cmcautoservice.com in PoCo has NW's old machine usually 25-30/injector depending on how many times they get cycled through the cleaner

coming out of my 4runner

now is this "cleaning" the same as being rebuilt?

I'm in a toss up of having my current ones cleaned or buying OEM rebulit ones from the states

also i know i have one that is failing and giving me bad misfire....the cleaning isn't going to take care of a bad injector especially if its the electronic component of the injector

ended up ordering a set of rebuilt OEM injectors from these guys https://www.fiveomotorsport.com/

seemed like the best option getting OEM rebuilt units vs new ones, easy shipping to a friend in the states, no core charge etc

Well depends on what's your definition of rebuilt? There are certain things that can be replaced, the o ring around the injectors etc. But the valve itself is encased in plastic. Cleaning just runs the injectors though a washing machine with a conveyor belt much looks like an industrial dish cleaner. It forces solvent in and out of the valve to "clean"

For my application BMW i6 or various vintages, a V8 and a V10.. the cost of a "rebuilt" one from 5-0 is only 10% difference from a new one from other stores. I just stick with a new set.

Shop around and it helps you know the model you are looking for.

I had a failed injector on my E30 325i.

I had to shop around, but discovered (for my application anyway) that the cost to replace them with a rebuilt set cost as much as a cleaning, so I ended up getting a new rebuilt set to take out any guesswork out of the entire equation. Most local shops told me to drop dead because they weren't interested in doing a cleaning for only 6 injectors and plus, I couldn't afford the downtime of 2 weeks.

I went to NW Fuel because they were close to me.

They replaced the seal/gaskets and strainers/filter baskets on my injectors. Turnaround time was 2 business days, they also provided a before/after flow test report.

Once they are all done, they vacuum pack the injectors to protect them. It was roughly $30/injector.
