I can recommend D. H Automotive in bonnybrigg Scotland if any boys up here want to have the Walnut clean.
The service from Dave was excellent and i even got a courtesy car , the price was good and the result was amazing as engine feels more responsive and my mpg is better . 5 Stars
Extract page 1. ( Works on petrols aswell apparently although the guy said it tends to be a more noticeable difference with diesels as they tend to have a bigger build up of carbon/soot because of the diesel.)Think The walnut clean is different to what's been talked about here?
What car you going to do on?
What price are they talking and where in north London?
Not definite yet but gathering info...could be tempted.
S3 8P (2.0 TFSI), 56 plate, 103,000 miles.What engine, year, mileage is yours.?
How long have you had the car for?
I had mine done Saturday in Weston-super-Mare, car is a facelift 2008 2.0 tfsi with 100k, purchased 7 mths ago, it's certainly improved, crisper acceleration, smoother and improved mpg through the 200miles ive done since. Worth the few bob paid, I can always get the injectors cleaned if needed at a later date.
You guys think it’s better than terra clean. The response from terraclean suggests they can do a injector clean too, see below. Question I asked was it is it safe for TFSI engines....
“Hi, thank you for your enquiry. Yes it’s a totally safe and recommended treatment for this engine.
The inlet manifolds do get very bad on those engines, so we would recommend the direct injection clean before the terraclean process, to give it a thorough clean.
I hope this helps.”
Then asked cost....
“Hi, the direct injection clean is £95, and the terraclean process is £130 for engines 2.0 and over.”
Also contacted a ecc guy, will post reply in bit.
According to this thread (http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/terraclean-is-it-worth-getting-done.252732/) TerraClean is useless for TFSI engines. Carbon clean seems to be a better option with walnut blasting the best.
Hi,What MPG do you normally get. I get 20-25 when driving in the city and 35-40 on motorways. 2005 2.0 TFSI on 75k.
I agree, I could honestly say my car picks up quicker on acceleration and is smoother across the rev range, for 80 quid it was a no brainer, yes I could do with proper walnut blasting done and injectors cleaned at some point but I also need to find money for a new timing chain and tensioner and full service so it will do for the momentI doubt many people would have a before and after pic of the Carbon cleaning because if you were going to go to the effort of taking the engine apart for before pics, you'd probably just clean it while your there instead of assembling it to run a Carbon Clean and then take it apart again for more pics.
The idea is it is simple and cheap. Before and after pics make it far more difficult and less cost effective.
