yeah he showed me they were cleaned he put wd-40 inside the injector and opened the valve thingy with the clip and used a compressor to spray out the wd-40 and it looked really good.

Can VB be set to automatically ban anyone with "drift" in their username? I think that would solve a lot of problems here.

Did you ask him to define "cleaned"? Were they professionally cleaned or just him doing some half *** job? Did you request the flow sheet?

I wasn't aware of the WD40/compressor trick, but I wouldn't lend any weight to that demonstration being an indication of a good spray pattern or how well they're matched.

Unless he's your best friend and you would trust him with your sister... I wouldn't pay $110 unless he had the documentation from the "cleaner".

Check RX7club.com in the (2ndGen 86-91 Parts) forum:
