    How to clean inside intake manifold?

    If you had super fine grey dust in your manifold from a sc touchdown, how might you clean it? Take off the manifold block off and shove a duster in it? Does the dust just go in the oil?

    When I removed the flame arrestor, I blew it out with an air compressor, then washed it in hot water with Dawn, then blew it out again with air and let completely dry out. Perfectly clean afterwards.

    CRC red can brake clean works well too-- followed by compressed air.

    Sounds like the flame arrestor isn't hard to take off I'll give it a go. Is it just finding the bolts to the bubbly looking thing where the air goes in ?

    I'm good with bolting/unbolting just not familiar with the engine area.

    Hey Snoman ya alive and well. Had a couple kids now they are grown up enough to start pulling on my leg to go riding on the water....

    Wow that brings back memories Good to see it's gone viral

    It's relaxing riding down the river in the ski but it's always a weird feeling when I drive past his house and remember the nice stranger that had a good time playing with my ski
    It was a little interesting walking through his animal zoo hunting head warehouse as a first impression/introduction
    Didn't hear any banjos.
    Good to see the forum alive and thriving. Long live greenhulk..

    Not sure where else I'd take my issues

    Just want to make sure. I have an rxt. So I take of my ic block off to get access in the manifold and use pressure washer inside the manifold...?? I have grey dust inside the throttle body so I know there has to be something in there. I just don't want to remove engine

    Need to soak it pretty good with a degreaser like purple stuff etc., and water followed by compressed air. Pressure washer is a joke. Make sure you remove throttle body, MAP sensor and AIT sensor first.

    Remove intake from ski, remove all sensors from it. Throw it in the dishmachine. When finished, blow it out with compressed air until bone dry.

    Sorted!
