The result: depending on how anal you are, you can get the port as clean as it came from the factory for ..under $50
Now the question of "is it worth it?" My car had no mods. It dynoed at 261 HP. After the cleaning 284 HP . You be the judge, but for me 20 who for ~$50 . I would say do and do it yourself if you can. I will be doing this once a year. I did full FBO + v3 but I drive around with the tune on map 0. The car feels that much better after the cleaning.
WOW.. thats impressive!

I went the walnut route and bought all the parts and walnuts. Was about 180 bucks for everything. I havent done the cleaning yet but will be doing it soon. I should have enough walnuts to clean 2 cars. Then all I have to do is replace the walnuts every other time. I will report back on the results.
