Welllll? How'd it go?

Mine took 1 1/2 cans of intake cleaner and 2 broken IAC screws :(

Check out this thread to see pics of my intake before and after!

I just cleaned my TB today, sorry I keep forgetting to take pics. It wasn't as bad as it really could've been gunk-wise, but I did get it nice and shiny, and I decided to leave the MAF out, and while it'* hardly noticable, I do seem to be getting a bit better response and idle. Very worthwhile indeed!

Ohhh, I was under the impression that was important

I accidentally left mine off after reassembling, but it wasn't hard to pop my CAI back off and throw it on.

Can't wait to see some pics from jhill'* cleanout!

Guys, I've been up since early this morning. Yes, the screen...

lol, I would NOT recommend leaving your sensor out if you would like a car that runs
