fuel injectors and fuel rail

Will injectors from a 2000 (return type fuel rail) work on a 2002 (non-return type fuel rail)?
Relatedly, is there any way to easily adapt the return type fuel rail from the 2000 to a non return 2002?
I have a brand new set of OEM 2000 injectors (and fuel rails) that I would like to use, if possible, in my 2002.

2002 injectors have 4 spray holes giving a better spray pattern. If I were you I would have the 2002 injectors pressure cleaned & tested & sell the 2000 set. Why risk a engine fire from leaking fuel?

+ 1

RC Engineering will clean them (ultrasonic), flow test and flow balance for about $25 (..?) each and will take a couple of days, and this would be a great time to replace the high pressure fuel hoses too :-)

Makes sense and that is the direction I'm heading. Thanks Gilles and BYprodriver.
