Kleemann coolant change help

I have a Kleemann supercharger on my 2006 SLK55 and I was wondering if the intercooler shares the coolant resovoir with the radiator? AKA if I do a coolant change, will I change both the radiator and intercooler coolant at the same time

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

Not the expert, but I would yes as my coolant was changed when my supercharger went in and then sc reservoir topped to the mark

see this blurb from my Supercharger thread
getting ready to put coolant in

Why would you be changing coolant? per maintenance manual, coolant usually is not changed until Service at 150,000 miles or 15 years

In the maintenance email from the tech at kleemann, they recommended every 24k miles, or 2years roughly to change the coolant and intercooler coolant. I brought it to the shop for its yearly checkup and had them look at the coolant and they said it was ok but would need a change soon. I have had the car for about 25k miles. 40k total on the car.
