    2012 rxpx 260 with valve faluire HELP!!!

    Hi, I have a 2012 rxpx. 245 hours on it.
    The pressure on the cylinder #1 is 50 psi , cylinder #2 is 110 psi and #3 was 120.
    When the dealer cheaked for the issue, they found that the exhaust and intake valves are damged due to the salt water. The intercoole has no leak its working correctly and the jet was NEVER flipped over, So there is no way the water can get to the engine. Everything else was working well exept foe the engine mount need to be replaced and the big air hose that is connected to the supercharger.
    They asked1630$ to repair it. Is this normal??? The stealer told me that this issue is normal, it happens alot, but Im not buying that. Also they told me that the water comes in the engine through the IC when I shut my engine down, there is some water vapor in the IC that moisture and goes to the engine. That means this issue will happen again.
    The oem intake and exhaust vakves are expensive (600+ for the whole set).
    Does any one knows wich car has the exact same intake and exhaust valves?
    THANK YOU

    Not normal. Something is going on here. Water ingestion of some sort.

    Id replace the head and all new valves. Plenty FS in the classified section. Gl

    WOW.
    I agree with Scott.
    Maybe you do have a leaking IC?

    Has your ski ever been towed? Or, have you ever loaned your ski to a friend who may have capsized the ski and didn't tell you??

    Did it run normally up to the valve failure?

    most likely how the water was getting in. engine moving a little and letting the drive seal leak then into that air hose most likely getting sucked into the supercharger
    maybe

    Well my IC has no leak and No I did not give it to a friend. Thats why Im going crazy. I dont know where water came from and the stealer told me how the water came in but I do not belive it.
    As you can see from the pictures there was plenty of water I can use the salt from the head for like a month.

    Got any warranty left? If so they need to cover it, the whole problem was probably caused but the bad motor mount tearing that hose like Winterstick said...

    My ski ran perfectly untell I noticed that the engine at idle was running on 2 cylinder but at acceleration all three work but there is a little vidration. Also I need to change the throttlebody which costs 900$ .
    The air hose need to be changed because it is too soft but there is no hole in it or anything.

    With that being said, you clearly ingested water at some point.
