White gunk in inlet pipes??
Hey guys i have just removed all my intercooler inlet, throttle body hoses and what not, and there seemed to be a lot of whitish gunk spill out of and coating the pipes... What is this?? surely it cant be any good to get in your motor.... Also how do i remove the VTS system so i can take out my resonator?? thankyou

i had that same stuff in my hoses, it looked though that it was not recent and kinda gooey..anyway i cleaned everything up and have not seen that white stuff since, maybe has to do with engine assembly or something - all i know is that its not there anymore, im @ 26 hours.
removing that resonator...my my...have fun with that. i did not want to "disturb" the vts, so i moved everything else i could out the way (hoses) and cut that mammoth resonator up into 6 pieces. there is a thread on this...somewhere..
cut it up. YOU WILL NOT PUT IT BACK ON!!!! use a sawzall and a 12 pack.

HAHAA cut it up.... Its funny u say that. I was getting so pissed with the thing that that came to mind... But i dont think i would actually do it. Is that really what u did? I had the bloody intercooler out, the mount for it loosened, pushed it as far out the way i could only to find that i couldnt quite squeeze that F***kin resonator through Drove me wild. Did u replace the resonator with a straight pipe? how does it sound? wats a sawzall??
Back to the gooey stuff.. I was shocked by how much was in there.. Surely that cant be good for the motor?? I will clean it up and see how i go... Thanks a lot for the input!!

Cut the thing out takes way to much time to pull out the vts and take out the IC bracket. I did it per riva and I will never do it again. All my buds with P-X's laughed when I told them I took it out the right way.

The white powder in your IC piping might be the SC rubbing the housing. If that si the case you may need bearings
