    Tip of the day - Sealing intercooler blockoff plug

    Hi guys, way back when the forum was smaller this was common knowledge so i just thought i would bring this topic up to hopefully prevent problems for someone in the future.

    When going to an aftermarket intercooler be sure to put some silicone on the stock intercooler blockoff plug before installing it. Do not rely on the O ring seal to do the job. This will most certainly save you from a boost leak down the road

    Yup, I think this fixed my problem. I put a good amount on the blockoff itself, then I put some in the V-clamp that holds it in place for some extra insurance.

    Hey Jerry, I see you don't have your blog anymore. Any chance you still have the pics of your boost gauge taped into the blockoff? Could you PM them to me or something? I hooked up a boost gauge and can't get any readings from it. Might be because I had to put a thread extension on the plate to tap it. Thanks.
