OK Boys Here is MY XS IC Complete.
Well if you were following my old post I fabricated a real EASY way to put in a XSpower IC.
VERY SIMPLE A CAVE MAN CAN DO IT!!!
1st Off you need a XSpower IC (Ebay) or Siliconeintake.com IC.
2nd you need a RR OLD IC bracket. The XS sits on it PERFECT!
3rd a set of IC pipes found on EBAY Cheap. This is the ones I bought for $106 Shipped and they come with the TOP NOTCH KICK A$$ T-bolt clamps. Very good. I went 2.75in as to not have to use any reducers and it is big pipe.
4th The IC block off.
What you have to do is cut and remove the baffle and install a powerpipe or thru hull. I used a power pipe.
Then in the back were there is foam you need to cut the foam out very nice like in the pic and use it for the IC to sit on. I actually cut and groved a little spot for the exhaust to sit in it nice. (over 70hours with my RRic like this! Perfect!) Not one problem!
After the foam is nice and stable you connect your water connections to the IC. I used two 90degree fittings for the front and back. then connect a little piece of hose to the back fitting and sit the IC back there on the foam. As the IC will not fit with the bracket already installed.
After the IC is back on the foam install the RR IC bracket with bungie to the pump and under the IC.
Then just bunggie the IC in place just as the RRIC would be held in place.
the water flow goes like this. From the pump to the front of the IC then out the back of the IC to the exhaust manifold.
Now you need to fab your IC plumbing. All I used out of my kit I bought on ebay was 2-90 degree pipes and 1-75degree pipe. 5 of the silicone couplers and 9 T-bolt clamps and again theses are the awesome t-bolt clamps if you buy a kit from the guy I did. I went with 2.75in pipe as the silicone couplers that come in the kit will work on the 3in inlet/outlet of the ic, but still be good for the 2.5in scer outlet and throttle body inlet.
Ofcoarse I had to use a metal cutting chop saw to cut my pipes to length and debur them.
I think I have said all I can say here are some pics and I will get one more with all my clamps installed and tightened up....
Please give me all your input.....
positive or negative as i love to listen and learn, but wanted to help people find a easy way to build a XSpower IC kit.

i personally dont like how much piping all these home brew kits are having, length that is, i want my ic close to the enging as possible like the riva...i think with longer charge tubes you might have some more lag than a ski with shorter pipes, but thats just my thinking....

Good info Austin. Thanks for sharing. Installation looks good too.
Im anxious to see how this IC performs. I'll be testing Mac's real soon.

Thanks Guys! It turned out very nice.
I will have a pic of the bracket and it all tightened up later after dinner.
Meeper, My RRIC had more length and bends to it than this. I don't think it will be all that bad.
ALSO REMEMBER I ONLY HAVE MAX $400 in this thing. At best

One thing I want everyone to understand is I wanted to keep the stock exhaust exit. So this setup is used with a power pipe. And for a bunch of people that wont cut there hulls for a thru hull this is the ticket.
MY OLD RR IC is gonna go on my other RXP. And I had to shell out $150 bucks for the NEW RRIC offshore bracket and may I say it is KICK A$$....
BUT it might get SOLD after I test this.
OH and I wonder if I could make a kit to sell????
