    riva intercooler water flow

    Does the water flow through the riva intercooler really matter?

    I don't see anything marked on the intercooler so I figure the flow through the core isn't critical?

    You want the water flowing in to the fitting closest to the air outlet. In this case the fitting on the left.

    yes because the colder water will be on the intake side of the IC and colder water up front will cool the air better...

    OK thanks guys. Due to room limits and hose lengths I ran the hose opposite, which sounds like it will work but isn't the best performance wise.

    I'll swap it later this week, what a bitch cause I need to remove a bunch of $hit.

    and if you dont have a strainer for that intercooler I would advise you to get one before you hit the water with the new intercooler
