Fuel Injector cleaning

Anyone know of any good local (Hampton Roads) shops that do fuel injector cleaning? Next time I remove my plenum I'd like to take them somewhere to have them cleaned. Especially if I can get a good deal from someone. Not really interested in doing it if they charge more then 20 per injector though. Can buy new ones for about 35 a piece at rockauto.

Yeah I've done that, but when I took my truck apart last weekend I saw that the injectors were just covered in carbon and grit. So I want to actually remove them and have them cleaned, then reinstall them. It's really not all that hard to get to them.
