    XS Intercooler - I am an Idiot

    Well after all the great info I learned on this site - I purchased an XS intercooler for my alreay stage 3 + rxp. Plus the Riva extended drive shaft kit hoping to bust 85. I was running 82+ with a rude 1, riva ecu, rear intake, RR intercooler. This is not my life but a golfers little hobby.

    I live in Minneapolis - so this happens on a small time scale.

    I did all the updates - my speed went down. I'm pissed. time for triage. Changed back to the stock pump, RR intercooler - speed back up. took the pump apart - full of water - bad front seal. Obiviously my speed loss. OOPS. NOT. I just checked the XS intercooler for leaks. Well ----- I didn't realize that the bracket attachment points on both sides of the intercooler go thru the intercooler into the boost area. I only used one of the attachment points - to the other 10mm bolt hole was wide open. If you use the XS intercooler - make sure the attatchment points are sealed.

    I did test the JD open loop system and loved it. Thanks Dan. Under seat temps are so much cooler. I run the Mississippi for miles on end - flat water. Speeds were higher and more consistent.

    So now - next summer - I get to retest the XS intercooler , the Riva Extended pump, and now the modified throttle body - (rossomo) and the Riva ride plate.

    My apoligies to all those who test so well. I thought I was better than I am.

    It will be a great year.

    Peace

    Tim

    Ha, Ha, Ask sundance about his! That little hole takes about 1.5 lbs of boost out of your boat and around 2.5 mph. We know that for sure.
