Anyone wanna back me up on this one!?
Yes, removing the TB & scrubbing the inside of the Intake with an old toothbrush works wonders!
Just make sure the Intake Cleaner used is FI SAFE though!
otherwise the other Carb Cleaner stuff will deteriorate your FI seals prematurely.
*NOTE: That'* a bad thing!*
As to the frequency of cleaning....I did mine EVERY spring! That way all summer long I had good horsepower.
