You can get them cleaned, tested and adjusted here:

SouthBay Fuel Injectors New OEM and Remanufactured, Injector Cleaning and Flow Testing Service.

Me and a few PT guys had them done there with great results and is only $60 for all four.

What makes you think they are clogged and just for giggles, what plugs and wires did you use? Also, what did you gap the plugs at? It should be .040 or less.

Also/also, Is that a "fart can" I see in your profile? I'll heed my mothers words on that one.

Just looked at the receipt it only says iridiums I have to close the gap on them a little I'm not sure why I didn't when I put them in what's the easiest way of doing that without damaging them?

Guess they stopped teaching punctuation in school nowadays.

If "they" never changed the plugs, it's a good chance "they" never changed the wires either. You should have put a new set in with the plugs. The injectors rarely fail but can get plugged up. Throw in a bottle of Chevron Techron into the gas tank. You didn't say your having any problems so why suspect the injectors are bad?

As far as your "fart' can muffler; if it's the type that's almost see-through with very little or NO back-pressure, that can lead to problems on it's own. The PT engine needs a certain amount of back-pressure to run well.

I don't suspect the injectors being bad just curious is all I take great interest in anything that has to do with an engine. What would you suggest as far as mufflers go a thrush, dynomax something along those lines? The people I'm referring to as "they" are the people from the collision repair shop

DynoMax is good I have one myself but if you like the way it sounds and there's some sort of muffler inside the one you have, that will be good enough to create the back-pressure that's needed.
