    stock intercooler removal

    Hi, I searched but really couldn't find the answer for this.

    I have an RXT and I am trying to remove the stock intercooler and the thing doesn't seem to want to budge. Obviously I have taken off the hoses and the clamp that holds the intercooler to the intake manifold.

    I even loosened the entire manifold from the head, because I think I read that that needed to be done(might have just been for clearance issues on a RXP, but since it wasn't budging anyhow, I figured that I'd give it a shot).

    I also gently tryed to use a screwdriver to pry between the forward end of the intercooler and the intake manifold to no avail. I really don't want to break anything. Is there something obvious that I've forgotten to do, or is this normal maybe because of the O-rings sticking or something? Thanks for the help guys.

    I gave it another shot, with the gentle prying she finally started to move and came out just fine. Thanks anyways.

    I just checked the manual for that, and it just says, Pull out" I was just about to say, maybe give it a little twist or so, but good you got it out.
