    Intercoolers on a 2 stroke??

    would anybody have any idea if i could put an intercooler in a 2 stroke? but i would need some way to push air i was thinking about a cordless leaf blower.. what do you guys think of this? I have 2001 rx.

    Thanks!

    I aint taking the bait on this one. Today is not April fool's day, it is the Christmas holiday. You need to wait a few months.

    I think as long as you use a gas blower and dump the exhaust back into the hull, right by the carbs, it'd make your ski scream...

    I installed a 3 inch diameter hole with a flo-rite(home made) in my dash on my Pro 785 and run a 4 inch bilge blower that pushes 320 cfms into the engine compartment. I havent tested it yet on the tach or speedometer to see if theres a difference yet. i'll know this summer if i gain anything from it. But i know its getting a lot more air in the hull than before. a cooler charge too. not sucking hot engine heat anymore.

    it also blows the air right on the Mag cover which cools off the cover and Mag cylinder temp. Thats a bonus even if it doesn't increase my speed.

    Bilge blowers have been done before, back int he old days on the X4 SD's..We use to mount them in the under seat plastic air thingy..But reverse the blower so it blows in not out...Might gain 100 rpm...

    This is quickly becoming painful. If you really want your gpr to go fast put a 4 stroke in it or drop it off a bridge. There is no gain to be had putting an ic on a na 2 stroke. Might as well put a jet pump on your lawn mower.
