    Stock IC question

    Do you have to loosen the intake manifold to slide out the stock IC on an 04 RXP/T?
    Is there anything to be concerned about when doing so. I know there is two O ring/gaskets, one on either end, if I am remembering correctly from a previous post.

    On the RXP you have to unbolt the intake manifold and lift it up so that the IC will clear the gas tank. On the 04's the IC had O ring seals (one front, one back) on the 05's (i think) they went to a rubber band type seal, also one on each end.

    I dont think you have to raise the intake manifold up on the RXT though.

    As always thanks Jerry,
    Can the two seals be reused as long as they are not damaged? Or is it recommended to replace them after unseating the IC regardless?

    Not sure if 06's are different, but I pulled my intercooler today (just now)
    and I did not have to lift/unbolt the manifold. It was tight, but it came out.

    On my `05 as well. But going back in I loosened the intake...easy as pie. I had like 3 o-rings on my cooler.
