The crazy ones are those willing to pay it.

If it's so simple then why not do it yourself?

No, they usually run a can a injector cleaner in the tank, then hook into
the vacuum system and run a cleaner into the intake which is sucked in by
vacuum. It looks like this...
This cleans the throttle body, throttle plate, valves, combustion chamber,
intake runners, the upper ring-belt area of all the piston chambers,
basically the whole top end of your system. I'd run a can of BG Fuel
Injection System Cleaner then run BG44K.
BG recently ran a '93 Mazda MX-6 to 310,000 miles with virtually zero wear
on the internals (ALL the internals) due to using their products. Here's the
