know a lot of direct injection turbos have this problem, I should say all actually. Anyone with a highish mileage turbo or abarth see their intake valve? I maybe recon there isn't maybe 90k mileage cars out there..

Nope. No DI. Just use quality gas to keep those valves clean.

Fuel Injection: Sequential multi-port.

Glad we don't use DI like the competition, Fiesta ST. Ford has been plagued with problems because they can't seem to stop carbon buildup from occurring in their DI-Ecoboost engines. We'll see who's engine runs smoother a few years from now.

Yep, a few of my friends with BMW have been having issues, kinda common I guess to have everything cleaned out.
