Final and testing stage is to blow it with compressed air, just any rubber hose will work as adapter.
Tada and I got air from muffler.
No errors all checks out
How much they won't for such a "high tec" equipment???
Don't believe in their "high tec" dissolvers etc this how they make money.
did you get to this without removing intake manifold? if i can get to those valves without doing that and can still remove those valves with removing the bulk head and using chemicals and some kind of long wire tool i would do it. without the dme flash i have done both my sides are clogged (idk how badly, cant be too bad last time i knew the code would shut off and on, on its own) they want around 250ish iirc for that kit with the wire brushes and etc to put into that and they recommend using chemtool or some such liquid. if i can ill go buy the carb cleaner and try a wire of some sorts but the question is length, how strong is it etc. look at the thread about it to see pics of the kit itself.
