finally got a chance to watch your video.
I agree that your steam clean method probably isn't accomplishing what you want. I can totally understand your logic...I mean, steam cleaning a car engine is great, right? I think for your Silvia, though, you're much better off backflushing with detergent (such as Cafitza), and periodically removing the screen for a detergent soak and scrub.
. Always remember the most important thing is what ends up in your cup!
