    So i was going about my business replacing my knock sensor, when I pulled the intake manifold out i realized my valves had green all over them, after further inspection I realized that the intake manifold also has what appears to be anitfreeze in it. I took some pictures so you can see exactly what I'm talking about. I'm assuming this means that my IC went bad (Still running stock IC)? Guess its a good thing I caught the problem, and this may be why I cant get 70 MPh with my X-charger....?

    The manifold is out not and i'm going to pull the IC out and take a look, I'll report back with my findings. And pictures

    Oliver,IC uses water instead of antifreeze....It sounds like a blown head gasket or something like that!!! Get us some pics so we can help you out!!!!

    Yes the water you are riding cools the IC and the Exhaust.
