TB all clogged up *images*

hey guys and gals

just thought id clean up my throttle body today, having done it on my alfa before i thought id get it done again, its amazing how dirty they get and i have a feeling its down to the egr valve, which was blocked off on my older alfa...no more horrible soot

well heres some photos of the mucked up parts;






sprayed on some wd40 got some rags and wiped off what i could, then got some sand paper(you might be thinking whhhy?!?!) but believe me it shifts all the soot, and makes it very smooth too, meaning better flow

well heres the clean pictures;







its always good to clean out this specially on a turbo car, thinking if any soot came through the intercooler pipe and into the turbo, it wouldnt be good.
