I did it over the weekend. No issues. Just had the Mrs hold it at 2000rpm while I sprayed the can into the intake (remove hose and spray straight into manifold).

Seemed to do a reasonable job, not perfect. I'm going to get a couple more cans and give it a few more hits over the next couple of weeks.

Noting you have posted in the gen4-1 section I presume you have an NS model.
These tend to buildup carbon in the intake (more than other models) unless you've had the EGR blocked since young, or an oil can installed.

If you suspect your having problems due to buildup, the cans of spray are not up to the job as there's probably a lot of oil/carbon buildup.

I cleaned the intake on my NP last year by removing it first. I can guarantee you a tin or 5 of intake cleaner won't do much when you have 5mm of buildup. However, the liquimoly is by far the best solvent I found to dissolve it. I first manually removed as much as I could, and then finished off with the spray.
I think liquimoly would be best effective as a regular service item.

Hope this helps.

If that's the case, you could just remove the EGR and spray it on directly, instead of just 'generally' into the intake manifold. This way, with it off the car, the dissolved gunk wont go through the cylinders. You can target the spray to he affected areas.
At least then the EGR error will be at bay until the full clean is done.

No, but if it does get damaged just get it replaced during the full clean.

Took apart like you said and yes was very dirty ,come up brilliant with the spray and i cleaned the pipe that goes across the head too attached to it . The inlet/manifold under the egr was coaked too so i just hoovered out a little as that be the main clean i think .

Put together but the light still on any suggestions?
