Exclamation carbon buildup cleaning at 71k miles - before/after

Had my carbon buildup cleaned by Juiced46. He did a great job - thanks again man! If you're in CT and need this (or anything else for that matter) done shoot him a PM.

Here are some before/after pics. My car has 71k miles:











After:




and a datalog... car seems to be nice and happy (pump 93 only, no meth):

My car didn't feel bad before, so there isn't any huge difference in feel. All I can say is everything is very smooth. I'll do some logs tonight

he was going to use the walnut shell blaster but they were out of walnut shells. He'd have to pop in and explain what he did, but he did it by hand.

How long have you been running meth? The before doesn't look as bad as others that have posted before and after pics.

I only ran meth for less than ONE month a bit over a year ago. Since then i've been methless, and the new PWM kit is sitting in a box right now. Planning on having it go in next weekend.

I've essentially been methless

Pretty simple procedure. Certainly a DIY.
