Re: intercooler cleaning

I just used simple warm water and turtle wash n wax a cap full in a small bucket then use a paintbrush and toothbrush and get scrubbing when dry just use auto glym super resin polish and looks new, you can fix the fins aswell with a sowing needle to straighten them thats if they not badly damaged by flies

Re: intercooler cleaning

I use FAB by Autobrite, its a APC and Interior cleaner, really breaks the crude down and its safe,
Firm brush and some FAB in a spray bottle.
