Default should i get some fuel injector service?

ive tried cheveron fuel injector cleaner (synthetic) and i didnt feel a difference at all, so i think i should get some fuel injector service because i know my car has more potential power to it. Not in aftermarket parts, but in restoring it so it runs like new

I'd run some seafoam through the engine and gas first and see how that does

Most auto parts stores carry it, there is also a write-up on it in our DIY section

Best bet is to remove the injectors and have them ultrasonically cleaned.
I've done my 87 Merc Sable and 89 Mazda 626.
Both had around 120k.
Some disassembly required.
I replaced the valve cover gaskets on the Sable while waiting for parts.
Service performed here:

Fast turnaround, before and after flow documentation, $90 for 6 including shipping.
Magic performance restoration.
626 more difficult than Sable.
Careful not to drop parts in manifold openings.
