The next task on the R-to-do list is to decoke the engine.
I finally found few specialists over here in ze Germany. Most of them are working on the Minis. But at the end the engine, at least the intake, should be almost the same with my RCZ. THP equals THP.

I'm really curious to see the level of residue in the intake ports. Over 100k miles of grime are sitting in there :(
And you can feel how much power the engine lost over time.


It would be good if they can show you the ports before and after, this will be very interesting RCZ-R and many will be awaiting your future posts - including me with my mere 12K miles !!
:lol: Laugh and the whole world laughs with you.... or is that at you? :eusa-think:

Yep. Pictures are a must.
I have an endoscope with a recording device so I could use it if they do not supply any devices. But from what they told me over the phone, they provide this kind of service for customers.

Meanwhile I also started to add injector cleaners to the fuel and it helped to improve engine's performance a bit. But we all know, the dirty devil sits in those intake ports.
RCZ R in red. driven daily. and driven hard.
