    I used a rubber mallet. It was not easy as you dont have much room to get any motion but it did work. I think it took several tries and finally went.

    I'll give that a shot Steve. I tried using a plastic headed hammer..
    Maybe it's just too light. I do own a plastic dead blow hammer
    I'll have to find it and try that.
    During my "search" function, I did find a thread by GH telling
    us to use a bead of silicone as well as the rubber O ring
    to avoid boost leak..
    Still not warm enough here to get on lake.. Late winter..
    I'm itching to get on the lake.
    Still trying to find the "sweet spot" for my RR intercooler..
    Just can't get pipes/ hoses to line up properly.. Frustrating
    to work all weekend on it and not feel like I accomplished chit!

    IC blockoff

    I put silicone on the mating surface stuck it in as much as I could with my hand and than gently tapped several times and it popped right in!!!

    Make sure you line it up to get it straight. I used a rubber dead blow hammer and mine went right in. Are you in Kansas? I went out Sun for the first time this year for a few speed runs. It was cool, but water is warming up to 50 degrees. Not too bad in a wet suit. The wind was blowing hard and we couldn't resist jumping a few rollers.

    Dave, yes I'm in Olathe, we go down to Pomona. That's where we keep our camper and have several friends there.
    I wanted to try to get to Hillsdale (10 min. drive) on Sat or Sun, but just could not get my RR intercooler installed.
    Bet it was rough out there!!

    Definitely use silicone to keep from having a boost leak. It was dang challenging trying to get that ic cover in but finally went in. Let me know your thoughts on the S3 when you get out.

    It was. Wind out of the north, not good for most lakes in Kansas. I'm from Wichita. You need to come to Cheney. Best sand beaches in Kansas (west side of lake).
