SSV Cleaning

The Secondary Shutter Valve opens at about ~5500 rpms (If I remember correctly) and when it gets gunked up with oil...it will rob you of power.

I followed the Technical Service Bulletin and I found something very very dirty...

I then proceeded to clean my SSV


After you clean your SSV (following the TSB of course),  you will notice that your car will be noticeably smoother as the SSV opens around ~5500 rpms. Might I also recommend an Oil Catch Can to prevent oil from traveling into your intake system...
