well, i decided to go the cheap route and buy some MAF cleaner aswell as some TB cleaner first. the intake and filter are fairly clean, only a little dusty, as i got to the giant ugly plenum lookin thing, it got a little more dirty, by the time the throttle body was off things looked pretty gross... heres what i found
intake side, fairly clean
engine side, not so much
inside the intake. i'm pretty sure the coolant came from me disconecting the hoses from the TB.
i'm wondering if thats even the right gasket for the TB, it probably is, but its kinda weird how that cut-out area on the top isn't routed for better air flow, also howcome there are water jackets around the TB??!?!? cars are weird compared to motorcycles
