I've just pulled my intake chamber (manifold?) as I prepare to go for an exhaust/intake manifold gasket replacement.
I know it's not uncommon to have carbon buildup in these rigs but since I'm cleaning mine out as part of this process, I was wondering if there is a good way to reduce future build-up.
I've seen mentions of an oil catch can. If that is what they are used for does anyone have a photo/info on an FJ62 install?

This is what I'd hope to avoid with the catch can.
On the bright side, it's gone 230K miles and I doubt it was ever cleaned before so its probably a critical addition but it would be nice no know if its been done.

yeah the cold start injector definitely gets the worst of it. Also, the PCV port on the back of mine was pretty crudded up. May be worth blowing that out with brake cleaner.
