Just wondering, when going through all the carbon buildup posts through various forums I have not seen complaints of carbon buildup in 2011+ Audi S5 V8 models.

I am thinking to do a carbon clean for my car, I do not have any carbon buildup symptoms more looking to restore engine efficiency, preventive maintenance and knowing that my engine is clean again [:D]

I would say it all depends on how you've been driving the car.

If you're driving style is very "spirited", then I would say maybe not, but if you've been driving normally, then I would say yes.

So I have decided to get a Carbon clean done!

It looked really ugly in there! Definitely, better throttle response and pull throughout all rpms and less jerkiness that I had before. When doing the clean they found my intake runner to be cracked and I switched it out for a used one to prevent any long term issues.

Here are some pics.

How many miles were on your car? I have a 2011 with an APR supercharger, could be my imagination but does not seem as quck on the throttle as when I bought it (currently 34K mi)...

Mileage is stated in a post above, I believe since you have a supercharger you do not have to worry about carbon buildup as much, since air is forces through the intake meaning it is less prone to have buildup.

Interesting... Do you have any "After" pictures?
