Carbon/Intake cleaning in Houston

Has anyone had their intake valves cleaned, or walnut blasted as they say? I'm thinking about getting this done as I'm coming up on 65k and I can feel a bit of a stutter when pushing it hard and some vibrations at idle. For those who have done this in Houston, can you post where and how much it cost? Where you happy with the results?

Thanks!

We have a guy on the FB group that does it for $300. Let me know if you want his info.

I had mine done by someone else for $400 and it makes a huge difference. Fixed some timing drops I was experiencing.

Is there anyone who does this in Dallas? I was looking to get this done on my car and possibly on my S4, as well.
