Default best way to clean an LS6 intake

I have an LS6 intake I'm going to be installing on my car, want to clean it up before I install it, as you can see in the pic, I want to get rid of that "orange" film or whatever that is before I install, thanks.

I just put it in a sink with warm water and dawn dish soap since it cuts through the oil and washed it out multiple times

Well to clean one really good takes a little time . Dawn liquid dish soap is not bad , but I would not do it in my sink. The best household cleaner for this job is Pinesol any flavor will work , get a plastic storage bin big enough fill at least 4-5" pine-sol straight or cut 50/50 with water let soak and flip. Wipe down rinse .May want to get some nylon brushes , Q-tips and other tools, to get into crevices and corners they the worst areas to clean. I prefer Pine-sol over simple green , purple power or any of the automotive degreasers. One fun quick and easy method is take it to the car wash, select engine degreaser or tire cleaner and spray away. Pine-sol will not stain or damage Nylon 66 or the rubber gaskets.
