    Stock Intercooler Removal

    This is a little heads up to make sure you remove the seal (Donut) at the other end of the stock intercooler throttle body end. Otherwise it will pass into your cylinder.

    What bothers me is the fact that when I pulled the IC I knew that the seal was there I searched the forum and the parts diagrams. After not seeing or reading anything I said it will be OK... In the back of my mind I knew it would bite me in the azz.. And it did but thank god it was in the driveway and not out in the ocean. Rule #1 trust your instincts and do not second quess.
