I wish I could find it for that price especially looking at the great job they did. I attempted DIY walnut shell blasting this past Sunday but the Harbor Freight gun just clogged the entire tire. I was fully pissed off for about 5 hours and accomplished basically nothing. Now I have to go back this Sunday with a gun cleaning kit. I have 36K miles and mine are as dirty as all of the others I have seen.

All the more reason to join the club (for advice on service & problems) or stick with a traditional natually aspirated engine.

I wonder if cutting 1/2 the oil change interval would reduce this, certainly could not hurt.

Can anyone chime in on having an OCC and if it will help with this, Also if they wouldn't mind explaining why or pointing me in the right direction that would be awesome!

^ theoretically a OCC will help because the carbon build up on the intake values is the oil fumes being vented by the PCV which an OCC is supposed to capture. However i think OCC helps but does not solve the problem. In the long run you will likely need your values blasted eventually no matter what. The problem simply is that in a direct injection engine, there is no fuel flowing over the values to "wash them" and so grime will build up over time.

I would assume running meth would also help since it would spray onto the valves.

Heard an oil catch can and running meth can't prevent the issue.
