Exactly. Seafoam doesn't do sh*t for carbon buildup (as many Audi/VW owners who tried it have found out). Neither do catch cans, water injection and other gimmicks. The only way to clean out the deposits is by removing the head and applying lots of elbow grease.

N54 = direct injected = no fuel goes through the intake manifold = no fuel additive spraying against the backside of the intake valves.
