    I cleaned mine yesterday @ 46k miles & there is more improvement from that alone than there was from changing the complete manifold/egr - well worth it - Fiat egr mod next!!

    It's not good - you'd think the garage would've given it a clean when they swapped it to the new manifold less than a 1000 miles ago & 30k miles continuous use of Millers Power Sport 4 hasn't done it much good either
