I'm conflicted about if when the carbon cleaning gets done, if I should pull, clean, and reseal my injectors while I'm in there. It's like what, about an extra $100 for the tool kit and reseal kit, and an extra hour of time?
You've got the pre-2019 R injectors, they'll probably last a decent while on pump gas.

I guess the other tip I'd say, which I just thought now, is to just buy new runner plates. They're under $5 each lol.

Seriously. Those things were nasty.
That's a good find, I look at some other places and the cheapest I found was $10.54.

That mini attachment set is pretty neat with the hose, I have the Shop Vac brand for a few years now, best thing ever for small spaces in the car.

Between that one and this one, you can clean almost everything in your car.

How’s the Quiet Tech? Was thinking of getting a California Air but they have Kobalt locally.

Quiet 🤣

For real though, very satisfied with it. It can't be heard outside of the garage. Like @dtfd said, we were able to have a conversation with it on. You know those little 12V air compressors people keep in their cars too fill tires? It's pretty close to that.

Opening the drain valve and draining the tank is far louder than the compressor itself.

A lot of people will shit on my for this, don’t care. The Fortress line from harbor freight is extremely quiet. I can be in the basement and run it and no one upstairs will hear it. I used it for my kitchen reno. Over 4000 staples and 100 or so brads and didn’t miss a beat. For the price and the noise limits it’s well worth the money.

I'm very much pro-HF. In this case though, the comparable Fortress one is more than the Kobalt one, even more so since I got it off FB marketplace.

Harbor freight has it's place. I got my 12 ton press there, walnut blaster, grinder stand there. Their power tools and hand tools/wrenches are pretty wack. Had a breaker bar that almost killed me when it snapped but lesson learned. The Daytona jack I have from there is the best jack ever. I'm still a fan

you use that press to make rosin?
