    You guys might want to start drilling/tapping these intercoolers and installing sacrificial anodes if this continues.

    Fresh water riders = no problem

    I will have to say that RXT have more intercoolers leak than RXP but I have fixed both. The out come is not good if you keep runnning them. One was a fresh water boat. You could see were the solder was not applied right in the bad spot. I got seadoo to warrenty it even though it was out of warrenty. RXT I think were built first in 05 with the new style intercooler ( Solder probs?). I have not had a 06 in my shop yet with a leaking intercooler (anyone else?).

    THere are built massive with big copper cores so they only weak link would be the solder?

    salt water riders only

    salt water riders if u have your crank vent disconnected or if u are running a catch can make sure to spray some wd40 into your intake frequently to keep the salt from eating your CS and your IC , the reason why the crank went connects to the air intake is corrosion protection from salt , the oil entering the intake will coat and protect the SC and the IC , in my opinion those with the new riva rear intake should spray wd40 into intake at the end of the day to disolve the salt build up
