    Do people do the fuel preasure reg too?
    I was also told today ( not sure how good an idea it is ) that it would be better if i connect wires to the injectors connections and while cleaning put power to it to open/close it for better cleaning?????
    Sound like a good or bad idea???

    Theres a guide on youtube were a guy hooks his injectors up to a switch and a battery, he then squirts carb cleaner into them while firin them up. I just chucked the injectors and fpr into my ulytasonci cleaner, semt todo the trick :).

    Is it worth doing on a 60k mile engine?

    It might clean the quicker if you can open them with a battery but serveral cleans in the bath should have the same effect. I'd recommend doing this on any car once a year.
