HI guys, i am looking to get a R2 and a C3. i have extra cooling lines to the intercooler and the spacer kit. the ski currently has stock ecu and a C1. will my cooling be sufficient bearing in mind temps in the Uk are a lot cooler than most of you guys are used to.

I have a similar setup to what you are looking to get even down to the extra cooling supply and exhaust to/from the IC. I live in Northeast Indiana and the water temps are fairly cool here too--I would guess water temp is 80° F and I get heat soak after riding hard for a little while.
My first pass or two I turn 8400 RPM's then it drops to about 8150. I feel this would not happen with an aftermarket intercooler.
BTW, I love the R2/C3 combination I have on my ski.

+1 with Craig.
You can run the R2 C3 combo on the stock intercooler just fine. You just may lose more speed and rpm to heat soak then you would with an aftermarket intercooler. You can always add an IC later on if you wish.

Side note--when the ski is cool, AFR's are at 12.0 with an occasional blip at 12.1. After a couple runs, AFR's are fatter at 11.8 with a blip to 11.9. I think I would have to add fuel (a bunch of?) to my present Powershot settings if I had an aftermarket IC. Wonder how much boost I'd pickup by just adding a good IC?

I picked up a pound of boost with the JD IC and I came from a type 19. Imagine the gain you will see coming from a stock IC. It will be sick!

You'll make more power with less boost. They are a fantastic mod. 200 rpm for only 200 bucks. You can't hardly beat that! I bet you'll see a lot of guys running C3 and cam gear combos, going just about as fast as E1 guys without the cam gears. Wouldn't that be something.

AFR should be fine also without having to do anything. I was talking to Bill and he found it interesting that my ski actually got a tiny bit RICHER after the S2 setting was on. He said he has noticed the same occurrence. That is the ECU compensating, or possibly "overcompensating a little bit.
