It appears our TDIs are a bit easier to perform this task on than a MB. When I last cleaned one of our intake manifolds my first thought was to soak it in B100 but I didn`t have any real handy at the time (tank was full of it though) so I used Simple Green instead. Good to confirm that B100 does the trick better than anything else, thanks Lightman.

I`ve always admired 300TDs and have one coming up from Florida this month, guess I`ll be spending quite a bit more time here soon. Anxious to join the MB club any time now.
