I use wire hangers and scotch brite. Cut the hook off, straighten out, thread scotch brite through hanger, chuck into drill and go to town.

Ok, so your talking about the initial cleaning, it sounded like more of common practice.

I always cleaned mine with boost Im just playing. I would take my old twin piping apart and clean just to make sure my big charger wasnt pushing any oil thru it.
