    I would at least blow out the water in the intercooler with compressed air, then fog the engine per the manual (through the fuel rail and down the plug holes). This is especially important with the problem of rusting valve stems on the '04 engines. And don't forget to treat the gas...Ron

    I just went into my garage, popped the lines from the strainer to the IC's, and poured antifreeze until it pissed out the back...which started out as water then went green. I put a bucket under the back so when it levels itself off it will be fine...

    You can do one of two things...You can take the intake line off and force compressed air through there...After doing this i recommend running some RV(Pink) Anti freeze through there. OR you can take the Intake line off and and pour RV(pink) antifreeze through there till you hear it running into the waterbox..After you hear it going into the waterbox then i would pull off one of the exhaust hoses off the waterbox and pour the rest of it in there..

    That is when you prepare your ski to experience temperatures colder than the freezing point of water. (this phenomenon actually occurs in some parts of the world)
