    M156 Fuel Injector failures

    Just thought I would throw this one out there and see if anyone else has had any Injector issues. Basically over the last few months I have had 2 x fuel injectors fail on my C63 (5 year old with 29K on the clock running a Stage 2 Weistec Supercharger for the last 11K miles) The first failure...
