SO you expect to start your car up...

You go into the garage and get in the car...

You try to start it...nothing.

There's a puddle of water under the headers...

What could it be?


Maybe....
























a bit of a IC fluid leak...ouch!!!

You are looking at the entire contents of an 04 cobra's intercooler system sitting in the lower intake.

Re: SO you expect to start your car up...

Not sure myself...

Personally...I will be running NPG coolant when I swap out the intercooler....

Basically, he is one that runs a lot of ice in his system at the track...so the contents of the system get flushed after each track run...obviously, he doesn't fill up with antifreeze in the winter.
