    XS intercooler install help

    Its been 7 month since i took apart my rxp 215. now i cant remember how the plumbing to the XS was installed. I have one inlet in front and one outlet on rear. Where do they connect? On the front of the XS cooler in the center The small hose i know. but the bigger one no idea, same with the back. If anyone has detailed pictures of how it should be connected that would really help.

    The hose coming from the pump transom water inlet goes to one of the intercooler connections (front or back) and the hose running to the bottom of the exhaust manifold hooks up to the remaining intercooler connection (front or back). It does not matter which end of the intercooler you connect each water line to.

    i think i already mixed a few hoses. (i just put engine back into the hall). Do you have any detailed pictures of where exactly each hoses goes? I also have a sand filter installed, now i am really confused.

    put in a T after the GROCO(towards the front of the boat) and run a line from the downward part to the front of the IC and the other line from the T goes to the front of the exhaust mani as normal. Run a line from the back of the IC and dump it overboard to reduce pressure

    looks like my XS intercooler has a hole inside. Is the core worth anything?

    I have my incoming coming in to the back of the IC first because it makes the install much cleaner. Do you think there is much difference?
