I am waiting for any pictures, I am very curious myself.

Can someone explain this thread in plain english (noob) terms? Not understanding what this is about.

Sounds like it has to do with something about keeping oil off the valves but that's about all I understand.

Given all the other issues with the car, I doubt I will have mine long enough to worry about carbon build up.

I would like to see some bore scope images, preferably on some cars with higher mileage.

Maybe bring the borescope to FF? If you had that and some of the cleaner, you could definitely prove/disprove the need in person. Surely there will be at least some Mk3's with relatively high mileage

That's a great idea and also a good sales tactic for Aron to take into consideration. Then you will have images to add to the website as well.
