    i just port and polished my intake manifold and i was wondering what is the best way to clean out all the dust inside. Ive been hosing it down forever and when i run my finger inside my finger comes out grey still.

    I am assuming you pulled the valves out?
    Then use some heavy duty foaming engine cleaner and fill it up good. Then let it sit, and hose it out good. Last but not least use some solvent or hot tank it

    Are you just using water or are you using anything to scrub it? Well you can use WD40 and a rag and that will work. Also you can use any carb cleaner that will work fine as well.








    What? :blink:

    Use an air tool, and spray all the crap out with air, then wash with carb cleaner, then spray with air again. Personally I would take it to a machine shop and have them hot tank it, and then I would use an air tool after that.
