    Default Inlet manifold gunk, Will '10K Boost' shift ?

    Guys,

    Got the EGR off, it ha been cleaned recently, & the valve moves freely. BUT, I did notice that the inlet manifold side is solid with gunk!!!. I scrapped it out gently with a screwdriver, god knows what the inside of my manifold looks like. Will a dose of '10K Boost' help clean the inside of the manifold? Car has done 48k miles.

    Regards,

    PS just also cleaned Boost sensor, it was also gunked to the max!!!

    be very careful scraping the gunk out incase you leave any lumps behind as they get sucked into the cylinders and can cause valves to not seat properly.

    I wouldn't advise trying to clean out the manifold with 10k boost, its good for light soiling but what you can see in the end of your manifold is only a FRACTION of the thick gunk.

    You will have to remove the throttle body and physically remove the gunk from the entrance to the manfiold. Tbh at the best of times I'm dubious about spraying these cleaning agents into my manfiold. A good few on here have tried it however with good results.
