Default Q: Method to bleed Intercooler? - Series VI

Would I be ok using an airlift tool to bleed the i/c? I recently removed the water crossover to install a s/c dipstick. I've looked at the manual and can't quite figure out how to fill/bleed.

Is the intercooler pump is pushing the coolant through the system? If not then burp it at the HE. I would loosen the clamp and pull it loose carefully until I got the air bubble out. I eventually upgraded to a larger HE a 2013 GT 500 intercooler pump and I have my system setup so that the water enters the HE from the bottoms so it will naturally force the air out.

The i/c pump is running, i can see it cycling water thru. Im guessing just running it with the recovery tank cap off would cycle all of the air out right?

And if there were air pockets in the i/c system it would just affect iat's right? Is it possible to fry something the same as if there were air pockets in the rwgular cooling system?

If you see water moving through the tank there shouldn't be any air in the system. Yes you are correct if you had an air pocket in the system and no water was circulating it would effect the AIT's and it could effect the power of the car = cutting the timing.
