    Intercooler thru hull fittings

    I've noticed the hole in the thru hull fittings is not as large as the hose. Has anyone tried drilling out or replacing the thru hull fittings to get more water flow out of the intercooler? I've thought about removing the fittings altogether and just run longer hose(s) letting them stick through,sealed with silicone. This could work for the oil cooler too.
    If you are wondering...the hose can be cut at an 45deg angle to prevent the spray from hindering water flow.

    i don't think that will be a solution, it probably creates a problem , instead of doing that just get a cooling kit and run a straight line from the pump to the I/C , i have feel mine coming out of both sides and the water feels pretty cold using the kit plus you will see a increase in water flow big time.

    Ok. Thanks. I'll see about increasing water flow first. I've found out that heat does effect these machines. First put in Sunday morning, warmed it up. Then ran 69.6mph with a full tank. Couldn't do it again later that day. Probably could have if I shut it down and let cool off.
