    Intercooler/Engine Cooling kits, Options??

    I have a multi part question here, hopefully someone can help point me in the right direction.

    I recently moved to Florida where the water temps are much much higher than what I am used to. I was looking into upgrading the cooling of the ski. RIVA offers the Engine Cooling Upgrade (which looks like nothing more that fittings and hoses) and R&D Offers an IC Cooling Kit and an Engine + IC Cooling Kit.

    Im assuming the IC Cooling kits from R&D are for the stock IC? If I were to get the Fizzle IC, would I be able to use the Cooling Kits, or does the Fizzle IC not need additional cooling based on its design?

    I would rather spend the $600 on the Fizzle IC, provided it doesnt need upgraded cooling and make my own Engine Cooling kit.


    Thoughts? Im really looking for long term reliability (hense the desire for upgraded cooling)...but I know in a few months im going to replace the IC. I dont want to spend the $150-250 on cooling kits if I wont need them with the Fizzle.

    The Jfizzle IC is the way to go. You will need to run a dedicated cooling line to it.
    The R&D kit is good for parts, but you'll need more than what the stock IC can give you.

    So your suggesting to get the Fizzle, and then create my own cooling? I would imagine I would use the same setup as stock just larger diameter fittings and hoses.

    Yes, you can create your own, but you want to run a dedicated line from the pump strainer to the intercooler. Then it's also better if you run an additional exit line and pisser for increased flow. Using just the stock setup woul limit the amount of water because it would still be divided between the engine cooling and the IC.

    I have two dedicated lines coming from the strainer, one str8 to intercooler and one to the Turbo, i blocked the original intercooler exit, i am dumping the water in a thru fitting on the back of the ski, works like a charm

    Awesome. Thanks for all the help. Im going with the Fizzle, and will work on building upgrading the engine cooling when I install it.


    Thanks guys!

    This might be a pain, but do you have pics by chance?
