5. Clean your intake manifold. You can use various acids, degreasers, brushes or carb cleaner. The black goop on there is thicker than it looks and hard to get out. I found that biodiesel dissolved the goo quite easily, 10 times easier than carb cleaner or grease lightning etc. If you have bio, or maybe even diesel fuel, set your intake on the grass, and fill it up to the brim and let it soak. It will look sparkly clean and silver after, like this...This will really restore lost performance and cut down on smoke due to more airflow.
