Not particularly having a horse in the blank vs clean debate here, but....
I don't quite understand how it's hard to see that getting a remap and blanking the ERG is mentally a bigger hurdle than cleaning the ERG valve.
It's modifying your car vs an additional maintenance task, or is my brain just weirdly wired? (On second thought, scrap that final question ;-)
Edit: On the 'cost' of your own work hours thing: you wouldn't count that unless you'd give up paid work to make time to undertake your maintenance/repairs. If a job takes me 2.5 times as long as the fiat garage, but they charge me €50/hour and charge me 10-20% more on the parts, than I'm saving €20/hour worked + parts difference . There is no theoretical 'cost' as I wouldn't be doing anything else that was making me money during that time, others' situation may differ.
