Crudded up intercooler-

While doing some work last week I got a chance to look into the intercooler and it looked like my chimney after a hard winter. I assume its from the egr system. When do you know its time to change your cooler? Does a supper dooper (fillin the blank here) do any better than stock?

So it was sooty? id like to know what that was. Mine just had a little oil in it. Possibly you have been running with a leak in your intake that has been sucking in dirt. Which is not good.

Just very thick tough greasey gunk. No dirt. But it did look like creosout (I know thats wrong...) Just like in a fireplace chimney that has burned too much pine. And brake cleaner didnt touch it.

Not really. Just a whiff of bad fart-smelling crank case gas once in a while if you don't run the hose far enough back. If you do the canister/return thing then no worries. It does help - you can see it vents gas and oil mist right before the compressor wheel and then into the intercooler it goes.

There can be adverse effects of running a CCV reroute mod. One would be that it has to run on a decent vacuum as to suck the fumes from the crank case. If it isn't getting the vacuum needed to suck it out than it will cause your rings and seals to go bad inside the engine and turbo. Also if you run it to far back and its winter time outside the vapor can and will freeze inside the hose and effectively block it off completely causing engine and turbo damage. All things to think about when doing this mod to your truck.

I would suggest using coil cleaner like the A/C guys use on condensers. I used this on my intake and it was amazing to see all the black gunk boil out. I used the aluminum tape to block of the holes and let it boil it out.
