Exclamation E36 M3 Engine Decarbonize

Has anyone decarbonized their engine? if YES how did you do it, are there places out there which perform this job?

i just got my first e36 m3(pics posted on this Forum) even though the car is pristine nothing wrong, i was thinking about decarbonzing it...any insight would be helpful

Thanks

I decarbonize mine every once in a while. Drive her around for about 20 minutes and get her nice and warm...then give her a few 20-100 pulls on the open mexican highway shifting at redline.

A little sarcasm for coming off an exit ramp around 25mph and going up to 100mph on a wide open highway with no traffic or pedestrians in sight. Shifting at redline through 2nd and 3rd gears will get ride of alot of carbon build up.

I've also used seafoam via the brake booster line. I would not want that sitting in my crankcase though. You can also run it through your gas tank.
