CRC Industries’ GDI IVD Intake Valve & Turbo Cleaner to Debut at 2016 AAPEX and SEMA Shows

Testing on turbocharged engines yields excellent results

WARMINSTER, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CRCauto–CRC Industries, Inc. announced it will launch its CRC GDI IVD® Intake
Valve & Turbo Cleaner at the upcoming 2016 AAPEX and SEMA trade shows
during Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week in Las Vegas, NV. The launch
follows extremely successful test results on turbocharged engines.

Originally introduced as CRC GDI IVD® Intake Valve Cleaner, “Turbo” was
added to the name after testing confirmed its impressive turbocharger
cleaning abilities. The product was designed to dissolve damaging carbon
deposits from intake valves of all gasoline-powered vehicles,
particularly gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines where carbon
buildup on intake valves is a significant issue. “Excess carbon deposits
on intake valves causes power loss, poor fuel economy and a host of
other performance problems in GDI vehicles,” said Julie Williams,
product manager, CRC Automotive Division. “CRC GDI IVD® Intake Valve &
Turbo Cleaner is proven to remove up to 46 percent of these
power-robbing deposits after the first hour of use. “Our testing has
also proven the product is equally effective for vehicles equipped with
turbocharged engines,” she said.

“Soot and carbon buildup on turbocharging systems can cause surging
boost, sticky vanes and unnecessary power loss,” explained Williams.
“Packed with the maximum available PEA (polyether amine) detergency on
the market, CRC GDI IVD® Intake Valve & Turbo Cleaner removes hard
carbon, soot, gum and varnish from turbos without the need for
disassembling the engine.”

According to Williams, this is the perfect time for CRC to expand its
target market to include turbocharged vehicles. Most GDI engines are
equipped with turbos to get more power from a smaller engine. Targeting
vehicles with turbocharged engines allows the company to reach more
users today while the number of vehicles with GDI engines continues to

Recent research shows that in a little more than three years 71 percent
of new car production in North America will feature GDI engines.

CRC has conducted extensive product testing on a wide range of GDI and
turbo equipped vehicles and results confirm that CRC GDI IVD® Intake
Valve & Turbo Cleaner:


  Removes 46 percent of hard-carbon deposits from intake valves after
the first hour of use


Continues to clean even one week after application


Regains 13.5 horsepower after application


Increases up to 4.9 ft.-lbs. of torque

“CRC makes the only product in the market with proven results like
these,” Williams said.
