Default Are these injectors worth cleaning?

Hi guys,

I bought a set of Supra injectors awhile back from someone on m.net. They look pretty bad so I'm wondering if it's worth sending it off to test and clean.

thanks,

t.t.

I've seen worse....I'm sure one of my 6 same bad....it's nice to know that they working and flowing properly.

plus from the flow charts I've seen once cleaned they flow more like 315cc.

Look better than the ones i mailed in to have cleaned and they came out great. Go for it. It's not what they look like, it's how they perform and if they have internal leakage.

Nope, just sign that they were in contact with the open air. They'll clean them up a bit and remove alot of the rust for you.
