See one thing i didn't do was remove the whole throttle housing assembly because yes!...it is a pain in the ass. know of any links for tutorials w/ pics on how to remove this part? i did try to spray throttle cleaner behind the flaps as much as i can and try to clean off the insides and behind the flaps by wiping it with a rag soaked with the throttle cleaner. who knows...there's probably a bunch of build up behind there like you mentioned.
