Good Info. I’ll have to search more on this. Is there any kind of a periodic maintenance (cleaning) that is supposed to be performed on the intercoolers or is it more of a “troubleshooting” issue— I looked at them online just out of curiosity, they’re pretty expensive. Absolute, nice write up on the cps (color difference/performance) on the other post too.[/QUOTE]
If you mean cleaning the intercooler as periodic maintenance. I'd say no. I only did it because of the rumor at the time that they get plugged with oil, and I had just spent 35k on high performance parts, and wanted to clean it. It was that point that I learned they don't plug up, unless you have motor issues putting more than designed into the system. Like a hole in a piston. Lol. My stock motor had nothing wrong with it, hence my clean intercooler. But yes, some residue does escape the boots some how, so have to clean my motor once a year. I can understand the stock boot issues, but the Riffraff ones I got baffle me how the residue still gets out. But it does. Minor cleaning for a clean enviroment. And as I stated, after 35 k in high performance upgrades, my CPS data could be specific to my motor. I never did any testing on the stock motor.
