haha, this is one funny man.
In all seriousness, any and all Direct injection engines are suffering these issues. I believe the Mistubishi's are by far the worse?

install a watermeth basic kit and never have the issue again..

or buy a car without a bulls**t Direct injection engine.. and have intake ports and valves that look as new as the day they were installed

as long as Direct injection engines exist this issue will exist unless they factory install the Auxiliary injector in the intake plenum to wash the intake / Valves. (then this kind of defeats the whole idea of Direct injection.

because the fuel mixture bypasses this part of the intake there is nothing to eat away/burn off carbon and keep the intake clean... not even Catch cans or any other marketing bulls**t will stop this effect.

Direct injection is a marketing Farce....

WaterMethInjection assists in cleaning off existing carbon and acts as a "boost cooler" and "octane booster" but this is another conversation all together.

16 hours labour + about $150 of materials. Drives so much better..as other people have said, past 5000 RPM you're really noticing the extra power.

Who did it for you? I am keen to get mine done too. Also...thought I saw you on Stancombe Rd on the weekend...but no personalised plate anymore?? (Otherwise there is another black Avant lurking around this side of town just like yours.)

Heh, Audi V8 cleaning keeping my brother in a job :P

I wonder if stuff like Seafoam or the Subaru upper engine cleaner would have any effect if used regularly?
