I had mine out when I changed the hoses. I didn`t clean it (I wasn`t having any idle problems) but you`ll probably see some oily, sludgy stuff in the plenum. I did clean the throttle plates/throttle body with carb cleaner while it was apart.

internal shorts in my ICV, so I guess the next thing to do would be to pull the ICV and clean it? I think I need to reset my base idle, but that shouldn't have caused the overly-slow rpm drop offs I was experiencing the other day. Other than a dirty ICV, what can I check for? You guys have been a great help, Thanks!
