injectors - what can be 'swapped' in?

I'm curious, I looked through the 'parts swap' list and didn't see a replacement for injectors. I have one that is running way too rich and I thought maybe I should replace all of them (160K miles), but the cost was ridiculous from LR. The injectors look fairly 'standard'.. is there a replacement I could more cost-effectively swap in?

I got mine from these guys, ended up being local and did a hand-delivery to me. Their sales rep Julie is quite helpful, and dug though the interchange listings and such to confirm they would fit beforehand.
They also have an e-bay store, and the cleaning service seems to be much cheaper if you go via e-bay.
Or just e-mail Julie via their website, and tell her "The same ones as Hans with the Land Rover"

The ones I got were Ford FOTE-D5A injectors. Number 280150943 and they fit like a glove.
No core charge. Almost every mid-90's Ford used them, nice and common.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.

some more info

Taken from
Purchasing original Bosch fuel injectors (part number ERR722, rated 23.67 lbs/hr) from the Rover dealer isn't inexpensive. In fact, even at your local discount auto parts store you can expect to pay almost $100 per injector. (Auto Zone lists GP-Sorenson part number 800-1151N at $96.99/ea. They come with a one year warranty.) Mainly for this reason, Range Rover owners have been seeking cross-references to other usable injectors for years. The internet message boards contain several (typically dramatically less expensive) cross-references (e.g. Bosch/Ford 0280150561, Accel 158021, etc.)
