Cleaning Air Intake System: How To

Ok so I bought some intake cleaner and took apart everything from the airbox to the air intake. Then I sprayed it down like a wet t-shirt contest. How long until I should put this back together?

Uh, I don't think mine has been touched in the 79,000 miles it's been alive. Maybe Ill wipe it down when my K&N intake finally gets here.
