Walnut Blasting

Walnut Blasting is the traditional method of Intake Cleaning. It is still necessary in some situations.

Walnut Blasting for Carbon Removal

  • Walnut Blasting requires removing the intake manifold and “blasting” walnut shells into the intake ports while simultaneously vacuuming out carbon deposits. 
  • Walnut Blasting is still necessary for severe carbon build-up, especially when it has already caused a running issue. 
  • Walnut Blasting is a lengthy process, and we generally ask that customers drop their vehicle off for this service. 
  • Prices are vehicle-specific. Please contact us for a quote on Walnut Blasting for your vehicle.
