I keep overheating. I`m guessing no matter what the thermo has to go back in. I changed the exhaust temp sensor and it didnt help. Ride plate hot as a mutha and engine oil hot as hell. Stayed in limp mode for 30 mins! Boiling water out of puke tank. Only happens after a wide open run!

Only Three problems it could be.
1. Blown Head Gasket.
2. You reversed the Oil Cooler lines when installing the Thermostat.
3. The thermo is sticking. (but looks like u dont have one, lol)

My riva intercooler had gotten blocked and caused me all kinds of problems got a new one and all was well

No blocked intercooler, no thermostat, no crossed lines. Could it be that 50`s, stock ecu and stock intercooler is dumping too much fuel?

Oh and no head gasket failure, was doing this before rebuild and 50`s.

hoss, i had the same issues when i took the t stat out of mine. i was always overheating. i think without the t stat, the water circulates too fast through the ride plate and doesnt cool off enough causing the engine to eventually overheat. i changed mine to the open loop like 2 years ago and my ski runs so much better and consistant, even on real hot days
