    Lol yeah it def hadnt been disturbed in 9 years! The butterfly was full of gritty stuff too as well as gooey black gunk - glad to get that away!

    I replaced the idle control valve too while I was at it. The difference is amazing. It idles correctly now on start up and doesnt keep wanting to cut out at lights and junctions etc. Well worth doing!
