i wanna know if i can still use that ekotek power boost stuff
u know wat u spray in through the air filter hose?

also i know that the engine gets varnish on it which slows performance
but would i have more varnish and stuff on engine through the inlet manifold making it shift quicker?

Yes you can still you 10Kboost or whatever it is (carb cleaner@10)

In theory if you are running more power and hence burning more petrol then varnish depsoits will in theory build up faster. A tank of optimax is probabaly better than anthing you spray in to the TB.
Although a strip and rebuild would be the ebst thing

Dont' think you need to worry about the engine suddenly loosing power from this effects takes ages to happen and even then hardly noticable.
It's more pyscosymatic.

Flat spots when it's cold the engine, or the air temp?
could try resetting the ecu, see if that helps reduce flat spots. Or swap over coolant temp sensor.
Varnish wouldn't cause peoblems only in the mornings, they take '000 miles to build up.

hi pav, not heared from u in a while.

don bother getting any of that 10k boost crap. its just carb cleaner with a fancy name. carb cleaner only costs about 4 a tin, i used it on your car when i did the inlet for ya.

just run some optimax and redex through it, doubt ittl change the flatspot problem. where in the rev range are these flatspots?

4 a tin of carb cleaner, wow that's costly, 2 is the target price to go for, or if you go through loads, buy "brake and clutch cleaner" in a gallon drum and get a plants spray with th eplunger in it, mucho cost effective, about 5 for a gallon of it.
