    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!!

    You must need a special tool to get onto that nut to loosen the VTS shaft or no?

    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
