Hello all, I'm stuck. I got the old charger off and I can not figure out how to get the intercooler detached from the lower intake. I can see long holes where I'm assuming screws are holding it in, but nothing is grabbing. I have the zzp full size on the gen 3 motor. Anyone know how I can get this off?

Who put it on? They most likely rtv'd it and that's what's holding it down now, there are no screws that hold it down after the blower is off, but depending the the quantity of rtv you will probably need to pry it off

Ron Vogel installed it back in 2010 for me. Are you sure because I can see deep holes and I gave it some force and this thing didn't move at all. If your saying that the ic is held to the lower intake I'll pry it off but I want to be sure I'm understanding you correctly.

The deep holes are the ones the blower bolts should go through down into the lower intake, that or possibly the two halfs of the core use bolts to hold them together, I've never had to split one before, but yeah I'm betting he used a paper gasket and rtv to hold it down or just rtv, on my own stuff I rtv it and it's a bitch to take back off, you can text me some pics of the holes your talking about if you want but I'm 99.99% it's just rtv holding l it down and your going to have to pry it pretty hard if he used a lot of it, I've gouged the lower intake pretty good taking off intercooler cores that were rtv'd down if you get lucky he used a gasket and just rtv on both sides of it and it will rip the paper gasket apart making it easier to take off but a lot more clean up

Let's be clear, I am not an installer. With that being said, holy cap I can't believe how many things I had to remove to get the ic and lower intake out. Antifreeze everywhere, 2 bent prybar but I was successful. Tomorrow I plan to try to put everything g back on with the genV. And I have to replace a few ic lines. I got frustrated! Can anyone show me where the aluminum elbows go??

The elbows go on the back up top thru the bracket, I actually can't remember what said bracket holds though
