    supercharge coolant tubes

    so just kind of curious seem to have some high ass iat's seems like i remember somebody on here posting about pulling cooler charge tubes out supercharger lid and having a bunch of gunk on theirs. just was curious maybe thinking mine could be clogged causing the iat's to be so high in the car, have tim c's heat exchanger and bled the system a few times static and using tech 2 to command the pump on manually. thinking may be a air pocket in it just wondering if anybody had ever pulled the tubes out of their supercharger lid due to problem with them being clogged?

    Never seen one clogged.

    The best way to fill my heat exchanger is from the top hose that attaches to it. You need to do this before reinstalling the bumper cover. Just fill it from that hose till water comes out, then connect it to the top nipple on the exchanger. If you didn't do it that way there is a chance that there is a huge air pocket in the exchanger itself.

    How much water did you put back in?

    It's got about gallon and a half back in the whole system so far I drained and refilled it trying to get some of the dexcool out putting distilled water back in.

    Try to pop the cover off the s/c to see if you have coolant. There is a small, square cover on the firewall end of the s/c. I was able to open mine to top off the coolant and put it back on with no issues. Others have complained about it no sealing back up though...
