I have a Race Aero twin turbo set-up and wish to pressure test the radiators.
I am looking for the best way to pressure test it and find out if there is any leakage. Since I have never had intercooler apart, I think it is in my best interest to ask those who have.
The engine is currently being rebuilt, so the intercooler is still attached to the manifold, but off the motor. I assume the intercooler needs to come apart in order to remove it from the manifold.
My questions regarding testing the intercooler would be, does the front cover come off first or should the front cover remain attached and a device be made to pressure test the core with air pressure or can it even be done that way while still attached to manifold.
Are there two radiators inside or one? When the front cover is removed, does the radiator(s) stay attached to the front cover or will it come off? The front cover has one water inlet and two water outlets, so what should I expect to find inside.
As I mentioned earlier, I assume the intercooler is attached to the intake manifold inside, is that correct?
I haven't done this before, so what do I need to be made aware of?
