    Flush stock intercooler on an 07 without taking it off the engine...

    I want to flush the internal intercooler without removing it from the engine.

    Seems that if I remove both clamps holding the hoses on the intercooler...
    Attach a hose to the inlet and route the other end to a garden hose...
    attach a hose to the outlet and route the other end to a bucket...

    I should be able to turn on the hose...without RUNNING THE ENGINE... and flush out the intercooler.

    I can then reverse the hoses and reverse flush the intercooler.

    What am I missing here? Will the water be able to intrude anywhere else?

    I am going to be installing the Groco strainer in a couple days, and I want to flush this thing out first.

    Please let me know if I will be screwing something up by doing this.

    No need, on a stock setup when you hook up a hose to the OEM flush port next to the pump, the water runs in reverse, and will flush out the IC...

    Thanks...is there a hose I can block off so that I can flush without running the engine?

    Also, is there any kind of cleaner that I can safely run through the stock flush on the back that will not harm the internals and help loosen up any crud in the intercooler?

    I was hoping to be able to flush the intercooler like this:

    without having to remove it...not sure I want to run the coil cleaner through the flush inlet into the whole system.

    NO NEED!

    The OEM IC is so wide open internally you will nto have any crud in it...At best, just take off one line and pour some vinegar in it. Let it sit, reconnect the hose, and flush it for 5 seconds...

    Danny, or anyone

    "OEM flush Port" next to pump, is that the connection from the outside of the ski, looking at the pump, in the upper left. Not the one under the seat.

    Thanks

    Not sure on a GTX, but on an rxp the flushport is on the right of the pump. Its the only thing you can hook up a hose to.

    K. ON the RXT and my GTX limited, it's on the left side, looking forward. Overflow pisses out the right,

    Yes, it's threaded for a hose.

    Thanks
