BG Products Intake Cleaning

Posted in Blog, News by admin with No Comments

Oct2011 27

We are now offering an FSI intake manifold cleaning service using BG Products Air Intake System Cleaner. The process consists of (2) 11oz cans of BG Products Air Intake System Cleaner, injected into the intake air stream using the BG Inject-A-Flush apparatus, and (1) 11oz can of BG “44K” fuel system cleaner poured directly into the gas tank. The service costs $150 (labor and materials) and is recommended every 20-30k miles, or roughly once a year.

For engines that have a large amount of carbon buildup, BG also offers a 2-part Gasoline Direct Injection Cleaner.

This service is crucial to keep power-robbing buildup out of the intake manifold & intake ports on the cylinder head. On traditional port-injected cars, the fuel is sprayed into the runners on the intake manifold. The atomized fuel, which is a solvent, helps break down carbon deposits inside the intake ports and on the back of the intake valves. Conversely, on a direct-injection fuel system, the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber (cylinder). Direct injection allows for greater precision in the amount of fuel injected, allowing for more power and better fuel economy, but does not offer the intake port/valve cleaning effect. As a result, carbon buildup becomes an issue. This is not specific to VW/Audi engines, but to all direct-injected engines.
