    Anyone have experience of a carbon clean aiding performance/economy/general driving?

    I have 100k on my 2.0 TFSI, B8.5. Engine is remapped with APR stage 1 and has followed at longest Audi's recommended service intervals. I have used Shell or Esso premium fuel since owning it (almost 3 years)

    Thanks,

    The Hydrogen carbon cleans are just Snake oil and a Complete waste of time. you need to have proper manual/walnut blasting carbon clean.

    Yes I was researching the full head removal approach.

    Any experience/impact you can share?

    I have the B8.5 2.0 TSFi engine and mine has has 2 sets of injectors 1 set are direct and the other are behind the inlet valve so cleaning is not required

    I have the same derv as you. And assumed the same. However when my mech was replacing waterpump he took off the inlet manifold and took a photo. It was pretty caked in carbon with a very small clean patch where the second injectors cleaned it. So it's not a completely cleaned by injector. I'll try and get him to send me the photo.

    Thanks
