Default Help ,need Lee intercooler for 8-71

I have a lee cooler that is plugged with sand and dirt . Can't get it out ! Where can I get another one ? (Cheap) or just a core would be better ?

Can't it be taken apart/disassembled and cleaned that way? Maybe Lee can rebuild it?

I don't know . WHen I did call a while back ,some women talked to me and didn't seam to interested in helping . She said to buy new cores . SHE says $3300 each ! The problem is there are hundreds and hundreds of rows of TINY cooling fines . Each rome less then a quarter inch thick ,and every other one is stepped up and them down . At every step is a tiny spot to hold a peice of sand or dirt . I don't see any way to get it clean . If there was some way to pressureize it and shake the hell out of it ,maybe ?? I don't know what to do . MAybe change pulleys for less boost and run without coolers . By the time I rebuild the motors there won't be much left for new coolers .

Try calling Dustin Whipple. I think they make a cupronickel replacement core.
