I believe that some don't like it because of the possibility of sending large carbon chunks through your turbo.
I saved an old O2 sensor and put it in before I ran a can of TEC through the car.....

Also, I read, probably in the archives on gnttype.org, NOT to follow the instructions on the can and let the cleaner sit and "soak". That course of action will be more likely to dislodge carbon "chunks". I ran the entire can through, pausing only when the car came *very* close to stalling.

I did find a nice leak on the downpipe/turbo connection but it was preferable to the one I thought I'd find...
