Default Injector Seals?

OK, I'm boosting the civic this weekend and I have a quick question about injector seals. Following the 450 injector install in the projects page, I bought the new injector seal kit froim NAPA and it says to bore out the seals with a dremel, but the seals fit over the 450s just like the seals that are already on them. Do I even need these seals or what? I'm confused. Someone please clear this up for me. Thanks.

Unless you already have a D16Z6 intake manifold with stock seals in it, yes, you need them.

Dremel them out until they fit. Takes 15 - 20 minutes tops. Not a big deal. Just trial and error until they fit over them. Take a little off at a time, not too much. Oh ya, and they get hot while you're doing it.

Yeah, I'm rocking the Z6 setup already so I don't need them? Cool, hopefully NAPA will take them back, thats $48 more for the project!

Holy ----, they charged you $48?

They would fit on the injectors fine, but trying to jam them into the intake would be a bitch.

Yeah they fit on the injectors, but they freaking barely budge into the intake manifold without a good deal of boring out. My friends that I just put in still stick out a bit.

I looked this up on www.napaonline.com and they're charging $8+ for P/N CRB212089 (injector seal kit). Is it $8 per injector?

yeah, 8 bucks per injector :P it comes with all the seals/o-rings for one injector, but still a rip off...
