What is the best way to clean the throttle body? I have my engine out and need to clean it, it looks oxidized.

Depends on how you define "best". Best cleaning would be Castrol Super Clean, however it will still be oxidized. To remove oxidation you'll have to polish it and coat it with something. That type of metal just oxidizes naturally.

I might try sand blasting to remove oxidation then clear coat afterward.
