What year and engine your d-max is makes a world of difference when it comes to injectors, is it an lly(04.5 and 05) or an lb7( up to 04.5)!

Yeah the lb7 are much harder than the llys if its an lb7 the8th digit of the vin# will be a 1 or for lly it will be a 2

LB7s require the valve cover be removed:( , LLYS dont:) !

Good Luck
