    Blocking off intercooler line

    Here is Michigan, the temps have fallen (both air and water), so the makes the R & D intercooler too effective where it is not allowing the engine temp to get high enough to burn off my GIO. I was told the best way to fix this is to block off the line going to put a mini ball shut-off in-line on the extra line going to the oil cooler. So would anyone know which line I'm looking for specifically?

    Tim, the intercooler has nothing to do with engine operating temps. You want the intercooler to drop air temps as low as possible.

    If you are running the R&D engine/intercooler kit and have installed the optional oil cooler hose then for cooler weather you can put a ball valve on this hose and close it off.

    I was told by Glenn how to do that so I am assuming I have that option on there. Question is, how do I find that specific line?

    Thank you
