180 was the cost of the part only and there was VAT on top.

I just phoned Rob at ProRig Marine

I just phoned Rob at ProRig Marine this was a while back so not sure if prices may have gone up.

216 is still a good price, how do you go on with the co-efficients, are they supplied with the injector or do you have to find a tame dealer?

I never got as far as buying one, however I was under the impression that if you could get hold of the coefficients you could upload them without the bootstrap tool, however I think this might have changed probably to stop amatures from fettling, mithering and just generally fiddling ;-)

I would have thought that if supplied new, the data would be supplied in the form of a lable of comformaty otherwise there should be a stamped number/ letters on the side of the injector. There must be a unique code on each injector, this should either be or cross referance to the data needed for calibration.

That's how vehicle injectors work but on the Land Rover ones I have done the injector code is programmed straight into the ECU. Hopefully the E-TEC has something similar. Will have to ask over on the other side.

The co-efficients are programmed directly from the diagnostic software, you don't need the bootstrap. The coefs are quite complex & not just a straight forward number. You can use the software to look at the coefficients already programmed into your emm for your existing injectors. They look like 4 quids worth of lucky dips for the euromillions.
I've attached the coeffs from my No1 injector, bear in mind this is the data for just 1
