Honestly I only used the afid tester once by the request of tech assit hotline I did the afid test it came out fine. They wanted me to replace the injectors anyways and if that didnt fix to replace the ecm. It was a phatom random missfire it would start missfiring then suddenly stop. Very random I told my boss I dont see all the injectors failing all at once and that I thought it was the ecm. He said replace the ecm replaced the ecm car was fixed. This was the saturn aura which is a rebadged chevy malibu. The afid tester has a built in computer no need for the tech2 scan tool when using that. Its really expensive tester and a pain to set up and run all the tests it has. The older injector balance test doesnt use a scan tool ethier you unplug the injector harness from the injectors and plug the kent moore injector tester on each injector to pulse them. You can also use that tester to test transmission actuator/solenoids. As far as the gm clogged injector bulletin you use the otc pressure canister to run the car with cleaner plus put a bottle of chevron techroline cleaner in the gas tank.
