    I will soon be purchasing some Genesis 380cc Injectors (if you have a set of 4 you may want to sell, let me know!) So, I've done my searching and have gotten most of my questions answered. My tuner has a program for a K04 with 380cc injectors at 4 bar (AKA, 440cc/min). Most people have run 3...
