You can also disconnect the vacuum line on the intake manifold and suck it up into the intake and cylinder head that way, although it bypasses the injectors and goes straight to the intake/valves to clean the carbon off. Also, try some in your engine next oil change.
Here is the video. I think I may have fixed the tick I heard but I think you are all correct in that the injectors and everything else just make a lot of noise anyway. Thanks for the help and you're welcome to others who may have this problem and this helped you.
