    Exclamation I think my 2013 rxpx IC is blown 15 hours please read................

    Ok here are the symptoms, warm the ski up, I started doing some aggressive starts from the hole, everything felt good. After the the 10th time or so, sluggish out of the hole not building boost, about half on the stock gauge. Took the ski out of the water and I see evidence of water spraying up the OUTSIDE of the IC discharge hose as far up to the intake manifold. Took off the discharge hose from the IC and ran the engine, no water comes out of the hose.

    Took a flashlight and looked back at the IC and can see evidence of water (not much) around the right side (throttle body side) of the IC. And again water spray up the outside of the hose.

    I'm kind of baffled because if I hit the throttle sometimes it will hit hard and once it gets going it revs out fine and feels strong. Full rpm to 8250.

    What do I do to verify this shit box IC? Thanks in advance guys.

    you have to pressure test the i/c out of the ski. there was a thread recently on this, but you just need to hook up water to the inlet, plug the outlet and look inside the cooler for water. you probably are leaking, but verify before spending $

    Are you sure you just didn't blow off one of the boost hoses?
    Supercharger slip wrong from dealer?

    Hows the oil look?

    My ic was full of water when it let go, like 4 liters worth.

    I verified that the water I was seeing came from the vacuum bailer vent holes while making tight turns. But the ski still has intermittent low boost during hard acceleration from the hole. Super confused. Might have to take it to PPG and have them test it.
