Thanks again, Alex. My car drives like its new and it has 75k. The car's idle was smooth before the intake cleaning, but its now the idle is new car smooth. It also has more power. This was a very worthwhile investment.

I agree Alex, no time to adjust at all; the car definitely feels better in all conditions now though.

Here's the graph for anyone interested;blue is before and red is after; unfortunately the logs didn't save in my AP, so I can't say exactly what was going on...the after really makes no sense though.

Nope, there were a couple of short logs at idle speed, but nothing beyond that. I'm not too worried about it though; too happy with the results of your cleaning job to be worried. =)

You guys should have drove the car around some to let it adapt to the freshly cleaned valves!

I know cleaning my intake valves cured some timing drops I was experiencing.
