    Only use the MAF cleaner on the MAF. For the other items you can use carb cleaner. If you're trying to clean the inside of the intake you can use seafoam in your fuel and vacuum lines. For the vacuum line use in small doses so you don't flood the motor. You'll have a fog for a short time 30-60 mins of driving. But it will clean the intake and tops of the pistons

    I purchased the CRC spray Maf sensor cleaner, so now I'll probably purchase the CRC intake/throttle body cleaner...

    Amsoil Ea air filter is a good choice.

    Use simple green and a brush to clean your intake. It will look like new. Rinse thoroughly with water when you're done and let it dry completely before re-installing. If you have a bucket, let the intake soak in the simple green over night before scrubbing it.

    A fellow member on here just took my advice on this a few weeks and posted pics of it after. Looked brand new.

    Good luck!

    ^^ Adding to the above -- after you have washed things down and dried everything as best you can, start the engine and allow its heat to finish the drying process. There are knock sensors installed in the valley pan that can be adversely affected by water.
