Fizzle HE Intercooler install on a 2012 RXP-X (pic)
Ok, so not exactly the smoothest install, mostly because it won't fit with my Riva Free flow exhaust. I had to Mod the exhaust, glad I kept the old rubber exhaust hose to make couplers out of. The stock hoses would never reach, so good think I had the strainer ready to go. The location bracket works ok, but with this hull mounting it up a little high would have been better! The exhaust would be easier to route.
I'm not thrilled with the exhaust as I think it should loop higher to keep water out of the engine.

wouldn't you want to fill the intercooler from the bottom rather than the top? Just making an observation-- I do not have what you have and I have not read the directions.

I don't know followed the instructions. I think!

I had cut my aluminum exhaust tube to shorten it, sort of like you did, and it kept popping the hose off, without the raised bead, even with a T bolt clamp, I ended up putting a raised bead on the tubing with a blunt chisel and a hammer,
you fill the intercooler from the bottom so the air bubbles come out the top hose,

Nice tool, I have a Tig welder and I welded a bead all around the tube at the cut at the bottom. It was so much work reshaping it to be a small beveled lip. I cheesed out on the 2 at the top.
I will weld them or make that tool if I have any problems.
Thanks for the advice
