    The only drawback I can see is if a chunk of carbon went into the cylinder and messed with your rings or cylinder wall. Mechanical cleaning would probably be better.

    Correct. We see scouring from any solvent based upper induction cleaning. It is impossible for particles to not be forced between the cylinder wall and piston while performing one.

    Manual cleaning is only 3-5 hours and then the valves are actually cleaned as new. Huge difference if you have over 20k miles on your DI engine.
