You can buy ultra-sonic cleaners from places like Jaycar - I'm sure you could source them without any problem :)

Isn't that how they are cleaned when you take them to a workshop to be done?

The jaycar ultrasonic cleaners aren't powerful enough to clean injectors. My local injector cleaning place tried it and it did nothing/very little to a set of injectors that we tried.

Save yourself the effort and take them to a injector cleaning place they will clean it for you, if you take them out yourself you save about $150.

Yeah, might do that ... in the process of making a custom intake at the moment, I was just pulling apart one of my old mainfolds, and saw the injectors had crap all over them ..
