I like to expand on my statement --- that I run Bunny Bondo  " Super Lean " .

In turn that cleaned out the Turbo to the point where I do no longer need to
clean it.    Those turbos if run too cold and RICH   wind up with a lot of 
soot buildup.

  Gooey soot would be from oil getting into the combustion chamber 
though.  Unless you're constantly blowing a black cloud (fuel set too 
high and your foot constantly to the floor) you shouldn't be able to 
soot up the engine enough to clog things other than the oil.  Most 
likley it was a combination of all the maintenance you did that 
cleaned it up.  Sounds like it'd been pretty neglected before you 
bought it, which usually means infrequent oil changes of "S" only 
rated oil.  That'll plug up rings, breather screen, valves, etc.
