Interesting event

I was driving and when I wanted to get in a heavy traveled road I had to goose my car and get in between cars. I hit over 5000 rpms in doing so. It's very seldom I do that.

What I found interesting was that my engine had a growl to it and was real responsive with power behind it. It ran better than before. My guess is that I blew the carbon off the valves or cleared the injectors. I did something to it.

Plausible?

I mean, plausible sure. Winding out your engine occasionally is good for it.
