Is there a reason for doing so?

Mine's not even on the car anymore, but I can't see how it would get gummed up or anything like that.

My HKS stepping motor is full of oil and I'm just waiting for HKS to get me that info. Should be the same.

The PCV throws so much oil into the intake during Auto-X events that it just fills it!

What I'v heard that works is Electric Contact Cleaner spray. It's an electronic part and can short out if gotten wet!

the day before my last service/turbo install, i removed the intercooler and it contained the usual fine film of oil.two weeks after the service/turbo install i removed the IC again and it was absolutely dripping with oil i was a little worried that maybe the turbo seals were bad,but i checked the oil it and it was way past full.this is where the fumotovalve comes in handy i drained about a cupful of oil out,flushed the intercooler with petrol,installed the samco hoses,and reinstalled.two weeks later i removed the IC again(im really good at this now )and the hoses/IC/throttle body/turbo,are all bone dry.all i need is the info to clean the boost control solenoid, and i will be contaminant free.i

hey leonardo....when you find out from HKS can you let me know
