How much approximately are people paying to get a carbon clean carried out and did it make a noticeable difference?

I think Ricky charges £300-400 ballpark for this. The difference will depend on how much gunk is built up and removed.

There will usually be new head gaskets to pay for as well, in my experience, so £500-550 is more likely.
MRC will probably quote you.
