[DML] Major preventative maintenance GOING GREAT!

Hello everyone,

I decided to grow some balls and take off my manifold in preparation 
for replacing the slave cylinder. To my complete delight all four of 
the bolts that hold the Y pipe came out without breaking! I was scared 
at first because they would not budge. I just applied increasing 
torque in between rests so that the bolts could cool down. Eventually 
they all popped loose! I am going to replace the hoses under the 
intake, replace the Y pipe bolts with stainless ones, clean the unholy 
dirty mess, and possibly paint (?) the valley before bolting the whole 
thing back together. I am also replacing my accumulator and related 
hoses at the same time. My car is nearing mechanical godliness. :) 
Here are my questions:

Should I pain the valley, or just clean it out?

Is the plastic part of the vacuum switch supposed to spin (move) 
freely against its base? 

I noticed carbon deposits on my intake valves. Could this be from the 
previous owner who drove the car on premium for three years or from 
some other issue?
