Cleaning inside the hyper charger?

Ok I need to open the hyper charger to clean the filter, what I need to know is what can I use to clean the inside of the hyper charger itself? I can do the K&N but it looks like it needs a good cleaning in the inside walls it the housing.
Throttle body cleaner maybe?

A soft cloth and some WD 40 is all you need to remove the gunk from the inside of the Hypercharger.

Reason for mild cleaner is the throttle body and butterflies have a special coating that looks like dirt build up on them it needs to remain there.
