Angry 75 diesel inlet manifold

Has anyone got any idea how to remove the clag in the inlet manifold that it reducing the size of the manifold tubes by about 25%. I have tried soaking in warm, soapy water overnight but with little or no success.

Chuck it on a bonfire and leave it there for several hours?

Hydrochloric acid drain cleaner maybe?

What he said ^ but have plenty of rags and hand cleaner to hand 'cause it's a bit of a messy process.


Whilst you're at it give the EGR valve the same treatment, or blank it, Arctic has a good ' How to '.


Neither will turn it into a racehorse, but the improved smoothness and pickup qualities are quite noticeable.

It is a nice drive from Flint to our next meet on October 3rd at Wolverhampton. Why not drop Artic (Steve) a message and ask if he will exchange the manifold and egr for you at the meet. Does not take long , and much cleaner and easier than attempting to do it yourself. It’s a filthy job.

Failing that I have a spare so that you can use your car while cleaning yours? (Or vice versa)
