    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.

    Be Carefull,
    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

    As long as the water inlet line is on the fitting closest to the throttle body side of the core you are good to go!
