    XS IC leaking

    Been runnung the XS IC for about a year now with great results. RXT 73.0 RXP 75.2. Went to the Delta over the weekend all of a sudden The RXT lost power. I found that the cap that I used to seal the 3/4 tube where I had origonally installed the BOV had blown off. Note: Not running the BOV anymore since the install of Jerry's washers. Re installed the cap everything was ok. Shortly after went back out and the motor stumbled and then cleared. This happed several times. Took it back in pulled the IC and sure enough a small amount of water in the IC. I dont see how the cap blowing off would have anything to do with the IC all of a sudden leaking. Coincidence,perhaps. I havent heard one report of any of the XS coolers leaking. Comments please.

    I've noticed a slight drop or two, but that was collection of cendensation....You'll need to remove the IC and hook it to a hose after you've let it air out for a day or two....if there is a hole, you'll see it puddle....

    RR intercooler seems the only route for salt. That or the stock cooler like I went back to.

    Good thing is the XS is cheap enough just to replace the unit.
