Bosch Injector 160lbs/hr

I'm interested in these injectors to run methanol though.
Bosch PN: 0 280 150 846

Are these rebadged to accel PN 74160
and Ford motorsport PN XL3E-C9A

Has anyone had experience running these injectors

I run them, with gasoline, and racalibrated/modified factory Ford EFI.

What do you want to know?

They are low impedance and will require good engine management and tight control / resolution at idle.

When used with the right injector driver (low impedance, high opening current), the minimum injection pulsewidth is around .400ms, making them very streetable.

My blown 429 idles at 4ms with 42lb/hr injectors and at about 0.8ms with these. With .4ms being the floor, managing idle at .8ms is easy.

Talk to your EFI people and make sure they can control a squirter this big...every tick of resolution on an injector this big changes fueling 4X as much as with a 42lb/hr injector. Not every engine management system has sufficient pulsewidth resolution to make these run well at idle/cruise. If you're just drag racing it, fear can get them to work.
