The parts in that video certainly didn't have close to any serious amount of mileage on them, almost looks as if they were run in a car for a short period to get dirty and then just cleaned off really easy.

If it cleaned off thick baked on carbon as good as that, every garage on the planet would be using it.

Why not?

Seen plenty of success stories on Mr Muscle freeing up stuck vanes on Turbos by squirting it in the exhaust side of the turbo and letting it soak.

well the car is going into garage to have the EGR cool gasket done soon, so was thinking that while its off the car, may as well give it a good scrub or soak and clean

Coolant leaking

Thinking of getting the car decarbonised next week, least I'll see the results if it works or not
