Revive discusses the effects of its turbo cleaner and power restoration treatment.
A spokesman for Revive commented: “We are often asked to supply ‘before and after’ images to show how effective Revive Turbo Cleaner is, but we have always been a bit reluctant to, because we would prefer our customers to do this on our behalf to give it undisputed credibility, but due to workshop time related pressures which we can appreciate, this doesn’t happen as often as we would like.
“Knowing the compressor housing seal was faulty on this vehicle, we took advantage of the opportunity of showing the effectiveness of Revive Turbo Cleaner.”
“We removed the turbo before the treatment to get an understanding of the condition of the turbo before we treated it and then reassembled and replaced back into position to run the engine.
“Once treated, we then removed the turbocharger and disassembled it again.”
Whilst the oil soaked intake impellor and housing shows a significant improvement, unfortunately the turbine side of the housing along with the variable geometry mechanism was surprisingly clean before the service began.
“Whilst physical differences were visible by eye in the exhaust side, it was difficult to present in the images,” added the spokesman.
Whilst Revive is primarily aimed at reducing problem-causing carbon deposits in the variable vane mechanism, this amply demonstrates the secondary benefits of cleaning action along the whole engine system gas path.
