    You've aleady answered your own question. Fizzle or GEN3, splitting hairs between them. Fizzle has slightly better cooling as I remember, but not as neat fitting. But the two are very close. Fizzle has a great forum following and looks after his guys, RIVA in my experience are on and off.

    I went with Riva only because it is a direct fit with OEM layout.

    I just picked up a 2013 GTX 260 Ltd and now I'm reading all these threads about intercoolers failing? Do I really need to run out and spend a bunch of money and tear my 5 hour old ski apart to put a different intercooler in?

    What is the failure rate on these things? 5%? 10%? 20%?

    Personally I'd go with the Fizzle. The FZR Fizzle IC core is the same as the SeaDoo and it worked well in my FZR with me running 24Lbs boost. I completed the instructions so you can see how it looks in the ski http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=228710 The fitment is really good and a nice cooler especialy at the cost!

    In my SeaDoo when I did testing it was cooler so I dont have any data when it is hot and that is when a better intercooler really shines. But I can say that with the Fizzle IC my ski did not drop 100 RPM on a speed run like the OEM IC did.

    So fizzle f1000 ??? How much are they aproxx,,,,
    you guys running massive boost , and turbos , must use the best you can buy ,, my ski is stock , but I don't trust the oem ones , it was only replaced 20 hrs ago ,,,, do the new ones stuff out as much as the 13 models ,,,, ,, or have they rectified the issues ,,,, , so to be safe I'd just put a good one for piece of mind

    Nobody can answer this question. What I did before I took delivery of my '14 RXT-260 was have Riva install a Gen 3. Yes, I could have left the original in but I only use the boat on my vacations so reliability was of utmost importance to me. But, since I'm the type that has machines blow up on me frequently, my Gen 3 leaked. It's too bad that we have to deal with problems like this but it is what it is.
