Cleaning inside of intercooler after CCV reroute....

Is there a proper way to clean the inside of my intercooler of oil? I'm doing the CCV reroute tomorrow and want to make sure it is clean on the inside

I'd use some Dawn dish detergent and fill it up then agitate. Flush well and done.

I would add to use hot water, as hot as you could get without boiling and dawn dish soap. Agitate and rinse like was said. You could also let it sit on an angle over a bucket to let as much drain out as possible before you clean.

If you have it out (dosnt sound like you do) when I did mine I layed it flat holes up, filled with water and aluminum safe degreaser, let it sit for an hour or so, then elevated one side slightly and put the water hose in that side and let it run for a while. Remember the oil will float out first.

Ideal thing to do would be take it to a radiator shop have it cleaned and pressure tested.
