    Most people use 10k boost cleaner stuff!, im sure they must sell it on the bay!, part the air pipe by the dipstick, do not put anything in the air box or before the map air flow sensor

    found the how 2 for you!

    Usually,when you are going to do the "10k" de-coke,the spray is directed through the intake vent at the front of the grille,(or so I am led to believe),so I presume if you want to use something to clean your inlet manifold that's where you would introduce it. However,I hope you understand that any gunge/crap that is dislodged from the manifold will make its way back through the system,(including your turbo vanes!!),before it is burned and expelled via the exhaust.I don't want to alarm you but I thought it best to make you aware of the process etc. FELIXX.

    I can highly recommend you use Wynns EGR cleaner on the throttle valve and Intake.
    Its worked wonders for my engine.

    Its available on ebay here: http://shop.ebay.co.uk/jam100673/m.html. The guy delivers quick and sends instructions.

    If you want to use it just take the big hose off the throttle valve and spray straight into it in bursts until the whole can is empty.
