Vortec spider upgrade

Need to replace mine, but looking at various sites they show different part numbers. Anybody know the difference? They range from $250 up to $400-ish...

Re: Vortec spider upgrade

I use Standard Motor Products.

230 on Amazon:

243 on Summit:

You'll also need the upper intake manifold gasket, and you'll need the O-rng that goes around the fuel meter body.

Re: Vortec spider upgrade

The price?

The AC Delco injector is close in price to the standard

https://www.amazon.com/ACDelco-19210...70_&dpSrc=srch


Which ones are you seeing for 400?

SMP And AC Delco are both good quality.

Re: Vortec spider upgrade

Both of the ones I posted are the upgraded units, with the injectors out at the end. You can buy the old style with the poppets, but they aren't the best.

Re: Vortec spider upgrade

I checked again, and shows different brands. One was a "high performance" version, that was the one for $500-some. But the cheaper one will work, gotta be better than what I have...Thanks!!!

Re: Vortec spider upgrade

Every updated unit made is a Standard Auto Parts made unit. So no matter what name is on them, they are all the same. If you're thinking of saving a few dollars by buying on Amazon, you may want to give a consideration if there is a problem with it.

Summit is much easier to get problems resolved with than a fly by night operation may be on Amazon.

Re: Vortec spider upgrade

Amazon is super easy with returns. You can print a return shipping label from your computer.
