Default Stupid Purple Engine cleaner

I just bought this stuff from napa, and used it. It works pretty good on engines, getting away grime and stuff.I guess i missed something about polished surfaces. But it said it works on some, and not on some. So now my intake looks like a horny dog had a feild day with it. I tried to scrub it off, but it wont come off. Anyone know of a polish or something that will get it off? Thanks.

Yeah, I used Castrol's purple cleaner on another car, and it made a mess out of the engine compartment, especially the aluminum.

The intake is rough and kinda porous so it'd be hard to polish out. Maybe a stiff wire brush with metal polish, rubbing compound or something might get it out.

Gunk, Simple Green, or those citrus based cleaners would be better next time.
