I have a hardened nozzle and from what I've read I just need to wipe the PEI with Windex or similar so that it won't stick too much.

Do I have that right?

With your hardened nozzle you will perhaps have to increase the Temperature by a few degrees.
And make sure you use a release agent on the PEI print surface.
Espacially the Carbon PETg is very sticky.

Try it first on a small object and lift up the live-z. You will see how well it sticks. If it's already too much, use hairspray/glue stick or tape for larger surfaces. Otherwise you will damage your PEI sheet pretty fast

Also slow way down until you're familiar with it. Easiest is to adjust Max volumetric speed under Filament settings->Advanced. PETG is normally 8. Some carbon filled (XT-CF20) is 1. Start somewhere in between and increase it as you have success. I had several hard clogs before I figured this out.
