    Intercooler pressure testing

    Hey guys, quick question, we are just finishing up a rebuild on an 05 R12X after the previous owner failed to divulge water ingestion. Lower end was fine but we still installed new bearings throughout. The head needed a few new valves from sitting and not being flushed properly so we had the head redone with updated springs as well. Anyways, we're going to pressure test the exhaust and intercooler and were wondering at what pressure is best to test the intercooler? 10lbs? Not sure what the honda turbo boosts to.

    Thanks in advance guys,

    Mike

    Stock boost is 13 PSIG and the water PSIG could go as high as 60-70 PSIG

    Thanks Shawn, held 30psi for 10 min (only gauge i had with me). Andy, we didn't take any going back together but i'll post some of the motor assembled which isn't much help to anyone unfortunately.

    The water ingestion is either a leaking exhaust water jacket, launched with the plugs out, broken plastic cable stop nuts and a spraying shaft seal [in the order of likelyhood].
