    Guess I will have to remove the injectors from my 88 Supra and manually clean

    Nick,those injectors have very fine screens where the fuel enters the injectors.Depending on the size of the engine you will likely find the ones closest to the return line partially or fully clogged.Its a simple matter of cleaning off those screens and reinstalling the injectors.Replace the...
