New Fuel Pump - Injection Service too?

So my '94 defender wouldn't start the other day. Got it towed to shop nearby and diagnostics pointed to fuel pump. So they're swapping that out and are suggesting I also have them flush the fuel injection system for $140 and clean throttle body for another $65. Not too familiar with this shop so not sure if this is all necessary. If I'm getting a new fuel pump is a full fuel system service needed at same time? Parts and labor and diagnostics just for fuel pump already came to $800 so it's getting pricey!

Thanks

You can clean your own TB and MAF for $3.99 with a can of carb cleaner. Flushing the fuel system? It is continuously flushed with one of the most effective solvents around -- gasoline.

They're trying to flush more cash out of your wallet. Tell 'em to flush off.

I agree with Tony... That said, a great product that I use and I've never had a fuel system or injector problem is REDLINE FUEL CLEANER, good stuff. Better than any of that STP/FoamofSeacrap/etc.
