so my truck has 165260 miles on it. finally took the tb off and holy crap. there was so much gunk built up it was ridiculous. cleaned it all with a toothbrush and brake cleaner put it back on. changed oil (RP 5w-20) and started it and BOOM started up fast like i just changed the plugs or something. went for a drive and the throttle response was amazing!

lesson here, CLEAN YOUR THROTTLE BODY!

True Dat, I clean mine every so often, it makes a great difference in throttle response every time I clean it

I pulled mine off when I did my last oil change and couldn't believe how dirty it was at 35,000 miles. I cleaned it and it made big difference in throttle response.

I cleaned mine at 30,000 and I could tell a difference in the way it performed.

anyone have a good write up on cleaning this? I've been wanting to do it for awhile and everytime i start looking for info i get so many mixed instructions. I've even read to not use brake cleaner before.
