    Intercooler "bleed line / pisser" blockoff question

    Hi guys,

    Just installed a 09px IC on my 12px. Just wondering what you guys have used in the past to block off the pisser / bleed line on the older cores? I used a rubber cap w/ silicone under it and then zip tied it around the nipple. I just want to be sure this will hold up. The last thing I need is my hull filling with water right before my bilge setup goes in. I don't want to have to make a hole in my ski just for the pisser because I will most likely move onto a bigger and better IC in the next year (then you can all fight over my old one ).

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    Why do want to block it off instead of using it for what it was designed for?

    PS- zip ties won't be enough to hold the line on. Remember the day you towed my ski? Yeah, the zip tie on my bleed line blew off. It's clamped now

    Because my 12px doesn't have one on the stock intercooler. I would have to drill hole and rought a line out of the ski to have it fully functional. Does anyone have another way of plugging it or capping it?

    I am sorry but I don't understand your logic. Your replacing an inferior IC with a superb IC, but don't want to use it to its full potential. Simply T into any line that exits the ski now, like the water box lines or something else.

    That pisser line ensures that the IC is full of fresh cool water all the way to the top without an air block. I would be looking for ways to let that IC take a piss!

    This is the advice I was looking for! Can I "T" off the line on the top of the waterbox? I just need an alternative from making a new hole in my ski.

    I went with a pisser overboard so I could see the stream and make sure everything was working correctly, no water coming out something plugged or wrong,
