    Jim,

    First find the fitting that you're going to use for the bleed. The thread size on that fitting is going to dictate what size drill bit and tap you need. Most use 1/4" hose and 1/4" NPT or 1/8" NPT. A quick google search will come back with what drill bit you need for the respective size thread. A local harware store might have a thread kit with the correct bit included already. Not sure if you have Lowes in Canada, but they have this threading kit. Once you get the correct bit, drill into the highest corner of the intercooler plate. Make sure you consider what angle the IC is at when it's mounted. It's usually the top right corner. You only drill into the plate. You need to be sure to not drill into the intercooler core or you will have trashed the intercooler. Drill and tap the cooler upside down so gravity helps clear the metal shavings. Then thoroughly wash the intercooler for further cleaning measure.

    Hope this helps.

    -James

    Just make sure you dont use to big of bleeder..You only want it to bleed the air out and not the water..You will see some water come out BUT you want as little as possible..You need the water for cooling and if you use to big of a bleeder you take a chance of bleeding off to much water..I actually use a brake bleeder screw on mine..

    Go with smallest possible on both fitting and line.
    I used 1/4 to 5/16 fuel line and flowed way to much water.
    I had to pinch it down some, In order to still cool the exhaust enough to my liking.,.

    If you have a 1/8 npt tap then use it with small barb.

    can someone explain how 1/4 or 5/16 line could flow to much water? in my pea brain the waters coming in icy cold and as long as it flows in, through the core, and out who cares if the air bleed is large? just warmed water on its way out?? maybe im not thinking outside the box

    If you bleed off too much water the exhaust will overheat.

    So are you saying the smaller the bleed the better?

    If i remember right im running a 1/4 line and have no problems with over heating the exhaust. I run a pisser but you can hook the bleed back into the exhaust
