It's an interesting tool, and I can see its merit, but it is far from the tool, or results, of the professionals.
For $17 an injector, Paul at Hurst Injectors cleaned the injectors in an ultrasonic tank, which removes all the deposits. Some deposits don't respond to solvents alone. He had to clean mine twice to get the results he wanted. He then flow tested them on his Bosch injector machine. So, for a less than the cost of the tool, the injectors were completely cleaned, and flow tested. All the injectors flowed within 0.5% of each other. As I said, a big improvement in smoothness and power.
Now, if the injectors on your car are truly buggered, well, then the tool above will make a difference and improve the situation. But improving the situation is not the same as achieving the best result.
That tool might get them completely clean, and might not. Further, there will be no measurement of cleaning effectiveness and no guarantee that the injectors will flow the same when complete.
This is a case where a professional really does make a difference.
