    How much water pressure on the intercooler

    Hi, is there much water pressure coming into the intercooler? Reason I ask is the oem hose clamps seam quite whimpy... And I don't wanna see them popping off...

    Thanks Ian

    I have my water routed from the RIVA I/C going out the side of the boat. This makes the water line bend in somewhat of a U shape. That exit hose has came off three times. I finally replaced it with some better clamps.

    Do you just have the stock cooling lines? If that is the case, there is not much pressure from the stock cooling system to the IC. Pretty wimpy.

    Mine is setup the same way and I haven't had the outlet hose blow off yet. Ive got the clamps pretty tight on the hose around the outlet fitting on the Riva cooler. I'm assuming thats where yours blew off.
