This looks amazing!!
 
It's getting your fuel injectors cleaned with an ultrasonic machine!

Shows flow tests of before and after. Found a place that does then for $17/injector. Not bad at all

They put it in some bath and all the debris just fall off.... Amazing!
Here's a video

Couldn't get the video load, but I bet you could actually do this yourself a lot cheaper. My stepdad uses an el cheapo ultrasonic jewelry cleaner to clean the injectors in his planes. He's an A&P Instructor for the FAA with 50+ years experience so I think it's safe to say he knows what he's doing. :) Now whether there's a difference between automotive and aircraft injectors, I don't know.... but it would definitely be worth looking into before spending $160 to have someone else do it.

Well it's only just over $100 and from the video it seems well worth it. I ony plan to do this once, at least for now, so I don't want to invest in a machine to clean them

Just YouTube "ultrasonic injector cleaner"
