Changed my oil and cleaned my throttle body. It wasn't too bad. I did it a while back too.

Cleaned mine about two weeks ago. It was pretty gummed up after 80k.

To get in those hard to reach spots, heres a tip we use on M-16's. Take a wood handled cotton tuipped applicator (military term for a q-tip) break the handle and use the sharp splintery part to dig out the carbon from those tough to reach spots.

Looks good. Did you have to use a new gasket or reused the old one??
