Default Injector cleaning and turn around time

Trying to decide where to send my 550s for cleaning/flow testing. I know DeatschWerks is now supporting us so i sent Mark @ DeatschWerks an e-mail.
But i was just courious where everyone else:

Got theres done
How much it cost for what services
And what kind of turn around time everyone got from mailing them out till receiving them back.

There are dozens of places that do service online, WitchHunter, Injector Rehab, etc... typically between $15-$25 per injector for a cleaning/flowtest and paperwork.

I've sent mine to a guy who always includes some "Jesus Loves You" advertisement when he sends them back (can't remember the company, but somebody will chime in with it). He always hand-wrote on the flow-sheet some extra info on what exactly he did to each injector. They should come back to you labeled so you can match them up to the flowsheets... the highest flowing one should go in CYL#4.

They should have them back out the door to you the day after they receive them... 2 days at the most. Most also offer the option of overnight shipping if you have to have them quick.

Check with some of your boys local as well... somebody might be in the same boat and you can save on shipping or maybe get a few bucks off if you send him 5 sets or whatever.

Please support our vendors!
It's not very much money, either.

Wish I had pictures of how my 460's came off my RX7. Couldnt tell what color they were, or even see the basic shape of them. Tons of crud built up on them. Those look ok compared to some Ive seen.

Sometimes cleaning up the body of the injector is fruitless, but i do as much as i can to make them look as close to new as possible.
