How to get into turbo for Mr Muscle fix?

I'm looking to put mr muscle in my turbo as a carbon cleaner as I'm using Wynne diesel turbo cleaner in the tank and thought this would be a better option but I can't get in!!! Assuming once the bolts are off I can then clean without removing? I've lifted the car and can't find the other side of the pipe or find a guide on this which is surprising. Also to confirm, is where I have circled black where the Mr muscle goes in?

Cheers!

That's the EGR valve. If you want to clean that just take it off and do it off the car.

The turbo is on the back of the engine.

The turbo''s on the other eise of the engine. ;)

Undo the downpipe and spray the muscle in there. Enjoy the smoke on the first start up after. :D

Gunna give it a go tomorrow, my turbo has loss of power at high rpm, would this help fix this issue do you guys think? Im going to take a few hours to make sure I dont rush anything as im not the best at mechanical work haha but with time and patience Im confidant I can do it. I've put some of Wynns diesel turbo cleaner and redex in my fuel tank hoping thatll help but going to use this method too before bringing it anywhere.

Is there a recommended place or type of garage to go to for this as dont want to be ripped off, just furnished my a house I mortgaged and the mrs has expensive taste unfortunately for my pocket haha. One place offered a free check for fault codes but feel hesitant haha.


Any and all help is appreatiate.

Telling us where in the country are you based would help with recommendations?

After some redex and a small bottle of wynnes diesel cleaner there's certainly a difference. When I get paid I'm going to add a 500ml bottle to a full tank before adding mr muscle. Still though if that fails, any garage recommendations in my area would be fantastic!

If it seems to be improving give it a good hammer down the motorway, an hour or so to see if the heat from the drive can free up the VNT
