Default varsol, IC...cleaning?????

I just washed my intercooler inside and out with varsol. i just wanted to make sure, after the fact, that it was ok to do (a guy at a performance shop told me i could). i also cleaned the pipes that run to and from the throttle body, AMM, and turbo.
im lookin for more stuff to work on so if anyone has any ideas on what to with no money id appreciate it. also should i rinse everything with water or let the varsol evaporate?

i've used gas plenty of times and it works without any damages just make sure you let your IC dry for a day or two

After getting an elbow joint welded onto my turbo to intercooler piping i had a lot of metal shavings in that pipe. One could only image what kind of harm could be done if that crap got in the engine. I just ran the garden hose throught it with high pressures to get the crap out. Then I used rubbing alcohol to clean up all the oily gunk that built up in there (shavings could had gotten stuck to it). After the alcohol wrinsing that pipe was like brand new only with a new elbow welded on.
