2 Range Rover Evoques in for work. Diesel had a service and a tune while the Petrol had rear brakes replaced. Nice to start seeing a few of these coming through the shop.
We are calling this our Stage 3 clean. Stage 1 being Hydrogen Carbon clean machine. Stage 2, Hydrogen Carbon Clean machine and Liquimoly intake cleaner.
Stage 3 Walnut Blasting
Stage 4 = All of the above
What is it? quite literally its a machine that uses compressed air and fine crushed walnut shells to remove carbon build up. In our application, usually intake ports and the back sides of intake valves.
Why do it? Alot of modern engines by design are prone to carbon build up in the intake system, over time as the carbon build up increases the efficiency of the engine reduces, meaning less performance, fuel economy etc.
Why now for WEEU? We deal with a lot of cars that suffer from carbon build up, and a lot of our customers like to keep there cars no only going, but going like they should! We follow a lot of forums and in recent times have seen a lot of discussion on this topic. We also dont know of many local workshops that offer this service so decided now was the time. Its also a good fit with our other Detox Tools and Tuning service we now provide.
Whats involved? There is some time involved and the time taken varies from car to car. We do have to remove the intake manifold to gain access to the intake ports, this can mean on some cars, intake runner flaps also need removing. Each cylinder is done separately as the valves need to be in the closed position so as to not fill the cylinder with walnut shells, all other ports are masked off etc to avoid walnut shells going where they are not wanted.
We are excited to announce that we have teamed up with Diesel Tune NZ to be one of their official NZ dealers.
We have facilitated many tunes, however its been something we’ve outsourced, and struggled to answer questions quickly around, what are the gains? What price? and when can you do it?.
Now we will be able to provide this info on the spot. and time frames we can manage based around our own workshop loadings…. Wins all around.
We will look at combination deals also around engine detox (Carbon clean and walnut blasting) followed up with a performance tune.
Diesel Tune NZ, is a nationwide franchise giving us huge support, and although the name implies Diesel Tunes, we can do petrol’s as well, our first tune being a Mini Cooper S Turbo. See further down for pics and results, its now a little rocket!!! Customer feed back is “Im struggling to wipe the smile off my face”
Sample, We are tuning Our Diesel E-Class E220. Take a look at the what we can expect to see, hp, nm and economy gains… A massive 100Nm of added torque. Looking forward to this!!
