    Dirty IC pipes

    I pulled my IC pipes today and noticed they were pretty dirty in there. How are these things getting dirty ?

    Those look like plastic Riva uits, and if they were coming from the SC to the IC, then that looks to me like a combination of sand and melted plastic...

    They are the RIVA ones , its the one coming from the IC to the throttle body. It doesnt really look melted in there, its just dirty ???

    water intrusion would be a leaking intercooler

    Is the boat running choppy at WOT? Try running it with that tube removed and also the seat removed. If you see water coming out of the I/C on that side you will know it is bad. The only way I could see sand getting in that side is a leaking core.

    I had checked it for any leaks and it didnt seem to have any. How could this be tested to be 100 % sure that it is ok ? This IC doesnt even have 20 hrs of use...

    Steve could this be tried on the flushing hose, or does the ski have to be in the water, is it ok to run open throttle body ? without it going throug IC. What is the purpose of running it without the seat ? thanks guys !!

    What do you mean by choppy ?
