Default 2000 accord v6 EGR port cleaning

Have 2000 accord with 175k. Shop changed EGR valve twice and engine light comes on following 10 miles of driving. Heard so tech bulletin 99-085 to clean the EGR ports. Any tips on removing the intake manifold and cleaning ports? Any other routine maintenance I should perform while intake is off?

While I have the intake manifold off do you recommend any routine service? Can I get away with just cleaning the ports and not installing the $147 plastic tube?

Jdowen2,
This may seem a little basic, but just spray with carb cleaner? Any seals I need to be concerned with?
I am an old plane mechanic and pilot so this newer tech stuff is a challenge to do correctly for the layman.
Thanks

Need gasket for throttle body. Just spray with throttle body cleaner. I think carb cleaner is more corrosive but not sure.
