need info on Intercoolers-

Ok heres the situation- I found black tar in my turbo today. Figure the intercooler has to be caked up with the junk.
1-still lookin for a good way to clean this stuff out.
2 Is the banks Intercooler system worth the extra cost. Looks to be about double that of OEM. But with the Banks you also get all new boots, new tubes and new Big Hoss intake elbow.
3 what kinda price am I gonna be looking at to get this thing boiled at a radiator shop?
I did the CCV mod today so now the bleeding has stopped just have to wonder how much damage has been done. Thanks guys

Black tar in the compressor side? Wouldn't be from the intercooler

Found the tar in the boots and tubes coming off of intercooler and going into the turbo.

If I got a new intercooler I'd go with a Spearco rather than the Banks.

You mean coming from the turbo? The intercooler is after the turbo. If there was somthing in the hot side pipe (passenger side) its not from the intercooler.

Re: need info on Intercoolers-

I have the Banks, let's just say I'm glad that I bought it used. Fact is, unless you're doing heavy hauling/towing, a larger intercooler and plumbing is a waste of money. Besides, what good is all of that larger tubing when the holes in the intake are not changed?

Because of the plastic end caps, I don't think yours can be boiled out.

I have Banks kit. It is nice and combined with my gogo intake my boost tops out much quicker and increased a few psi. Before I was seeing 31psi max, after 34psi- nothing else changed, analog autometer at the elbow (which I had to tap- not happy Banks elbow has no npt ports). Anyway, good mods for towing but- as Karl said, not worth the money unless you towing heavy and trying to get temps down. I seen 200 drop in EGT across the board, but that is combined with gogo- dropped in at same time.

All that nasty crap is from your crankcase vapors! CCV mod time! I see you did so just clean everything up if the boots are soaked replace them especially if the flimsy! Then just keep driving it it will clean itself inside

+1. It's not a big deal as long as you do the CCV mod soon. I had some oil in my intercooler piping when I put my Banks IC on.

Like others have stated, I like my Banks IC for towing but I got mine for next to nothing. There are a lot of other places for money to be better spent IMO.
