Flushing intercooler: what with ??

Fella's,
I'm doing a job on my other, turbo-charged car, and have both the radiator and the intercooler out. What stuff can I use to clean/flush these out ?? For the rad, I'm considering buying a can of this radiator flushing stuff, but I haven't found anything such stuff for the intercooler. I believe the core onf both is aluminium. Dirt in IC is mainly oil. Would appreciate your help,

thanks,
V.

I would use a solvent that dries.(something that will disolve motor oil).....as you will likely have oil and dust in it....
