Look what the mailman dropped off...
Just got in today
I was wondering if I can polish or sand down the inlets of the intercooler. As you can see they are pretty rough and Im thinking airflow will be restricted.

I wouldnt mess with it. you dont want that crap falling in the cores. The inlet and outlet are big enough to make up for rough edges.

Hook up a shop vac hose from the outlet/exhaust side. Plug it onto the outlet on one side of the XS and let the air blow the crap out of the port while your cleaning it.
This way nothing will enter the cooler and your risk of debris is not a problem. Make sure and wear safety glasses

Geo: if your handy with a dremel or rotary file, you can smooth out them rough spots, then finish it off with wet/dry sandpaper if you want. The shop vac in reverse sounds like a good idea...PR...
