For winterizing, is blipping the throttle a couple times sufficient to remove water from the exhaust? I dont have an air compressor.

It all depends where you live. You might have to do other things to it to keeo the water from freezing

Don't you have a flushing fitting to the right of the pump on the shoe?
I just connect a 3' piece of hose to it with a garden hose fitting on the end, pour in about 1/2 gallon of pink antifreeze.
Start it up, keep the hose on and the end above the engine height. Blip the throttle a few times. If no pink stuff comes out the exhaust, add about 1/4 gallon and restart and blip again.
This will put antifreeze through the intercooler and exhaust, and your done.
I am in Ontario, colder than Ohio and never had an issue doing it that way.
