How many miles were on that car? What type of engine was it? Did the carbon build-up make it "unreliable"?

Notice the tops of the valve heads themselves are actually pretty clean. Here are some examples of severe carbon build-up that will impact idle, fuel economy, etc.





So yeah.. the valves that "TheShopCT" posted actually aren't that bad.
If the new STI will be susceptible to gunk like this on the valves at any point in itís life....Subaru can keep it.
