Do you have larger pics? They are hard to see.

Do you know any product that will help with this problem?

I was thinking about buying the redline complete fuel system cleaner, any suggestions?

I always thought carbon was the result of the combustion process, a mixture of burned and unburned fuel, that deposited out on the combustion chambers and the piston crowns.

I can definitely see that there is a lot of deposits in your manifold, and I'm wondering how those deposits end up in the intake, where I think there's mostly just filtered air flowing through. Does it come from the EGR? or what??

it comes from the egr. heres the web site sorry the pics arent that great. but u get the idea wut has black stuff on it is most likly caked about 1/4 of an inch or more. the fuel system cleaner will do nothing, i looked at my injectors that all have 167k on them and they looked brand new! iv maybe used fuel cleaner once! just make sure u fil up at a good gasoline station. heres more pics

Goddamn emission laws. That carbon build up is not gonna do much for performance. Good thing it doesn't clog up the injectors.

Does this crap have to be removed by scraping, brushing, or whatever, or is there something you can spray in the intake that will get rid of it?

the only real way to remove it all is good ol fashion carb cleaner and elbo grease. simply spraying something in ur intake wont do much, even if it did all that carbon would go into the combustion chamber and either end back where it came from or get stuck down the exaust pipe, so it causes build up in one area or another, unless u take it all apart and clean it!
thanks volk for fixin the pics. all that weird white stuff is soap bubbles from dawn. thats also wuts all over my drive way
