    intercooler fault

    Hi guys,
    ask you, did you ever break the original intercooler after 10 hours?
    then I replaced it with aftermarket done about 30 hours, then 2 months ago I dismount for invernare and I realize that is broken
    how is it possible? and yet every time I finished I always use the rinse cycle

    P.S.


    sorry for my language, I write with google translator

    Do you have a picture of your intercooler bracket (mounting plate)?

    Do you ride in salt water? Do you put antifreeze in the intercooler for the winter time?

    Can you describe what part of the intercooler is broken?

    I only go in seawater
    the photo you see attached is my aftermarket intercooler, I think this is not broken, and I put it in a tub of water and 1 liter of antifreeze throughout winter
    practically original intercooler has laundry outside, attach a photo later
    while the aftermarket is broken the entire
    I was right to put him in a tank by pouring 1 liter of antifreeze?

    Yes you can but for performance and engine longevity I would not recommend it at all.
    the air temps going into the engine would sky rocket and cause pining and poor engine performance
