Through our partnership with RC Engineering we are able to offer professional fuel injector cleaning and balancing from the best in the business! We chose to work with people who have been the best in the business for over 30 years. Simply buying a machine and saying we could clean injectors is not what our customers have come to expect from MiataCage products, so we partnered with the best!
The purpose of cleaning and flow-testing is to
- Remove any contaminants inside or outside the injector that impede fuel flow or degrade the fuel spray pattern.
- Accurately measure each injector's fuel flow ability.
- Acquire quantitative data on injector performance the vehicle owner can use in matching injectors or tuning the engine's fuel system.
This can be done with cleaning/flowing your specific injectors, or swapping out yours with already completed injectors that are on the shelf and ready to ship. Your choice!
Price is for cleaning and flowing of 4 Miata Injectors and requires that you send us your injectors for the cleaning or core swap.
Read on below for more detail on the process:
Any set of fuel injectors will benefit from MiataCage and RC Engineering's clean and flow service, This is even true of new injectors because the individual-injector and system-total fuel flows must be known for performance tuning purposes. It is not uncommon for a set of original equipment (OE) injectors to have an unacceptably wide range of fuel flow and it's possible to even have new injectors that do not function properly. RC's standard testing process identifies those problematic injectors.
The test process is as follows: first, your injectors are installed on custom- designed-and-built, computer-controlled injector flow-testing equipment. A unique, non-flammable, gasoline-like test fluid is pumped at a precisely-controlled pressure through the injectors while they are pulsed by injector-drivers built into the equipment. The volume of fuel passed through the injector is accurately measured for a set amount of time and from those figures, fuel flow is derived. During the flow- test, the injector spray patterns are visually inspected and analyzed by technicians using both bright room and strobe lights.
After the initial flow-test, your injectors are transferred to an ultrasonic cleaning machine and connected to injector drivers. They are submerged in cleaning solution and pulsed while being subjected to ultrasonic waves. The combination of the solution and the ultrasound aggressively clean the internal and external parts of the injectors.
