Default How to clean throttle body

Just got a DOHC throttle body and I need to know the best way to clean it.

It looks something like this maybe a bit worse.

Just open the butterfly and spray some carb and choke in there get a metal/copper brush and scrub around it and wipe it off. The car will run a little poopy for a few seconds but it will clear up.

Would it be safe to drop the whole thing into a hot tank used for cleaning metal?

I wouldnt as you got some plastic kind of barrels under the throttle cable springs.

have the TB off the car first of all, Then as described above, empty a can of carb cleaner into it.

if you want to go the whole hog get the replacement gaskets from mitsu, take it apart and clean all the pieces individually..
