Dyno before and after walnut blasting?

Has anyone done a dyno before and after walnut shell blasting?

I am curious if that buildup makes a big difference in decreasing power.

I think the main effect is on throttle response and overall longevity of the motor. I doubt anyone picked up a significant amount of HP.

Really depends how bad your valves are clogged up. I've seen people with some pretty awful looking intake valves & they reported gains between 10-20 HP. Not that it's a neglibile amount, but the throttle response & smooth power delivery are going to be much more noticeable.

How would dirty valves affect engine longevity?

I had a before/after done, but it was sitting on the dyno when the valves were cleaned, and I don't think it had any time to adapt to the cleaned valves...I ended up losing a good bit up top on the dyno, but felt much better driving it and the idle was rock solid. I never got back to see what it looked like after adapting.

Blue is before and red is after
