In theory, this would be awesome. However, I think this would be tough. Having access to the full port with nothing in the way, to me anyways, seems pretty important to do a good job. If you had to go through the TGV's and the plates, etc, it would be tough for the blasting to get all the way down to the valves and the stems. I know these blasters are pretty powerful but still not sure if this would work out. Also, I blasted the whole intake manifold as that was pretty dirty which you can see in the pictures I posted.
