Intake condition at 38k miles
Posted 06 July 2012 - 04:14 PM
I then removed what I think is a MAP sensor on the top of the intake to scope the intake and valves. I've read about the catch can concerns for the GTDI engine so I wanted to see if there's much merit to the concern. I'm no expert here, but I'm not seeing a need, at least not by 38k miles.

Here's how the exhaust filled my garage after the SeaFoam application:
And here's one of the intake valves, shiny clean:
Now the top of piston #6, notice the carbon build up around the edge is gone today:
And finally a close up of the center top of the piston. The machining marks are even visible:

I believe he said went thru the hole under map sensor. The map sensor sit on very top of intake manifold held on by 2 torq screws I believe T20.
That's the hole I went through to insert the borescope camera, but not where I sucked in the SeaFoam. I'll take a look at my SHO in a bit and see if I can figure out where I connected to put the SeaFoam in.

Overview of engine showing the area of interest:
Close-up of the vacuum port and my little hose contraption for sucking in the SeaFoam:
And here's a shot of the hose set up that I use for the SeaFoam.
I connect the rubber hose to the vacuum port (friction fit) and make sure the valve is closed. Then start the warm engine and open the can of SeaFoam. Insert the other end of the valve contraption in to the can of SeaFoam and slowly open the valve and meter in SeaFoam, being careful not to insert the SeaFoam so fast that it stalls the engine. The engine vacuum will suck up the SeaFoam in a hurry so pay attention to the can. Or, better yet, use a can that is only half full to start with.
