Hey guys i have a question for you i ought a barley used banks technicooler kit came with all the boots, clamps, high ram intake, and the intercool, and intercooler pipes.

My questions is this to insure that its fully clean i want to clean it myself before i install it this weekend and was wanting to know how to go about that i have never messed with one of these before, so is it something as simple as spraying some degreaser on it and just washing it and letting it dry to insure that its clean as possible.

thanks in advace fellas

Degreaser wont hurt the outside, try not to get any on the inside block the holes off, unless you suspect dirt inside then it may be impossible to get out, if there is just oil inside just leave it.

I would be concerned about what's on the inside! Some oil from the ccv won't hurt anything but you don't want any dirt in there.

when my big trucks pop a turbo and fill up the CAC with oil and all the other good stuff, I reverse flush them with degreaser and hot water, first I lay them flat on the floor and put a little 409 or simple green in and then fill it up to the top with hot water, if your are cearful and don't spill water all over you can see if there are any water leaks(if it don't hold water it aint gona hold 40psi) then I stand it on it's side, cold side up and keep flushing hot water through till the water is clear( you can hook your water hose up at your washing machine hook up if you don't have a hot water hook up) then just let it sit up side down with the ports at the lowest point, could also use a blow gun to blow it out. I have the Banks cooler and they are one nice unit, I think they are built beter than the ones that come on the big trucks

Hey Randall, find a local radiator shop, and have them "hot tank" it for you, it will clean it out inside and out, and shouldn't take too long, then just let it air out, or use compressed air to dry it out.
