    clogged intercooler? *pic*

    taking a look at this pic taken with my phone, would you say this inter cooler is clogged and causing performance issues?

    looks like you def. got some oil going through there and i can't quite tell whats at the bottom, almost looks like rust i assume it is as there are water drops in the entrance tube itself? sure that things not cracked or did you sink it recently? if its oil im sure you can clean it out

    Looks like salt water corrosion to me.

    would this mess with the performance on the ski? i recently had the head gasket replaced by the dealership and once i got it back i was reving 7800rpm and only doing 68 after adding a free flow exhaust and relocating intercooler, vs 8200rpm and 72 before i took it in.

    i never ran it after getting the ski back, so i dont know if it was the mods to bring down my performance.

    Yes, with that ugly rusted IC it could have sprung a leak and caused your RPM loss. The XS IC's are cheap enough to just throw yours in the trash and buy a new one.

    Oh and the dealer could have put your timming gear one tooth off when replacing the head gasket, but by the looks of that IC you suddenly sprung a leak.

    I just had mine off yesterday and it had oil in it, cleaned it out really well and gained almost 2MPH. It looked like it was completely aluminum though. If that is rust where did it come from? If you are getting water through there you need to find out where it's coming from bro.
