    water passes thru the inner coil of the intercooler. (where you hooked the water hoses up to)

    the water lines flow from the pump (black hose with green stripe) to the intercooler. from the intercooler it goes to the exhaust manifold.

    There will not be any water flowing from the big pipes on the intercooler if thats what you are thinking?

    You sound really confused. Did you read the installation manual?

    the water flows through the same parts as when the ski is running in the water, just when it's on a hose it is reversed. I.E. water from the hose goes in what is the main water outlet when running in the water.

    according to what you written to me we have a problem when we ride in salt water.we have no possibility to wash the IC from the salt water
    and it's able to cause blocks in the IC.
    to my friend two pipes of the riva rear exhaust kit melted because a few water reached to the riva rear exhaust and just melted.the reason for that he rides a lot in the salt water ,the dealer said that salt water caused the block of the IC.
