I need a political solution to my racist fuel injection problem

Along the lines of cleaning injectors, did ANYONE ever
see this tool? I worked for a time at European
Imports on Rt. 10 East in Whippany, NJ. They had a
tool that worked like this. You screwed the injector
onto a fitting. Attached to that was a chamber filled
with a cleaning solution. I don't know what the
solution was exactly. There is a lever that's a hand
pressure pump. When you pump the lever you pressurize
the cleaning solution and force it through the
injector. The injector is aimed into a clear tube, so
you can watch the spray pattern as you go. It worked
really well. I literally watched horrible injector
regain beautiful cone shapes within 1 minute of
starting. This device had a label on it, so it was a
commerically manufactured device. Size was about 3-4
inches wide, 16-18 inches long and about a foot high.
This was more than 10 yrs. ago and I didn't much care
about work OR import cars at that time.
