That was my initial thought, then i considered how much less efficient the I/C would be with warmer water.. Anyone else got an opinion?

I would think Air as well, but I think I read somewhere that
the water temp due to the I/C is more effective.\
I do Not experience heat fade as much on my lightly modded
GTX as I do on my RXT.
Could be lack of IC on gtx OR that I'm pushing more boost
on the rxt

I've never noticed heat fade due to riding my ski for a long period of time and beating on my ski. The warmest I've ever seen my lake temps is 73*F so maybe the water temps going through the IC and cooling the intake temps does have an effect???
Now I have noticed changes in RPM throughout the season due to increasing air temps, water temps, humidity, and lower air pressure. I usually lose around 100-200RPM from May to mid July.
I'll tell you what, there is a HUGE difference in how snappy the throttle is depending on water temps regardless of whether it's 70*F out or 40*F. With water temps in the 50*F range or cooler my ski is nuts!

So does any one know for sure wat effects the perfomance more?

new thermostate will help the motor run cooler in the heat.
