    RXP-X 260 just installed 4" intake and catch can, should i clean the intercooler?

    RXP-X 260 just installed 4" intake and catch can, should i clean the intercooler from all the oil and crud that can get in there? it seems when it's cool she really pulls good, but when it's hot and sticky she won't pull over 8200rpm and it seems the intercooler isn't cooling properly, so wondering if it should be cleaned?

    mods v-tech 8375, 4" intake, catch can, ride plate holes filled.

    Stock cooler will get heat soaked quick. A good IC like Fizzle F1000 will help with that. Here in Texas it's a must do mod with the heat and humidity . Also hear nothing but failures with stock coolers so it's a win win.

    Yes you should clean your intercooler if oil ever went thru it but these motors hate heat.

    Did you upgrade to vtech injectors too ? I thought if you ran that tune with a 4inch intake you needed the larger injectors

    when its hot your motor does not need the same amount of fuel as when its cool/cold
    but you can still bet its lean, probably real lean
