Hi Scotty, I'm tempted to try using Seafoam to clean the possible carbon built up in my Audi 3.0 TFSI engine, but am a bit worry that it may damage the engine, as it has a supercharger between the throttle and the intake manifold. Will Seafoam damage the supercharger. My car has done about 55,000km, do I need to start worrying about carbon built up?

The closest thing I can find is the CRC Carbon Clean-Out. The seller said I can probably use the breather tube to suck the stuff into the engine so that it can bypass the supercharger if I have concerns with that. What do you think of this product instead of the specialized GDI stuff that you recommended?

Thanks Scotty for the prompt reply! However, I can't find the CRC GDI product in Hong, can only find the Seafoam can here. The seller said both have similar ingredients and they both give similar results. Any adverse effect using Seafoam?

do not use seafoam, use CRC intake valve GDI spray cleaner. Stuff works great, just fixed an Audi with one can.
