Same like using chlorine or steel scrubbing pads with stainless steel can damage the passive oxide layer and make it corrode.

That last bit I know because I know a man that tried to clean his DeLorean with a scrubbing pad. Turned into a very expensive and ugly mess to fix.
I always advise a thorough neutralizing rinse. Hadn't considered passive layers. I do warn it will darken aluminum somewhat, but it's acceptable in some applications. Makes brass jets look new. Eats corn syrup concrete like butter.

Iím more concerned with everything being cleaned, than the color of the carbs. I soaked it in a baking soda, then sprayed it liberally with wd-40
