    Heat sink drama

    Running e1 with type 13 cooler and Gary Watson engine cooling kit And when first starting to ride rpm is 8400 and going 79.4 mph but after 5 min of running I starting to loose rpm and mph down to about 76mph I believe this because of intake temp as water temp is quite warm ATM. Is there anything anyone can recommend to help with cooling? If I touch the cooler it is cold so I believe that is working but the blower and charge pipe if burning hot. Thinking of going to a et low boost wheel so maybe get away from the high heat with this boost level.

    So you have a 1/2 inch feeding the intercooler?

    What sort of engine cooling was done?

    MY 09 sho is pretty stock and while top-speed is about the same 1st 5 min and the rest of the time, I swear I can feel a power difference.

    I'm 100% sure it's intake temps pulling timing out

    Sounds like heat soak
    Do you have one extra cooling line or two

    I also had a problem with the exhaust leaking into the water jacket that caused a heat problem with high speeds
    But was fine the rest of the time
