Default Why you should clean your injectors!

Check this out. Two of the things didn't flow at all before service, the 4th had a mediocre flow pattern. After service they are within .8%, which is close enough for me

None of them are quite up to 460cc, but they are close enough to get the job done.

Woah! That'd be a sad way to kill an engine. I'm definitely getting this done before I put mine in now.

Damn. I thought I had gotten jipped after my injectors flowed nearly the same after being cleaned (all over 460cc with good flow patterns), but now I feel better about the peace of mind.

Its hard to tell if injectors are good or not
if they don't say cleaned and come w/ a flow chart, I wouldn't assume otherwise

Yeah, you did actually... The other two weren't needed yet. I'm going to send them out to get cleaned for spares later, but didn't have the cash on hand this time. I sent them with this shipment incase one/two of the first four was a complete dud, but didn't have them cleaned.

Phew, glad they could be salvaged without busting into the 2 spares.

Yup, I had the same problem with my 550's. Two were completely shut and two had a terrible flow pattern. Sent them off to Witchhunter and they are as good as new.

So does that mean you are offering an injector cleaning service now?
