Update on Riva Gen 3 IC
I had Jerry remove my previous thread as it was a bit misleading. I jumped the gun on this one thinking that I had a second blown cooler, but it appears to be fine. With the cooler removed I did two tests on the core, and both of them passed. At this point all I can assume is that this cooler condensates...... and condensates a lot! Last time out the ski had a slight surge at wot like one would do with a leaking core, and when tested in the ski it was blowing water... quite a bit. Due to my experience with the first cooler..... I've been keeping a close eye on this one. So for now, I'm gonna toss it back in..... and keep my fingers crossed

try wrapping the cooler in armaflex to help prevent condensation

Running too cold is not a good thing.. So the Gen 3 is too good.. LOL
I don't know, I would stick with something else if that's the condensation that builds up in there.. That will slowly kill a motor

Yes.... both videos were running on the flush hose with nothing pinched off. The first cooler was definitely blown though. This one must have just blown out all the condensation.

I have one also that I currently do not have in my ski, but I guess if I put it in, it would need some sort of restriction in the water routing?

For those who may not have seen the video..... this is apparently all condensation in the core after a ride.
