what kind of solution do i use?
or do i just use water and a cloth?
I'd use a high pressure wash to blast out anything in between the cooling fins, then wipe dry.
fuckkkkkk no, you risk bending a bunch of fins like that
low pressure wash with a windex mixture
no need to wipe dry either
thats a big no no scott. intercooler fins are very delicate and a high pressure washer will pretty much destroy the intercooler. I have a FMIC on my wrx and all i do is wash the endtanks and a little bit of the actually fins very lightly. Then to clear all the little crap out every so often I take some needle nose plyers and just go along the intercooler picking out crap that gets stuck in the fins (bugs, little rocks, etc...)
those are not like normal radiators which can stand that, mine at least is very very delicate and high pressure water would fuck it up. I also use the needle nose plyers trick on my IC.
