    Swapping my Riva gen 1 IC for a XS IC.. what IC to use and wat size couplers to use?

    Like almost everyones Riva Gen1 IC, my Gen 1 is causing my ski to over heat the exhaust...
    So that being said, what XS cooler should I buy?
    I plan on running me riva gen 1 IC pipes and bracket...
    I've pm'd fizz but I have not had a chance to measure my Ic pipes...
    Just hoping someone has already done this...
    Thanks!

    You can ebay water to air intercooler and find the xs style coolers. Your existing pipes should be ok but you need different couplers I believe.

    I'm not sure what the exact type, whatever fizzle sells with his kit. Pretty sure there are 2 2.75 couplers and then 2 2.75 reduced to 2.5.

    and two 3 to 2.5 reducing couplers (silicone intakes). The cradle in the bracket will have to be bent down very little.

    You will also need 2 1/2 npt X 3/4 hose fittings that you can buy at silicone intakes also.
    but do i need 2.5 or 2.75 to 3 in couplers?

    I think either should work, I would probably get the 3 to 2.5 couplers. Make sure you use good t-bolt clamps
