That’s promising, don’t understand how it would have gotten on the left side only of the rad though. And not on it’s back side.

That was my first thought also. However I totally isolated the intercooler and it’s commections for a boost leak test and it all held pressure fine. Also if what you suggest is occurring I’d expect to see the grime on the end tank on that side however this is not the case.
