Thumbs down

I must have some ******* poor eyesight, or the person that made that video has some mighty poor resolution camera.

and YES, I watched that video prior to asking.............That's the tutorial?

No, I don't see the hole.

So, I might keep asking the question until I get a satisfactory answer or a video I can actually SEE what's going on.

It is retardedly easy to do. Just remove the two 15mm bolts to drop the air dam. Drill beside the intercooler mount at the lowest possible location of the side tank. 1/16" drill bit.

Want someone to hold your hand too?

Seriously. Drill a hole in the lowest point of the intercooler with a 1/16th bit. You saw in the video where its located. It literally takes 30 seconds.

I would recommend a 1/32 inch hole or smallest hole possible. 1/16 will work too but wished I'd made mine smaller.

You would need a 1/4" hole for everything to escape. Unfortunately this don't quite cut the mustard. It helps but it don't blow it all out a lot still accumulates

Please elaborate. Are you saying water still will accumulate?

I can assure you that no water will accumulate in the area where the hole is located. It must have been resting in another area of the cooler. Drilling a 1/4 inch hole would not drain anymore water out than a 1/32 hole just to clarify. You can see in my video that all of the water is quickly expelled from the 1/16 inch hole thus my recommendation for a smaller hole.
