Default IC leak Help!

I have an IC leak and I need some suggestion on how to address it. It's not visable, it's somewhere down in the core. Is there some sort of liquid sealing option? If it needs to be sent out any recommendations?

I have already talked to you outside of this thread... I think the following would be your best options in decreasing order:

1. New intercooler
2. Aluminum Welding
3. JB welding

Obviously to repair it you will lose the fins. I dont know if there is a way to really replace the fins. Remember any service you have done to the intercooler can easily exceed the price of a new-used intercooler... so it might not be worth it, especially cosmetically.

Anyways, just posted this info for other people's refrence. If can let us know what you did about the situation, i think this would be helpful in the future. Good luck!

Are we racing yet?


depending on the condition of the intercooler, even if you fix this hole another might pop up and another...

not worth it... I would say...

What type of intercooler do you have? I have a JDM WRX one with super low miles if you need it. It's almost brand new. Let me know. garface98@aol.com
