what do you guys use to get your stock air intake tubes so clean? i've been scrubbing around at mine little by little ( just 10 years worth of dust, haha) but i can't really get around all the ribs on that intake tube well and its one of the more noticable spots on the engine.

spray it down with a hose (avoid battery and alt)
spray with slightly diluted whitewall cleaner.
let it soak for a minute or two.
then rinse.
afterwards i hit the whole engine bay with engine enamel clearcoat to shine it up. after that, a hose rinse of every few months keeps it lookin good.
