As title please, or am I just causing more problems than leaving it alone?

contradiction through that thread?!

I know it sounds like I'm nit picking, but is it a case of abbrviations or missed guides, pointers etc

On the passionford forums, we spent a good 20 minutes writing down a STEP BY STEP guide even a 3 year old could follow!! That was just to remove the air filter box and clean up the metering head!!!

I have a good understanding of engine etc throughout my performance days but I can never get my head arround guides here first time, it took me 4 times to read the coolant change KV6 thread cos steps were missed or in the wrong place lol

ICV for instance, great thanks, I know what it means, where the bloomin heck is it and what opening??????

If the weather stops raining, I certainly will do

You've done a pretty good guide there, so that should be intergrated in a thread someplace

BTW, could someone please for the love of god, tell me if it's worth cleaning it or not

I didn't ask how to remove it, just is it worth it hehe

Thanks for replies though ;)

I take it you mean the plenum. I had mine off on both cars to clean out and yes I would do it again. Loads of crap came out.

You also get a good chance to see how the balance valve is working and file it down if it's sticking (the frame warps).

ICV is always worth a regular clean, easy to remove and a bit of carb cleaner does the job. You will have to reset the ecu after refitting though (unplug battery for 10 minutes or longer).

Every time I ever took it off it used to rev to 3000 and back to idle repetitively until it was reset.
Did you do it when cold and do the ignition switch before replacing?
Could be why, always good to reset ECU I bet though...

In the photo below, the IACV is the bit directly behind the battery (ECU) case. Stuck out on the side of the throttle body. It has its own air inlet, on my photo it has its own little air filter.

Remove plug and 2 x torx screws and pull it out. Clean with carb cleaner. Re fit.
