    Nice one steve. Just dropped them a mail to see if they offer the same service to people in Ireland. Fingers crossed anyway.

    This is what I usually use ASNU ... company that makes the flow bench machine has a really good database of all the peoples in your area who have one of their machine. I just found the closest person to me and called them up. Charged me about the same price $15 per injector.

    Sorry to sound thick, but which currency is that; AU$ or US$ (I appreciate it could also be SG$ or similar)?

    I only ask because US$15 is currently about £9.50, and that seems like really good value!

    And this is why the owners club is the only place you need to be for info on GTiR's!

    Admittedly I haven't tried to take mine out, but they seems to move freely in my fuel rail... or maybe that just means the seals have gone.

    As others have said, na, easy.
    If you have a front mount intercooler, easier.
    Without the intercooler in the way, disconnect the two fuel lines, one on the Fuel pressure regulator and the other on a pipe.
    Remove the 4 bolts holding the rail and gently wiggle and lift the rail.
    Sometimes the injectors will come out still attached to the rail, sometimes 1 or 2 might stick in the throttle body.
    Be careful that no muck drops into the injector hole, so as soon as the injectors are out cover or plug the holes.
    If you are having them cleaned and flow tested get a seal kit (with baskets and pintles included) installed as well and they will be almost like new.
    If I missed anything please fill in the steps.

    PS. When installing injectors with new seals, they may be tight, so they just need to be gently massaged into the rail and the throttle body.
