    Default Preferred vendor for injector cleaning/balancing?

    Anybody have a preferred vendor they like to use to send their injectors for cleaning and balancing?

    I recently used rceng.com, based on TonyC's recommendation. It worked as advertised - the injectors came back nice and clean and I hadn't needed to buy those extra eight injectors after all because all the post-cleaning flow rates were identical.

    Of course, they could have just washed them, made up fake numbers then sent 'em back to me - how would I know

    What have you guys found to be the typical turnaround time once dropped in the mail?

    Mr Injector turns them around quickly, I don't remember exact time. You can pay for faster shipping if you're in a hurry. I think they use USPS flat rate boxes IIRC.

    Four times, three vendors, usually a 2-3 day turnaround is average with standard shipping.

    I have been using Mr Injector exclusively for about 10 years now.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.
    But obviously I just dont get it. -fatbillybob

    OK folks... bumping this thread since it's relevant to my interests (now).

    Are the replacement o-rings and grommets that Mr. Injector provides as good as the OEM rubber bits from Mazda?
    In other words... should I pony up for OEM Mazda bits in addition to the ASNU service?
    (Specifically P/Ns 13-257/252 and 253 in the attached diagram...)

    I've read things on both sides of the fence over generic/NAPA-source o-rings/etc.

    What say you, fellow Miata racers?

    I used the ones I got from Mr. Injector and everything worked and works as it should. I even transferred them from one engine to another with the used Mr. Injector seals with no issues.
