First, why are you cleaning the valves on a 3 year old car? How many miles are on it? What symptoms make you believe you need to clean the valves?
You realize, a GDI engine sprays fuel AFTER the valves so it shouldn't need this. Only MPI engines that spray fuel in the intake runner BEFORE the valves get this problem.
