Takes longer then usual because of the way the soot cakes onto the valves and cylinder head and having to clean the intake manifold also.

Comparing it to the N54/N55 which a lot of known shops do it for $200..... it ain't so cheap, but yeah it's cheap I guess. I think Speed Logic had quoted me $800-$900.

You cant really compared cbu cleaning on a n54/55 if you have never done the cleaning and know what it takes do it correctly. N54/55 dojnt include replacing the vcg either...

You donít want to tackle yourself? Not that big of a deal can buy the nozzles and port attachment adapters online I think I was all in at $350-400. Tank , walnut, blasting crap and gaskets
Did at 88k and will need to do again 180k now and building up Bought a wifi boroscope camera too , just to make sure intakes had no leftover media in the intakes
Just saying Not hard.

I would love to try to tackle it myself, I'm just unsure what exactly needs to be done as well as ensuring I'm doing things the right way. When it comes to car repair I'm somewhat novice. I would be fearful of really messing something up
