1. Remove the MAF sensor
9. Spray the living snot out of the TB with carb cleaner, intake cleaner, or soak in castrol super clean.
10. Whatever solvent/cleaner you used should be THOROUGHLY evaporated or dried before reassembly, particularly anything in the small hole where the MAF sensor sits. Some solvents can damage the sensor.
When done per Techinfo instructions, no problem. Read step 10 carefully.
