I wouldn't trust JUST a radiator shop to clean the fins and such, unless they have done so in the past (warranty the work). If you are referring to the IC piping from the cooler to the throttle body and such (is it chrome painted?).

Greating from a newbie in the mid-Atlantic region.This is my first post with WRxtuners. I have a 2005 2.0 wrx. it has 79kmiles. I love the car but feel it needs a little tweake hear and there. the car runs good but nothing like when it was new. what should my first mod be?? lots of systems to address and not a clue.I did however buy a can of bg44k injector cleaner- which seems to have done a good job. however still not like new. In addition, i wonder whether this car was broken in correctly, specifically the rings??

'Gords' makes some stuff my friend used on his truck a while back.

I'll look for a link.


Here is a truck box like my friend has.
