    Yea, basically clean it and make sure the oil level is not overfilled.

    Agreed, using gas is dangerous, please be careful and flush I/C in well ventalated area.


    Anyone have anything other then Gas to flush with that would be safe?

    I have heard dishwashing detergent with water works good for the intercooler. Never tried it though

    ive heard the same but i think that is more on the water cooling side to remove salt deposits.

    Or brake cleaner that doesnt leave any residue. If you use water make sure you let it dry throughly, you dont want it sucking in the water when you start her up. Simple Green works wonders too.

    thx

    I ended up using gas it looks to have worked well. I did end up opening my BOV and wanted to know if I should try to adjust it or just order the block off plate or neither. Thanks
