I don't like the idea of softening a load of carbon and passing it through the engine with a load of chemicals and then dumping it into the catalytic converter. Must be the potential here to scratch the bore and damage the CAT.

Didnít Ford prohibit these treatments in its TGDI engines? Iirc, the concern was dislodged bits of carbon damaging the downstream turbocharger.

CRC has a this thing
but it just comes in a regular spray can. I am plan on implmenting this as regular maintenance, despite Ford's lack of approval.

Been using it on our non turbo GDI once a year for the past few years. Works really well, puts on a heck of a show out the exhaust for a few miles, lol
