Mark, I've sloshed gas around in mine while upside down to rinse out most of the the oil after the turbo failures I had in the past.
After that I fill my bathtub with hot water and Tide powder laundry detergent and submerge the intercooler upside down in the soapy water, slosh it around and pour it out again and again.... then repeat with cold clean water to rinse it, shake out as much of the water as possible and then install it on the car and drive it for a while on the interstate to dry it out internally.
