    OEM Sea Doo Intercoolers Leaking

    I'm doing a bit of research so I'm posting this poll on how many people here have had their stock Sea Doo intercooler fail on a 255 or 260 HP Sea Doo. Feel free to post how many hours you had on the intercooler when it failed and if you have been through more than 1 intercooler. I've split the intercooler styles into the years they were made for the poll options.

    EDIT: I forgot to enable multiple options to be selected. If you replaced your stock intercooler with aftermarket after your stock intercooler already failed please select the option that says it failed and reply to the thread that you replaced it with aftermarket afterwards.

    I have the stock 2010 RXT-X 260 IC and has never leaked, this was the last good year for OEM IC's. The problems started in 2011.

    Agreed. The majority of the problems I have seen with the 08-10 had to do with ballooning from too much water pressure. That style had the best performance of all the stock intercoolers as well.

    2012 operating *I think* without a leak currently at 42 hours. Plan to pull the TB hose and run it on the hose before it goes back in the water to be sure.

    I ditched it before the carnage, was not worth the risk to me. Would be nice to get some factual failure rates overall?

    Mine was good for 80hrs. No issues at all. I have 4 friends down here that all have 2012+ rxpx&rtx and all are fine. Seems to be more of forum drama even tho there are failures. I just upgraded IC due to mods tho some I'm not worried about it anyways.
