Cleaned my CAC

I did the CCV reroute about a two weeks ago and have been meaning to clean out the CAC. I was worried it was going to be a beast to get out but I did a little research and it is SUPER easy. After 166k miles (only 3k known deleted) it was pretty nasty, but not nearly as bad as I expected.

What did you end up using to clean it? Starting fluid and just spraying the piss out of it into one side? If it wasnt for those damn plastic end tanks we could take these off and go to a radiator shop to have it hot tanked. Oh well

I am also curious what you cleaned it out with? Simple green? Did a lot of oil come out?
