About half way done with our walnut blasting group buy

Here are a few more before and after pics.... All customers seem to notice a difference in better throttle response and overall smoother engine after the valve cleaning!

Kevin: Since we're taking apart your car anyway and you have 60k miles, how about if we tackle the water pump too? You know, they go like clockwork between 60k and 70k
me: No, thanks. I scan for codes all the time, if the water pump starts going we'll schedule it then

fast forward to this weekend and with no warning whatsoever:



Thanks again guys for taking care of this emergency and fitting me in your busy schedule, much appreciated

I had this done last week and even though my valves weren't as dirty (@44k) as these pictures - there was a felt difference in the cars throttle response and smoothness exactly as described especially at low RPMs.
I took a lot of pictures and I'm planning to post a review. Thanks a million to Kevin and Alex - both great guys, very knowledgeable, professional and easy to deal with.

Another 335 getting towed in for a failed water pump/thermostat. This car had only 49,500 miles when it went out on him while driving. This is the 3rd water pump/thermostat we've changed in the last 3-4 weeks. Keep an eye on your car if you have 50k + miles. They normally fail between 60k-70k miles like clockwork on these e90/e92's. There is really no warning either.... yellow overheat warning followed by a red "pull over immediately and turn off car" warning within about a minute.

328's are included in this as well. It's due to the Electric water pump failing.
