Fizzle Intercooler water routing GTX-IS 260?

Someone else can confirm, but the one that come from the IBR will be the IN and the one that goes to the back of the hull and to the exhaust pipe is your OUT.

On these pictures you can say, that both lines comes from the IBR area.
It is different like every other model I see before, include my RXT-Xas.
One of these two lines is very close to the thru hull at the back - exit - I guess it is the out-line.

I found out the way it should work!
Thanks for help!

Lower 'short' one is your IC inlet (coming from under the IBR
Upper 'long' one is IC outlet
Remove this short one from the T piece and route the supplied hose to the front of the IC.
On the F1000 the connections are on the front instead of on the side like the OEM.
Connecting to the IC you've 2 options:
1) Inlet under & outlet upper. Drives the air better out.
2) Inlet upper & outlet under. This way the waterflow will be more contrary to the airflow
(This is such a thing that 10 people will have 10 different opinions )
And install a strainer in your waterline to the IC !!!

Sorry I did not see this earlier. Make sure the water inlet line goes to the brass fitting closest to the throttle body (right side) and the water outlet line goes to the brass fitting closest to the supercharger (left side). This is very important for the performance of the intercooler.

The biggest challenge is to route the hoses that there are not get pinched or kinked and not get in contact with the muffler - from the front to the rear.
The radius with this strong hoses is at least 9,5" so the inner diameter from the hose is not squished.
A formed hose would be helpful to come from the front to the rear.
I will show you my solution when I am finish at this weekend.

do you have a picture of it, how it should be?
Because the pictures that I got with the Intercooler from hkss, shows something else!
Or I have to wait for hkss's solution!

The air tubes are different from the tube that pastormajorquin have - He have hard pipes!
The hard pipe that is going to the SC is sitting in a higher position as the air tube on the picture.
So this is the first reason, he cannot route the water "in" hose like at the picture.
The ellbow fitting must plug in the upper pos. - in the case of hard pipes (pastormajorquin).
After that,- the routing is a little different.
Maybe I am wrong - try first!!!
Take care of the space for the back-storrage-compartment-box bevore you cut the hoses.
As I say bevore, a formed hose or a second extension-ellbow-fitting will solve a lot of problems.
