    Question Riva Power Cooler Maintenance

    So i took my power cooler out, cleaned it, put it back together again BUT...

    What is the torque spec for the 8 nuts to be tightened around the upper housing? I am using a digital torque wrench that reads Nm's, in.lbs, and ft.lbs
    Called Riva, but their answer was,... " 14 in.lbs and go from there..." not sure to where though. I will pressure test up to 20 psi prior to re-installation.
    Thanks in advance.
    Monty.

    here some pics, this is after a 60hrs... i would recommend doing a clean up every 100hrs. and it was a bitch to take a part due to corrosion.

    Update: Torqued down to 25 inch pounds, Pressure Tested at 15,20, then 25 psi, held it for an hour without any leaks.

    Yes it is. Its a great intercooler to break down and clean up. Few offer that option, the only part that sux about it is the BOV install.
