Tank. That is what the instructions say. Hope that is okay.

Tank is fine. That will clean your fuel system out. Be sure to change the fuel filter soon after as all the crap gets caught in there. That can cause the fuel pump to gum up like mine did. There is a filter element (basically a mesh housing) that surrounds the fuel pump. Over time, debris will get caught in it and cause your fuel pump to fail. Better later than sooner.

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.

2003 SE 5spd SPI with 110k miles, with brand new custom CAI (has a 6x10.5 Spectre filter pics are on my profile) and FS 2.5" race exhaust. Its a brand new car and i use STP complete fuel system cleaner every 3000-5000 miles along with STP oil treatment and STP octane booster or Berrymans octane booster when I feel my car start to lag a little ;)
