Demon SRT (SRT-4) upgrades
Just a short overview of upgrades I've done so far. More upgrades coming
soon after the new transmission and clutch break in. FYI - These are
upgrades as of JULY, not June as it says in the video :P

Ⅱ clean combustion chambers
Ⅱ.Operational procedures for using the SM727 carbon cleaner machine
to clean combustion chambers.
[Caution] A professional automotive maintainer is necessary to operate this
Step 1: Start the engine to reach operating temperature.
[Caution ] After reaching the operating temperature the efficiency of the
will dissolve the carbon deposits better.
Step 2: Remove high-tension cable and spark plugs.
Step 3: Load the carbon cleaner into the SM727 machine, and close the
valve. Install the
high-pressure tube, and then open the valve.
[Caution] The spray control handle must be in close position, otherwise,
will spray out!
Step 4: Adjust the pressure of high-pressure air to 2kg/cm2.
[Caution] Too high or too low pressure will cause the form of the bubble to
Step 5: Inject the bubble into a plastic cup to check the integrity of the
[Caution] The integrity of the formed bubble is when after invert in the
the bubble will not fall out.
[Caution] The room temperature should be controlled above 20 degrees.
During the cold weather, keep the SM727 machine indoor.
Step 6: Fill the bubble into each cylinder.
[Caution] The spray control handle must in full open position to avoid
incomplete bubble formation!
Step 7: Wait for one minute, then repeat step 6 one more time.
Step 8: Wait for five minutes, remove the high-pressure tube to the SM949
to suck the carbon deposits from combustion chamber.
Step 9: Suck the bubble and dissolved carbon deposits from combustion
Step 10 Connect the high-pressure air with air gun, using the high-pressure
air to purge the residual bubble and carbon deposits from combustion
[Caution] Use cloth or paper to cover the spark plug cover mouth to avoid
pollution spilling out onto the staff.
Step 11: Use a bendable work-lamp to inspect the combustion chamber to see
is there any carbon
deposits left on the pistons. If there is carbon deposits found then repeat
steps 3 to 10.
Step 12: Install the qualified spark plugs.
[Caution] If the surface of the engine has dirt from the carbon agent,
the dirt can be removed by using a wet cloth!
Step 13: To install the high-tension cable and the surrounding parts.
Step 14: Start the engine, push the throttle until the engine runs
[Caution] Do not push the throttle too hard when starting the engine. That
is because during the cleaning process the bubbles may jet into the intake
manifold due to the intake valve in open condition. Therefore, when
starting the engine the throttle needs to be pushed and released quickly to
avoid hydraulic lock.
Combustion Chamber Cleaning—Berryman Your Car; Don't Seafoam It!
In this video, I use the Berryman Products "Combustion Chamber Cleaner" via
vacuum induction. The product utilizes aggressive solvents and detergents
to clean the entire combustion chamber, including the heads, piston crowns,
and intake valves, rather than using a petroleum oil, an aliphatic
distillate (paint thinner), and isopropyl alcohol (not a very good
Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts
One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle
(DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this
procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in
order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this
procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle.
If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my

Combustion Chamber Cleaners—Berryman Products vs. Seafoam
Definitive comparison of combustion chamber cleaning effectiveness of two
cleaners from Berryman Products and one product from Seafoam. The Berryman
Products cleaners are "B-12 Chemtool Fuel Treatment" (part #0116) and "Step
2" of their "Professional 3-Step Fuel System Maintenance Kit) (part #2630).
The Seafoam product is their ubiquitous "Motor Treatment" (part #SF-16).
