    Calesta: How beneficial, if any would it be for me to clean out my intercoolers while I have my car apart?

    Very? Always clean out your pipes (meaning your entire flow path) - shouldn't be anything in there but air. Any debris = less flow + possible damage to your engine later on down the line.

    Ok, I'm *assuming* there's nothing in them but since I have it apart I'll clean them out.
