ESS TS2: What if I spray the Intake sys cleaner into PCV VALVE on the supercharger ?

Currently running ESS TS2 install on my M54 for close to 30K now.

Is it safe to spray Intake system cleaner into TS PCV Valve on top of the supercharger where the fat PCV hose is connected.... Will that sprayed intake cleaner effect/gets in contact with the internal supercharger oil on the way to the combustion chamber/valves???

I only recently started to run the oil catch can in my setup, so before that, the concentrated oil vapor did cause the inside of the engine look ... well.. Not "very appealing." I am doing the PEA fuel system cleaner route at the moment to clean most of that oily mess after the original PCV delete via the fuel tank. ( thankfully this engine is Not a Direct injection.)

But still want to know if the TS2 PCV Valve cleaner spray option will not mess up the internal supercharger lubrication, since those intake cleaners will dissolve most of the oil residue on contact....

Any knowledge on this subject is highly appreciated.....!!!!

It will not mess with the S/C oil at all. Do have in mind all that gunk will be sucked into the combustion chamber. Also the accumulation of oil will be at the bottom of the TS2 intake body (right below the pcv valve) as in a small pool. To get things really clean, you need to take apart the TS2, spray directly on the laminova fins and ts fins, let dry, reseal.
