You can use compressed air ~10psi into the bleed hose of the intercooler with a hose on corresponding port on the coolant reservoir going into a bucket. That way you can drain just the chargecooler box, without spilling a drop, to empty just that for removal to work on the engine or something. Best part of that method is that you don't introduce a big air bubble into the front radiator, as long as you don't drain all the coolant, so the system is really easy to refill.

My system was corroded, I used a solution of a phosphoric acid, hydrofluoric acid and a surfactant. It really cleaned my system out.
Then about 10 years later I wanted to paint my chargecooler, so I bead blasted it, had all the holes plugged up. But then it started leaking coolant into the intake.
So be careful waht you do, that heat exchanger is somewhat fragile
