    Valvoline Carb & Throttle Body cleaner. You can buy it at our local auto parts store. It works very well and dissolves carbon like nothing, if the TB is dirty you will definitely notice a difference.

    You may also want to consider cleaning your MAF while you're in there, especially if you run a cotton-gauze (K&N oil type) air filter. They tend to foul out MAF sensors when the excess oil gets pulled into the intake. CRC makes a product called Mass Air Flow Cleaner, which is specifically designed for that purpose, and won't damage the sensitive hot wire in the MAF.

    I use CRC throttle body cleaner. I also use CRC MAF cleaner for the MAF. Both work great and you will notice a difference if its really dirty. Its worth doing.

    I get both of them from OReilleys.

    Yes it is worth doing if they are dirty enough. I also use the CRC stuff.
