cleaninjectors.com treated me very well. I had a couple bad injectors, and they held onto the good ones until I could send some more, and they found the 4 best-matching injectors of 8 total that I sent. All without charging me any more than regular price. I think it was ~$63 including return shipping.

Cruzin performance did it for just over $60. Something like $14 an injector plus o-rings and ****. Pay for the testing first, even if they're used; mine tested good to start with so I just wasted the money on the cleaning.

Have you guys tried looking locally? I live in a pretty small city and I've got a local guy that does my cleaning for me.

URL for cruizing performance? So far Affordable looks good.

Just for grins, how close are the flow rates between your injectors?

after servicing, exact to within 1%

some were good before servicing, but some weren't. it's worth doing.

+1 for witchhunter.com. I sent my injectors off on a Monday and had 'em back on Friday. I spent about $74 for 4 injectors including return shipping.

****. Mine were good to within a couple percent, but now after cleaning one is high by 5%. How bad is that?

Another for Cruzin Performance (cruzinperformance.com). Rich is a pleasure to deal with and provides quick turn-around with complete specs.

So, say one injector is a little better flowing than the rest.. put it on #4 cylinder for some extra insurance?

Thanks for all the great leads.

I think affordable is still the leader in price, $50/set + $7.50 shipping. I'm sending three sets so price matters a lot.

I've reworked my rail but will put the highest flowing injector on #4 too.

Yes. Having them numbered when service helps with placing them in the fuel rail.

I used cleaninjectors.com
Served me well and cost me around $65 after all the shipping costs.
Think i'll try witchhunter or someone next time for the hell of it if i ever need to.

I use marren. They are very good. I think it costs $100 for all 4 shipped and everything. They have done the injectors on several of my race cars with very good results. I road race with SCCA and have owned/driven formula fords, spec racer fords, spec miatas, spec rx7s, and as camaros. Marrren is injector.com btw.
