    water flow on the hose???

    When you run the ski on the hose is flow reversed???? I just finished plumbing my XS intercooler this morning & I started it up on the garden hose to test for leaks & my flow is reversed???!!!! Water seem to be leaving the ext man and going to the front of the IC ....out the back of the IC to the stainer and out god knows were ( the pump i think)

    The way I have it plumbed is: from the nipple on the pump tunnel to my strainer....to the back of the IC from the front of the IC to the nipple on the ext manfold.

    Whats going on here????

    Yep, flow is reversed when you use the flush port.

    Thanks Jerry...I was freakin out.....I used clear hose for the new IC plumbing now could see the flow direction....I used to have goodyear heater hose and could not see the flow.....


    On a side note....is my 14/19R going to hate me with this IC??? If I was perfectly dialed for RPMs with the stock IC.....should I add a few MM before I hit the water???
