It is also observed that there is a sudden increase in the pressure at the first just after IVO; this is because the pressure inside the cylinder is slightly higher than the intake pressure and also the intake valve opens before (TDC) causing a compression wave to propagate towards the valve and results in a pressure rise at that point.
Held in four Asian markets, Philippines, Hong Kong, Cambodia and Thailand, the test, conducted last October, inspected the intake valves of 94 cars using a Karl Storz Borescope to examine their engine's fuel delivery systems, then compared them against the industry standard Co-operative Research Council (CRC) Intake Valve Deposit (IVD) rating system, where 10 is perfectly clean.
