2015 mustang eecoboost

Hello all

I just recently ordered myself a 2015 mustang ecoboost premium and couldn't be happier. I do have a question that's been bugging me for a while maybe someone can give an answer. I read on different forums the ecoboost will have a problem with carbon build up when you start building up the miles. Some said to clean the intake valve every 30k miles for $400-600 (I'm okay with that); others said that ford doesn't recommend cleaning the valve with chemicals that the only way to fix it is by changing the valve headers. (Which is gonna suck)

Can i clean the intake valve without changing the valve headers?

Thank you

The nature of Direct Injection, you can use seafoam to clean the deposits and if you were willing to run meth injection they would stay as clean as new.

Seafoam is AWESOME! Plus you get to smoke everyone out for a few minutes!

Ford has said to be wary of using various cleaners to clean off the intake valves as it can cause excessive heat in the turbo(s) on the ecoboost engines. They're currently developing a safer solvent to use...in the mean time get a catch can

I have a 2012 F-150 Ecoboost 3.5L, I think I'm going to add a catch can.

I replaced the spark plugs today so I could run a 93 Octane tune to add 90hp!! They looked pretty dirty. I'll report back when I fill up the tank with 93 & install the supertune.

I put the 87 octane tune on already & can feel the 50hp it added. Now don't get all excited this is on the larger V6 3.5L ecoboost, so the Pony car's ecoboost won't get that much with a tune only. :/

So I put the +90hp / 93 octane tune on my F-150 & I can feel the added power. Its actually a little too sensitive throttle wise.

My problem is though I thought I'd get better gas mileage with 93 octane to at least justify a little of the added price. But mileage is about the same as with the +50hp / 87 octane tune and both feel more responsive & pull harder than stock. So I think I'll be going back to the 87 octane tune.
