    Intercooler Query

    Hey guys
    Intercooler has been leaking , is this from overboosting or is the seal worn out ?

    Its just what they do over time there is an "O" ring and I also think they dip them in vanish to seal.
    Look up Diesel smart in the Vendor threads , they do a great change over IC for around half of what others charge.
    They are tested to 60psi and have a 5 year warranty, if you decide to change which you'll have to do eventually,
    change those hose clamps to constant pressure style, then forget about your IC playing up it cant,
    one less thing' Just had a good look at your picture again you might be lucky, behind, that black outlet pipe in an "O" ring between it and the IC ,
    go buy another about $7, remove and clean IC inside and out then tape up and pressure test the IC in a bucket. make sure its dry before you re install
    You wont want much pressure push bike pump should be heaps

    With that much oil residue on your IC research MAF cleaning/ intake manifold cleaning and catch can install .> provent 200 . before its too late .
    The price of excellence is dicipline , the cost of mediocrity is dissapointment .
