    WOW! I havn't seen valves look that ugly in a while. Looks like you are running RICH as shit. I would be more worried about a valve sticking with that amount of corrosion and build up. Maybe a fuel additive could help you. I am at a loss.... How did you get that picture?

    You could try an upper engine cleaner (subaru one is common)

    Spray it in the throttle body with engine running.

    Na, 07 valves........your good to go. Clean them up to check for any major pitting just incase but my guess is they will be fine.

    USE a better fuel and get some top of the line injection cleaner,...the one on the left has salt moisture on it!
