Cleaning inside of intake....

I'm doing an oil/egr cooler after finding moisture inside the intake. I've got everything apart and cleaned up except for the inside of the intake. My question is this; what is the best way to clean the inside of the intake and get rid of all the wet carbon? I was lucky, I caught the problem early, and the intake is not filthy but it needs cleaning. Thanks for any help!

If you have any sort of machine shop nearby, they should be able to hot tank the intake manifold to remove the carbon buildup.

You may want to delete the EGR Cooler since it may be leaking.

Went with BPD EGR cooler. Factory oil cooler. Since my original post, got the intake pressure washed and ready to bolt back in. This is my first 6.0 to get into. So far, it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be.
