    Intercooler performance seadoo v yamaha

    A quick question. Has anyone got any performance data on the performance difference between the standard 215 seadoo intercooler and the standard Yamaha FZR cooler.
    I wonder if removing the seadoo one and fitting a stock yamaha one will be any gain? I know the small size of the intake on the sd one is a killer and the yam one will go in easy for a "no buck gain"
    I am sure some one will have some flow numbers and intake temp data.

    Cheers in advance.

    I kind of think the seadoo one is a little basic to be as efficient as the yamaha one given size for size but I am sure some one has done the testing and will chime in.
    Cheers

    The Yamaha core is very restrictive...... Its sold copper, Heavy and only uses 6 cooling bars, and there core is very narrow.

    The R&D insert with a spacer makes the stocker better, as the core is wider,(more airflow), and the spacer makes it alittle bit bigger air tank




    I can post some pics of it tonite......I posted some in the PWCToday site in the Yamaha section Winter mods FZR

    My thoughts were they were both designed to flow similar hp from the resective factories but the yam one is more conventional in design. I just thought adding the yam one to a seadoo with an upgraded wheel may be enough to do the job.
