Default OWS Vs Mobil 1 + best engine decarb [ Bardahl's Powertune ?]

Mod Note : Please continue the discussion in our Engine Decarbonisation Article (Engine Decarbonising - Demystified). Thanks

hey people
i am running a swift petrol with Mobil 1 5w50 api sm
at 12000 now done 7000 odd on this oil

now i HAVE to decarb my car
an injector cleaning machine had a month back found and cleared 60 % blockages

my acceleration and finess had and still has dropped

so i am going to Decarb [dont know where or with what]

HOEC BARDAHL INDIA LTD.

decarb engine
flush and change oil + filter
change fuel filter
going to OWS sparking plugs
hehe
flush and change radiator coolant
change gear oil tooo [feels dirtier]

recheck spray and maybe reclean injectors

using the OWS flush s ordered from N1

anybody:-

knows of better plugs than the OWS ??

used OWS s oils anyone??[especially on a swift]
i like the " dyno proven for for torque and hp "
although my brain screams Mobil 1

anybody knows of Bardahls decarb answer??
anybody knows of a good engine decarb machine ?? in mumbai??

if i am not happy after this then i head to the nearest OBD 2 facility


also
i am a heavy user of sonax
octane boost is lOvEly to say the least
fuel system clean is lovely tooo

anyone tried their lead replacement cat-con friendly additive??

+ Pulse Plugs - 20,000X More Powerful Than Spark Plugs. Greater Horsepower, Fuel Efficiency, Torque.

+ NEXUS: Firestorm Sparkplug
even the OWS uses 'plasma' tech

thank you people
cheers

Hi Cyneverdie, I was a regular user of Mobil 1 (in my Alto Vxi) for the past 6 years. A few months ago, I upgraded to OWS plugs, & engine oil. I also used engine-flush from OWS before making the switch. My engine did appear to run smoother, although how much of it is in my head, I'm not sure I was a firm believer in MotorUp too, & look what happened to them !

Does anyone knows of a place in Mumbai from where I can get Bardhal's powertuneup done?

What I am a little surprised to read is that your car needs a decarb at just 12K & you have also already had your car's injectors cleaned.

Is Mobil 1 such a bad oil or is there a problem with your car or quite simply, you are being over-protective?
