I remember seeing a connector that didn't have those wire retention clips but I forgot what car they were from. I think they just were a push tab/lock. Anyone remember?

I haven't done the conversion yet. Should have when I changed the injectors last.

7g 97-98 shared the same injector clips as the 2g's did.

I strongly suspect these are and having worked on Caravan's with these same injector connectors, Caravan injector connectors - quick release style.

Mine came from Ebay and had some portion lightly sanded so no one would know the OEM the came from. They were cheap, so I bought them right away because I wasn't aware of
the pick and pull yards in my area anymore (which were around unbeknownst to me just a 20 min drive away).

I've got them if you are interested in new ones:

These are a good match to the 2G ones found in 97-98. Mitsu only used these for a couple years before going back to the earlier style. I probably would use the earlier style connector if I was doing a harness, but I've had enough people ask about them that I sourced them.

I believe this was discussed on a old thread here, but if you are using the genuine Mitsu 2g type, you can de-pin the terminals from the 1g style and insert them in the 2g. No need to cut/splice etc in this case. The terminals don't seem to fit exactly the same, but well enough I have never had any connection issues or pin-push out.

Brad, do you know if they actually use different type pins from 1g--> 2g?

Mentioned your products just a day or two ago, to a guy trying to get his 1.5L Mitsu running - same 1G style connectors due to identical Denso connections.
He said he was wiggling his connectors and he got the car to fire, so I have him checking for the green death. Anyways, I try to send people towards your connectors whether direct or through the companies you supply.
Thanks for popping in Brad!

Quoting iceman69510:

They are not the same terminals between the 1G and late 2G style connectors, the connectors are not even from the same manufacturer. Whether or not you can use them, I don't know.

Spoolinup was selling another squeeze type connector that was similar to the 2G, but not the same. You could use the 1G terminals in that. And I think it was a cheaper option.

I've seen the downsides of using the wrong terminal in a connector. Improper terminal retention, poor contact with the mating connector, etc. I would be wary of doing that, but I am sure Spoolinup has done some real world testing on this before saying it is OK.

Before doing that, I'd consider using the 1G connectors, and making a quick release connector somewhere else inline.

Edit: I think the pic that Flying Eagle posted, shows the Spoolinup type of quick release injector connector. It is slightly different than the 2G.

Quoting G:

I don't have pigtails for those available right now, sorry. But I do sell the connectors in sets of 6 for the 3000GT crowd, that is on the website.

I just found some in my stash. I thought I had bought some new ones with pigtails years ago but couldn't remember. Perfect fit for a gt-r.

What year GT-R? Must be an older one, because that type of injector connector with the rubber boot extending off the back is a really old design.
