I had my car in to a Acura specialist and they did something called an induction cleaning. It is where they ran two chemicals directly into the fuel lines and it created a lot of white smoke and a nasty smell. I felt a difference afterward in acceleration, but now I don't really feel the difference anymore. There was someone else that had something similar done when the place added some chemical to their brake line but I don't remeber who it was.

In general, the cleaner they run through the fuel system is supposed to clean the injectors. the backs of the intake valves and the combustion chambers of carbon.

The stuff they run through the power brake vacuum line is most likely GM Top Engine Cleaner. This stuff is supposed to remove carbon from the combustion chamber. It works and does make a lot of smoke and smells pretty nasty. You can get this stuff at any GM dealer parts counter. They used to carry two kinds; one in a aerosol can, another in just liquid form. If you DIY, make sure you're not in the garage and do it so the smoke won't piss off the neighbors.:mad:

Yeah, that was me who took it to Jiffy Lube, really the best thing to do to clean fuel injectors is to put in a bottle of Chevron Techron concentrate. But if you want to go the route I did, go to a place like jiffy lube or valvoline and ask them if they will clean your injector tips. I doubt that my friends procedure with pouring that engine cleaner down my brake booster vaccuum line was standard, but you can find out.

Hands down, BG 44K is the best fuel cleaner available. Ask any mechanic and they will tell you this is real deal.

This stuff is only through a dealer and not found at your local store.
