walnut shell blasting /intake cleaning

did this on my own car over the weekend and all went great .bought the adapter ect and the valves are spotless .car definitely feels smoother but then again this is the first time I have driven it stock in three years
point of the post is if any local would like to have this done pm me .
if you need references or pics just let me know there are plenty of people on here who can vouch for me .

looks like 300.00 lol the forum has dictated this for me ruff crowd . I started at 350.00 thought it was reasonable considering the dealer cost 700+ and indy shops where 450.00 or more . doing the"sharks" car this weekend maybe he can give you guys a review after.

can tell you my car is running very smooth im back to my e50 +meth map and it idles perfect. took a few days for everything to settle in the first day it felt almost worse but mind you I only drive my car 2 miles to work and back car never even gets warm but a day or two later it feels like new.and very happy I did it.

pulling the intake and using walnut shells to sand blast the carbon build up on the valves. or at least that's how it should go the sharks car today was a nightmare to say the least . 90,000 + and had never been done it was nothing but 6 ports full of tar and took all day ! but car is done looks great and he is happy .
