NorCal : walnut blast recommendation

Just finished my OFHG job and while removing the intake manifold, my valves and port looks full of carbon. Do you guys have any recommendations where to get walnut blasting done? Located in the EAST BAY

Did you guys find a shop? What about the one recommended above in Sac? I couldn't find one and ended up driving down to SoCal to get it done.

trackspec autosports in Fremont is my go-to shop. They do walnut blast and coding and are the most meticulous mechanics i've ever worked with.

I don't think they do WB anymore, but yes, very meticulous and clean shop. Highly recommended.

I ended up doing it myself using a combination of intake valve cleaner, gun cleaner and gun cleaning brushes. It's actually a very easy job, just time consuming. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or need help.

Nice. How did you end up cleaning the intake manifold?
