    Terraclean system as seen Wheeler Dealers

    In the interest of getting the best from our performance engines, I would like to share the excerpt I recorded from the programme last week, quality may not be to great as I recorded it direct with my video camera.
    However, when I saw this I was very impressed with the results shown, so much so, I found a reasonably local company who had invested in this technology and went there last Saturday and had the treatment, I can fully endorse the claims made on the programme, and am highly delighted with the result. For those of you who know the performance of my Volvo in the past will agree it is pretty rapid, this Terraclean treatment has made a tremendous improvement in performance throughout the range and I would claim an increase in economy by 2-3 mpg.
    As these machines are rolled out (there are only 5 in the country so far) it is expected to be a yearly thing to consider when having your car serviced. There is also a system designed for diesel engines.
    I do have a contact email of the importers who can supply a list of regional operators if any one needs it.

    That looks incredible BUT does it seem too good to be true.....?

    Could be Edd China's version of the George Foreman grill - "Pay me enough & I'll endorse it until I'm dead". James May must've turned them down.

    Could be worse, they could have Bernie & Leepu endorsing it on Chop Shop.

    Interesting. How much does a clean cost? Do they suggest after what mileage/kind of driving an engine would benefit most?

    Right, I'm all booked in for next Wednesday at 1200 :

    http://www.performancetuninguk.co.uk...rbonising.html

    Quoted 95.00 plus vat for my 2.3 T5 (I think it goes on engine size) will get as much info as possible on the day but if anyone has any questions they would like me to ask let me know.
    Will be interesting to see if there is any improvement on my car 1998 T5 58,000 miles, was going to have the injectors cleaned but thought I'd give this a try.

    Give my regards to Jags, he's the owner and a real nice guy, tell him I'm well pleased with the result. (Silver V70 R AWD)

    This treatment is really exciting stuff and will be well worth doing for the results, but I wonder if Edd's video on the Jag is a bit misleading.

    When he starts the Jag, is the engine cold when he sticks it on the EGA that then shows poor emissions? After one hour of running on an increased tickover whilst having the treatment, the CATs on that Jag will be nice and hot and performing properly - I wonder if the amazing results weren't ALL down to the treatment, but the fact that the CAT's were hot and doing their job as opposed to cold and not.

    Am I talking out of my pessimistic ar$se ??!!??
