Does anyone have a magic trick to clean an aluminum intake?

I bead blasted it a couple of years ago, it's very old. looked great then and I sprayed a little clear sealer on it.

Lacquer thinner worked for a while, but after a hundred Carb changes and experiments it has the yellow 91 octane stains on it again.

Now thinner won't work, Muriatic acid won't even cut it. TSP doesn't work, purple degreaser doesn't work.

I was thinking of trying Bar keepers and a wet dry vac.

Don't really want to pull it again just to blast it.

Powder coating looks good, I usually just spray it with hammered metal paint. Easy enough to recoat.
