I used carb cleaner and CLR to soak it then paper towels and screwdriver to wipe all the goopy carbon out. It may be because of the colder weather deflating my tires a bit but it seems like i'm getting worse mileage than before I did the cleaning
but its turbo season

This is also true, hopefully picking up an IE intercooler and CM5-LT + other meth components on black friday. If it gets cold enough maybe i'll see some sub-zero intake temps . Speaking of, I would think it would be ok but anyone have any experience with watermeth in freezing temps. A 50/50 mix should have enough meth to prevent freezing right?

It really wasnt that bad. Whole install took me an hour. The worst part was getting the headlights in. Gotta go at a specific angle to get the tabs in the grooves without the ballast catching on the car. Here is the OSRAM youtube tutorial if you haven't already seen it. I would also suggest finding a way to secure the passenger side wire that goes from the headlight to the fuse panel to the car. I ran mine over the fans and didn't have a way to secure it well and it fell down. Luckily the fuse didn't get caught in the fan but the wire sheath did get worn down to bare wire.
