    blowing out water

    My son sank our 08 rxpx. I have done 4 oil changes and the oil seams clear, i also have blown out the water from cylinders. When i put the plugs back in and tried to start it... it cranked then locked down! I pulled the plugs and turned it over and water shot out of cylinders. what am i missing? Where is this water coming from?

    Not sure if anyone else has had this kind of accident but best i can tell... The pin that locks the seat down slid back and broke the seal under the seat. When the boys rolled it and got thrown a good ways from the ski, it sat there taking on water. long story but by the time they got it back to the dock, the back end was under water! It looked like a huge bobber!

    Pull the intake manifold off and drain it.

    Is that the only way? Seems they should have a plug or something...

    Could the intake hose be removed (maybe the TB also) and tilt the trailer up high? Finish drying the intake manually if TB is removed?
    Also wondering if that was enough to hydro lock it

    Remove intake manifold, intercooler, and supercharger. You'll be surprised at the amount of water held within each.
    Before bilge I had a near 'bobber' situation and my charger was full. Kinda funny to dump such a large amount of water from it.
