    Spray fresh hose water in all three openings and turn it upside down and around ,you'll probably see some milky water(oil)come out so keep spraying until the that comes out is clear . put the IC on a towel and let the last of the water slowly drip out ,do the same to the other side to let all fresh water drip out over time,leave out in the sun to air dry ..

    Before you spray water you can add gasoline (1-2 cups) before to "swoosh" it and mix it with the hose water as you spray to help breakdown the oil..

    Is there something else I should check before assembly? The previous owner have not service it like you should... Oil and filter + exhaustfilter and sparkplugs are new + ic cleaning, what else?

    Looking at that intercooler i would go at least a few rounds of gas ran through pour in the manifold side first and let it drain out the other.... other then that you could check the belt and probably add a touch of grease to the idler pulley and spring tensioner mounting areas. Should be good to go

    use a pressure washer on the i/c if possible, and like mike said but make sure you split the idler pulley washers off and push out the sleeve, clean it with wet and dry paper and refill with grease. drain the bottom of the airbox also.

    Clean the airbox too! All that oil went in there before it made it to the intercooler

    depending on what model 300 it is it may just need a newer type can, its pretty normal to clean the i/c so it also could have had a heap of hrs on it the op hasnt stated. water temps also effect the amount of blowby. personally i would leave it be and not attempt to change its path.
