Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.Yes. The sleeves must be cut anytime the injectors are removed and installed. There is also a tool to press in the injectors as well. When properly cut and pressed no compression will get past an injector.Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
