That is a cleaning and flow testing service. They aren't flow matching. Matching requires a bunch of injectors to be cleaned and tested. Then the closest of the group are put together and run against each other to ensure they are all flowing nearly equal to the rest.

Unless I missed something, that link if only for cleaning and testing, not a true matching. Which would explain why that is a lower price than any of the vendors to buy matched from.

We have a vendor that has a large pool of injectors already in stock. We've been habitually getting under 1% match percentages across all 6 injectors. For less money.

Not a big performance gain, but for the car that is already modded, there are benefits.

I was the first, and we're probably approaching a dozen cars so far. Mine are 1%, boosty nailed the perfect 0% set last year.

FIE is owned by a friend of mine. www.onehotchilipepper.com

Special pricing for BC members only can be found in the Vendor'* forum. The advantage is you get documentation from a source you can trust. There'* no other way to KNOW what you're getting.

And there'* at least a dozen in the pool for matching now. Maybe more. I don't recall the last inventory count.

Yes, it does. Very nicely shows how one injector can skew the entire lot and cause fueling issues.

What I wanted to ensure was clear is that their site does not say match, it does say 1 set for $X. That would mean to me that you have to send mutiple sets to later match the best of the flow rates (if provided) yourself.

And Wren actually didn't tell you guys the whole truth..my spread is .000000%
