    I installed an X IC back in 09 into Hallpass's ski....I notched the lower hull area to clear the pipe, used the OEM mounting bracket from an X boat. I put 8 nut-serts behind it to hold it up.

    Post #47... http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...t=82726&page=5 Actually, I used 8 nutserts on another project...MY BAD... It was for the same setup, held for years for the guy... For this build I used 2 plates of aluminum that I inserted into a center hole I cut...I drilled a center hole that I could fit my hand inside...Made 2 chunks of 1/ aluminum, popped a hole and tapped it, then mounted them inside the hole...Popped a few holes, removed the plates, then drilled and tapped those holes....Reinstalled, then mount the bracket...DONE. 2.5" hose on all...

    WOW ok Looks like you went too alot more trouble (labor) then me so I feel good Now , I just picked up pipes 2.5 il fab them up tommorow and post pic , I just used rivets in side and brang it off enough to clear everything and have the vent at highest point.
    anyhelp is good help I guess the X intercooler is not popular do to the angle on the pipes coming off etc

    Im puting a cooler from a X in my conversion and i was thinking of laying it flat so as the air bleed is at the highest point . im not sure as to putting on its side would work . but im no expert . just my 2cents .

    I have Mine Mounted already Just tried it out , the air bleeder is at the highest point and I have it connected to 2 pissers out the back , I purchased it on here used . I would air pressure check it . I did 35 lbs on the water side .

    I have a problem with motor previously I thought I fixed with new plugs . I have a mis under load , changed coil packs on water ended up not running at all and when I cranked it , it sounded like I lost compression on 2 cylinders very weird . Had to get towed wtf , I get it home and change plugs fires right up but has miss, I have to trouble shoot it more

    do you have the water in/out facing up or down ? sounds like they are up , so does the water stay in the cooler or does it drain out ? the reason i laid it flat was so that it would drain out .

    Yes there pointed up only about 1/2 drains out it leans back , but I flush it after I use it anyway I dont see why It would matter Im Raw Water cooled anyway , the pissers do work you can see the air coming out then its all water after that .
