    Anyone used 10k boost to clean their inlet manifolds??

    after looking at the throttle plenum thing and look into the manifold, its looks dirty and the oil breather seems to go in there,

    has anyone used 10k boost to clean the inlet?

    should i disconnect the oil breather?

    Noooooooooo dont do it, you will just flush all the crap through your engine!

    Best think would be to remove the parts and clean them with carb cleaner.

    10k boost is just carb cleaner with a different name.

    Used it loads of times, helps to remove the carbon deposits and made my car idle smoother

    Agreed with this.. while rebuilding my corsa plenty of times i sat with the Inlet manifold in pieces cleaning it.. would rather do that then have the engine suck in the crap i just cleaned off it as soon as it started up..
