Cleaning the throttle body

97 LT1 About 2 hours of cleaning so far and it's starting to look shiny again. I'm going to have to do something about the oil coming out of the passenger side valve cover and going into the throttle body so it doesn't look like this again. Inside the intake manifold looks absolutely horrible but I don't think I have time to take the intake off and give it the cleaning that it deserves right now. Maybe that can be a winter project for next winter.

Have you fixed the oil leak from the valve cover. And while checking oil leaks, how's the front timing cover doing? Oil leaks there car destroy an opti pretty quick.
