I use Oven cleaner.

If it can clean the oven, it sure can clean an intake manifold .... :yes:

You can also boil it in anti-freeze. About 25 minutes at 190 deg. take it out, hose it off, done.

X's whatever on glass beading it. Rotojet first to get the oil off of it, let it dry and glass bead it. Clearcoating is a great idea for long term appearance.

Carb cleaner first if you want then some Ospho acid and a toothbrush. Clean and neutralize with some baking soda.:yes:

If you were to sandblast it you don't want sand all inside or you will have a hard time getting it all out of there.
