I see in another post we are telling Nate that the cooling jackets don't line up.

Am I draining a little coolant off to take off the TB? Or is it merely a nice easy unhook, unbolt, clean 'er up and slap on w/fresh gasket?

I cleaned out my MAF a couple of months back. The filaments were BLACK. I mean coated in that stuff. I have yet to clean out the TB though, I havent had the time set aside to take it apart to clean it, and ive never done it before.
