Cleaning turbo and intake procedure?

Going to be tackling the oil cooler, egr delete soon. While the intake and turbo are off, how/what do I clean them with? Can Brake parts cleaner be used?

There's a nice video on this link: 6.0l turbo cleaning

I know there was a nice write up a year or two ago, but I can't find it..

Hot pressurized water and some citrus degreaser works well on the intake manifold. Scrape as much loose carbon out as you can first.

Is there any cleaner that I should submerge the intake overnight in?

For the intake. Spray it down with brake clean and power wash it. Spray it with brake clean again and let it sit overnight in a sealed garbage bag to keep the brake clean from evaporating away. Then take a thin long brush fed it in the cylinder intake holes work it in and out scrubbing away (sounds kind of sexual ) until it's good and clean spraying more brake clean as required. Rinse it out then put simple green in a power washer hooked up to the hot water outlet and blast away It works great, nice and gets it clean The soot does stain the inside of the manifold due to the porosity of the metal but all the soot will be gone with a stained black look remaining. For the turbo see ERwin8R' post above.
