Default Pulled the intake out, crudded up

But not as bad as I've seen others. 180,000 miles. Good half inch worth of junk in there. Tomorrow ill be pulling the valve cover and rotating the engine to clean out the ports. Have a look. Ill report back here with performance updates, if any.

Start adding some Power Service to your fuel. It will help keep things clean. Plus it boost the cetane. Wal Mart has both Bottles, Grey for warmer climates and white for colder. Check it out!

ULSD shouldn't cause the clogging up nearly as much as the older fuel did.

Ours looked like that at 114k. Got it cleaned out and all is well now almost 10k later!
