It will be "stiff" in places, thats the compression building up as the piston reaches tdc.....

not 100% sure but would imagine you'l need x16 injectors as they will flow more fuel. could be wrong
hope this helps

injectors are the same, x16xe has bigger ports than the x14 but x14 can be used.

difference wont be noticeable IMO.
