setup exhaust wise is all you need for a decent 202

As for chemical cleaning it involves a large bath of hydrochloric acid not something you can do yourself really :p

Hot acid bath, certainly worth doing and worth leaving to someone else ha ha

okay, so should i take the engine apart, like heads, pistons etc..

or just take it to them, and they'll do it all?
