    I just removed my intake so I can install a new carb/intake and about had a heart attack!!! The engine is only 2 years old and appears to be in GREAT shape with the exception that some FOOL obviously used the old intake and did not bother to remove the old solidified oil that was burnt under the intake baffle(appearantly they NEVER changed the oil).When I removed the intake large chunks of this dropped into the intake valley and below . I was wondering if there is something that I can use to "flush" this out of the engine without doing any harm to anything else. Thanks for the advice!!!

    Yes, call Mag-Hytec and get two quarts of the LE-2300-LX. About $5.00 per quart. It breaks up carbon deposits and will disolve them and let your engine oil take them to the filter. Put 1 quart in your engine with a fresh oil change. Do this for the next two oil changes and you will have a clean sludge clump free engine. Mag-Hytec's number is 1-818-786-8325 or www.mag-hytec.com

    You can use ATF to do it. Jut put about 4 oz. in a shallow dish like a lid and suck it in thru the PVC valve. The chemicals in it shatter the carbon and dissolve it in the oil. You should probably do this before right before an oil change just to be safe in case I'm wrong.
