Remanufactured Fuel Injectors - a good choice?

Are re-manufactured Fuel Injectors - a good choice?
I see some on eBay - the seller has good reviews

In general, do people have good success?

I tried changing the O-rings, from Acura, etc but no luck - it worked for a very short time.

A special ultrasonic injector cleaner machine will have the same result.Go to your dealer for that

There are good injector rebuilders that make a good product. They also “blueprint” the injectors so they all perform equally. That is the best situation for making a smooth powerful engine. That’s how most started. Can’t say if E-bay-ers have a good reputation or not. The internet is your friend.

How can ultrasonic injector cleaner eliminate leak?

An ultrasonic cleaner will have nothing to do with any leaks. Reman injectors are fine if they’re sonic cleaned AND reverse flushed.

I would clean and reuse existing injectors

watch next video on how to clean your injectors on a dime: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rk0tKtiVic

I did something similar, but used an air compressor to push cleaner fluid through: after only few sprays my multi-port injectors spray pattern changed from from few ports working to all ports working properly and symmetric spray pattern

you might want to grab some rebuild kit like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-HONDA-Fuel-Injector-Service-Repair-Rebuild-Kit-Orings-Filters-96-02-RKFS12/142139940315?fits=Make%3AAcura|Model%3AIntegra&hash=item2118335ddb:g:xMsAAOSwn25aBV9n&vxp=mtr

you would need to check for the kit for your specific vehicle year

youtube is also full of videos specific for Integra, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9x0d7deCMpk
