Walnut blasting in SE Michigan

n54/n55 intake valve cleaning. With fuel direct injected engines carbon and oil builds up on the intake valves, causing misfires, lowering your car mpg, and robing the engine of its power and decrease in overall efficiency. Fix your rough idle issue, restore lost power to your n54/n55 engine, and feel the difference of increased acceleration. Its a night and day difference. I use a two step process by manually cleaning the intake valves and using walnuts to get a superior cleaning. Walnuts are completely safe and is the preferred method when cleaning intake valves. The process takes about 2-3 hours.Please contact me if you have any questions. Located in metro Detroit! I'm not a business or a business entity just an enthusiast helping other enthusiast!

lol, didn't realize that you were posting on here as well. Here is a free bump.

Couldn't hurt to post pics and related information.

Here is the link to the one that we did this spring at my place. This is probably part of why you are having a hard time finding people to bite, we got most of this group through in that run.

Best of luck,

Steve

Chris this service should be performed ever 20k-30k miles and no seafoam would not work and should be avoided. I have pictures of cars with the carbon build and up I tell you what I have to blast it multiple times there's no way that a consumer based chemical can out perform 100 psi.

Official Review:

My overall experience during the business transaction with Curtis satisfied 100% of the criteria of the exchange of services for currency: An intake valve walnut blasting. But, that doesn't satisfy my criteria for expressing all points of excellence. His place in a cool neighborhood where the front lawns are quiet because everyone is probably out back / on the water! I immediately felt relaxed and welcome hanging out while Curtis worked on my vehicle with care, insight, and precision. Good music playing in the garage, too. I am already in initial discussions with Curtis for further service, and other than doing the work myself, have not even considered looking for anyone else to perform the task. Plain and simple recommendation that I cannot reinforce enough!

Thanks again, Curtis!

-Robert
