As you know this code is related to the intake manifold and may be caused by several potential issues such as the following:

Manifold flow valve harness is open or shorted

Manifold flow valve circuit poor electrical connection

It sounds like you have addressed the majority of these. You may want to double check all connections again to be sure they are free from residue from the carb cleaner as sometimes this can cause connectivity issues with electrical components.
