Question Clean injectiors or not?

The ed ghia has only done 85k km but since ive flushed every single fluid and changed all the filters, i wanna take out the injectors and get them ultrasonicly cleaned.

I dont want to use that injector cleaner crap in the tank because I assume it will loosen up all the crap in the fuel system and it wont clean the injectors.

Anyone done this?
btw its a V8.

It reccomended that injectors be ultrasonically cleaned every 80,000kms. Bottles of injector dont work, they're just an additive which helps gum them up even more.

Cost is about $20-$30 per injector from memory. If you're in melbourne i can recommend a good place for you.

Hi lads,

While on the topic of injectors - I use LPG more than ULP - for obvious reasons, and I'm guessing my injectors get a little bit dried out because of this ? My car has done nearly 160K so cleaning the injectors would probably be a good idea - where was the place in Melbourne that you can recommend ?

Thanks,
Steve

Might be worth asking the lads at Herrod Motorsport.

hehe - I hear ya mate ! Still, at least you have the opportunity to start with your 8 and work it if you wanted to, unlike me I have a 6, which I want to work pretty full on (all in due time) however, I just feel starting with a 6 is already a compromise :(. OK, I'm finished rambling - just had to say, that I love your ride !!

Cheers,
Steve
