    Cleaning the Air Intake? What does everyone use.

    I was wondering what everyone uses to clean their Air Intake? I don't want to damage it but wouldn't mind it being cleaner.

    My VIN:    A bunch of numbers and letters that should not interest you.

    As if I ever took mine off like that, I would just refinish it.

    Maybe you could have a local machine shop bead blast that for you.

    You could also clean it up with engine degreaser and paint with engine enamel.

    Vapor/water blasting is where it's at if you want a clean/perfect factory look.

    Agree with the comments - get that thing blasted/coated.

    intake manifold

    I spent many days grinding, sanding and
    buffing it until it gleamed like chrome. knocking
    off the rough casting edges really dresses it up.
    No I don't know how to upload photos from
    my flip phone. I'm sure someone has taken a
    shot of it. [The car with the SS Spoiler and
    ground "defects"]
