Yes +1 ^^^^

Flex fuel engines used larger injectors because ethanol has a lower air:fuel ratio(9:1) so more ethanol needs to be added to the engine that gasoline(14.7:1) for same air flow
The Flex Fuel computers are set for these larger injectors so would set Rich codes if you used Gas only injector size
