know any way to figure out which fuel injector it is? My car has 6 and cost right at 200 dollars a piece...don't really want to just guess and replace until i find it spending that kind of money.

Sorry, I looked again, seems that red glowing convertor is from a lean condition or clogged cat. Do you have a CEL on, and misfires? How does it idle? Check the fuel pressure.
