cleaning the intake...?

I am removing the intake manifold to do the EGR delete and oil cooler. From looking in the EGR valve there is a lot of black wet soot in the intake. I have looked on here and some people say to clean it, some say dont worry about it. Should I take it in somewhere and have it cleaned, I live in a small town and dont know if there is somewhere in town that will clean it? Do I soak it in degreaser and pressure wash it and get it as clean as possilbe? or just leave it alone and reinstall?

Thanks,

Will

Clean it.
I used a parts cleaner and just let it run into each runner for about 10-15 minutes and into where the elbow attaches over night. Then it went to the self-serve car wash for a pressure wash. The cleaner the better.
Now a question for you.
What is your opinion of the PHP ECM/FICM rollback? Worth it? Did you opt for the "tuned" version or just left it stock?

i had mine off and decided to clean it used some degreaser and cleaned it up the best i could which wasn't as good as i would have liked it to be. if you can first choice would be take it to a machine shop and have them dip it over night and clean it. but if you decide to clean it yourself make sure you have a good pair of gloves that go atleast half way up your arm casue the soot will stain anything and everything including your skin for about a week if you get enough on you.

o and wether you do it or you find a shop to do it make sure you blow out the fiiting that the hose for your map sensor to make sure its not clogged and mess up your readings and in turn give you some driveabilty issues.

You definately want to get it clean! IMO that is one of the most important parts of the job.
