    Intercooler flushing/draining?

    I put a thread up last week about oil at the dump valve and I now think it is excess oil in the Intercooler and pipes leading up to the DV caused by the old turbo popping. How hard is it to drain/flush the intercooler, could I do it myself does anyone have a process

    If its a standard one the in shouldn't need removing but i would to be sure, i'd take it off get some kind of degreaser/detergent, leave it too soak for a while, get a flex'y brush of soem kind in there and scrub as best i could. Then get the hose in there till all the suds etc have gone.
