Cleaning intake manifold without removing from engine.

I removed my EGR after about 20k miles and there's really not much soot in the intake but I want it as clean as possible but without having to take her off the engine.

Also have the Sinister EGR delete kit so it's fairly easy to gain access to it through open port.

I have Snow Performance 625ml nozzle blasting water/meth starting at 16psi and 100% at 33 psi and I think it has help some.

But there's about 3mm of soot left in the intake manifold and it just bugs me.

Any thoughts into maybe cleaning without removing her?

Also do I have to remove the turbos to remove the intake manifold?

Thanks

It would be very hard to get that manifold clean inside with it in place, not to mention how much crap would end up down the intake ports. Unfortunately, yes the turbos need to come off to get the manifold out.

At that point you might as well just take it off and install a ported intake manifold.....and some other goodies
