Dave:  I am running the belly pan (I wasn't when the RS2 goodies went
on).  However, I did want to wash out the IC because of concerns about
an oil film on the inside (I seemed to have a lot of oil in the old
Michelin Man hose). BUT, my mechanic said "it was fine" and didn't do
it.  Now I am not sure and may have to go in there myself and remove the
intercooler and wash it out to eliminate it from the list of usual
suspects.  Dave F.
