SP Diagnostics, Revive – Stand Number D19

Revive will be showcasing its Engine Cleaner & Power Restorer (or more commonly known, Revive Turbo Cleaner)  which is a safe water based, non toxic and non flammable fluid, using technology developed and used for the cleaning and maintenance of aviation jet engines, power station turbines, large marine diesel engines and now automotive engines.revive-starter-kit

The fluid is sprayed into the vehicle’s intake system before the turbo inlet whilst the engine is running. As the Revive fluid passes through the engine system it locks on to built up oily/carbon deposits and strips away a surface layer. These tiny carbonised particles are no larger than the soot particles the engine naturally generates, making it a perfectly safe process for vehicles fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).
