intake valve cleaning

just cleaned the intake valves on my 1le and what a difference does it make! I have about 21k miles on the car and they were pretty caked up from carbon and a bit of oil. looks like i need a better air oil seperator system as the factory one doesnt work all too well. anyone else clean there intake valves or use a system to do it without removing intake manifolds?

From having a catch can on my Mustang there was a lot of oil in that thing between oil changes, more than I ever though and even though it's atomized or whatever back thru the intake, I chose to not have that going on. Still haven't put one on the 1LE, yet.
