    Groco Water Strainer

    Hello everybody,

    So far this forum has been amazing. I recently purchased a 2003 GTX SC and I must say that this thing is amazing. I can only imagine what the RXP is like. I am fairly new to the PWC family. My uncles used to own an old yamaha years ago and we haven't had one since then.

    I just had a quick question. I have been reading about the different things that you can do to prolong the life of your jet ski and I came across the Groco Water strainer. I have purchased the kit and it is currently being shipped to me. However, I just read in a search today that the 185hp 4-tec do not have intercoolers. Is this correct? If so, is there even a point to get the groco? I had read that it is to stop all the gung going into the intercooler. If I install the groco will it still provide a benefit to the motor?

    I appreciate all your help. Sorry for being such a newb.

    -Rob

    I'm not sure if you need the strainer like if you had an intercooler. You are correct that the 185 hp does not have an intercooler. You can install the strainer anyway just as a preventive measure. You can also add an external intercooler and then you already havve the strainer for it.

    I thought about an after market intercooler but I don't think that I am going to mod this jet ski at all. I bought this together with my cousin and I don't think that he is going to want to mod it.

    I had planned on buying an RXP next year on my own and then I could do whatever mods I wanted to it.

    So is it agreed that I do not need the strainer then?

    mksmi-Here is a link to a pic that you requested. It is mounted on the right hand side of the ski. I used a bolt that is already there that is for the rear grab handle. Then just run the hoses.

    Or do a search, there are good pics around

    No problems what so ever, I had to replace some hose to get the correct length. I got the hose from auto parts store. Its just 3/4" hose. When you run hose just make sure you don;t have any bends so tight the hose kinks.

    Just for info. The water thru the hose is all pressurized It flows just like a garden hose does.
