I got Ivo to swap on the AR catlless DPs after the valve clean, the car has almost no turbo lag; throttle response is amazing (reminds me of my 350z); idle has no more shivers. I should have left the DPs for next week, then I would be able to tell what is the exact effects of the Valves being that clean.

It rained hard while i drove home yesterday, the rear of the car went out so much.

Ivo is a great dude , nothing needs be said besides I got my self a new permanent mechanic and a friend.

Did a great job on my car and even managed to take a look and fix a couple of mistakes I made on my DP and coilover install I did myself. Had fun hanging out with him the whole day, lol.

His cell doubles as his office phone, so CALL IT!

That would be the best and only way to get a hold of him!

But here is his address:

Columbus Automotive Services
Ivo 416-882-1439
6741 columbus rd, unit 11, mississauga

Would this procedure help to reduce rough idle? I have 108k on the car.

I was in to see Ivo today. Had him clean my intake and valves today. Job took 5 hour in total. He let me observe the entire process. His attention to detail is amazing!

The difference I felt afterwards in the car was absolutely noticeable!!!!

And at about half the cost of the dealership and a much superior job I am sure.

I have 71k on my car. I can honestly tell you that the differnce is unreal. I wouldn't have believed it had I not had it done. For the price, I will have it done every 75k as part of changing my plugs.
