Intercooler gasket in motor?
I had just removed my stock intercooler, and noticed that the gasket on the end of the cooler was not there. It also wasn't in the intake manifold. Could there have been a chance it was sucked into the motor? My ski was running fine yesterday, until I had ingested a little water through my front air intake. Ran 8000 rpms majority of the day when it wasn't as choppy.
I would assume that if the gasket was in the motor, wouldn't the ski run like shit?

Not all have it. I think it was updated in 06

What year? The early models had a O-ring on each side and not the bigger rubber gaskets.
DO you have a O-Ring on each side?

I have a 06 RXT ski. I have 1 of the rubber gaskets, but can't find the 2nd one at the end of the intercooler.

Don't think there is one. Just the o-ring

I am looking at the microfiche on the OEM website, and it shows 2 rubber gaskets. The intercooler also has the imprint for a rubber gasket that is suppose to be there. This is frustrating!

Take the intake manifold loose. Its not that big of a job. Not sure what year ski it was, but remember seeing a picture of a I/C gasket stuck into a intake port and valve on here before.
