Air gap intake

Hello, I have a new air gap intake on my engine and was just wondering the best way to keep it nice and clean. I'm sure someone out there has some tricks or tips. I've tried looking on the Internet, I couldn't really find anything. I want to keep it looking brand new! Thanks !

To keep it looking new you should have did the needed mods before it was installed. When you got the intake new, the best thing you could do to keep it looking good was by clear coating it with Eastwoods anti yellowing clear.

or you can
squirt "easy off" oven cleaner on intake. dont freak out, it will turn pitch black. then use etched aluminum wheel spray cleaner. it will come out shiny clean.

Thanks! It's not really dirty, I just had a water neck that leaked a bit with my old radiator. I have replaced that and my radiator, no more leaks. But the front of my intake has a tiny bit of light orange/brown staining. Th aka for for the info. I've been hearing about using wd40? Anyone tried?
