Fizzle Y1000 Intercooler testing gets a thumbs up!
I installed the Fizzle Y1000 intercooler that can be purchased here http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1945 in my ski in place of the Frozen boost type 14 intercooler and my findings are all positive, all in favor of the Fizzle Y1000.
Previously my best run with my setup in cooler weather has been - max rpm 9180 rpm and max speed of 88.7 mph.
Today in hotter weather I ran a max rpm of 9280 and 89.0 mph.
Not only was there an improvement in top speed and rpm, but acceleration was stronger with the Y1000.
The Y1000 intercooler core is only 1 1/4 inches shorter then the type 14. The length is the same. The end caps are a little smaller making the Y1000 cooler a little more compact than the type 14. I didnt physically weigh the intercoolers, but the Y1000 was substantially lighter.
The other nice feature of the Y1000 core is that the water inlets are on the same side so the water passes across the core twice providing better cooling than the type 14. The type 14 intercooler water inlet is on one side and exits the other so it only has a single pass across the core.
The fitment and finish of the Y1000 was very nice and the install went very smooth.
In the end I am very pleased with the setup and looks like it belongs in the ski.
Below are some pics of the install and comparison to the type 14.
The install instructions can be found here.

Thank you Gus so much for the work you put into testing this intercooler kit for me!
For those of you who are interested in how this intercooler compares to other intercoolers out there, keep in mind 2 important factors:
1) The Y1000 gain over the type 14 and other less efficient intercoolers is going to increase significantly when the warmer weather gets here.
2) The Y1000 gain over those intercoolers will be even bigger the more boost you throw at it.
Basically, the more heat your ski produces the harder the intercooler will have to work to cool down the incoming air. Any decent intercooler can keep AITs in an acceptable range in 70 degree air and 70 degree water. The 90+ degree air and 80+ degree water coming in a few months is where you'll see that the Y1000 intercooler has no trouble keeping up. Say goodbye to the dramatic heat fade issues you might have been having with another intercooler. This core has been tested to 27+ psi on the SHO 1.8 liter and is durability tested and leak tested with over 100 psi of air and water at the factory. Rest assured that you're getting a great value for the money.

I was seeing 22lbs - 23lbs boost at 9300 rpm.
If I added 1 degree to the impeller and Jim's VX plate I feel confident the ski would have been 91 easily and that is with the 3 degree nozzle!
Today was cool out, but I have been out when the water and air was much colder and the testing today provided better results than that day.

Looks like it will move some cfm through it with not much pressure loss
