which could lead to reduced participation or an outright misfire, improper atomization of fuel causing the injector to clog then washing the cylinder down.



Bending injector lines is bad kids UH MMMMKay
