Re: Fuel Injectors (NAC VW Fox) - cleaning

Worse comes to worse, JC Whitless had my CGT injectors for about ~$25 a 
piece a couple months ago.  Although they did send me the right ones, 
they've messed up at least one thing in every order...  (Beware).

But, dunno if they're the same injectors or not...
