Water Ingestion :(
I'm driving home right now after a good day of riding. When I was coming back to trailer my ski I noticed I was only getting 7600 RPM's. I am fairly certain I injected water thru my rear air intake cause I was out jumping waves and I bogged down a few times while I was out riding in the surf. When I get home I'm going to pull the intake manifold and remove any excess water left in there. What else do I need to do to get my power back? I ran it wide open all the way to the ramp (about 7 miles) to try and flush anything out. I was still getting between 8-9 lbs of boost @7600 so its not the charger slipping. Thanks in advance for the replies.

check the oil to see if it's milky. change it until it's not. change the plugs. fresh fuel wouldn't hurt. hope and pray that you didn't bend any rods.

The oil wasn't milky at all and it runs and idles like normal so I wouldn't think I bent a rod. My RPM's are just low is the only things I notice. It was pulling 69.1 at 7600 so if I get the revs back I think it should be running like normal. Anything else I should check? I'm not cavitating at all so I don't think it has to do with the pump but I'll check it anyways when I get home

did you notice that the RPMs were higher than 7600 right before the incident? if it runs fine, and has no 'permanent' water ingestion issues like a bent rod or crappy plugs, your problem must be elsewhere. it may be possible that the intercooler is leaking, causing your low rpms, bogging, but not total failure (yet).

I just got home and pulled the intake and it was clean. The only thing I noticed that made me believe I ingested water was I can off a wave (nothing big only about 2 ft) and when I landed the motor sputtered for a couple seconds then started running as normal again. I rode for a while longer then went out and swam a little. After that I got back on the ski and took off. I spun it around and did a 180 after which it sputtered again making me think there was a little residual water in the intake manifold and it sucked it up again. After that I thought to check the RPM's and noticed they were down I never checked them earlier in the day so I don't have anything to compare off of. Last time I rode it they were at 8050 but the temperature was 15* cooler. Is that change in temp enough to rob 400 RPM's?
