Question about Groco Strainer install?
I am about to install my water strainer, thanks Jerry, and wanted to make sure I have my hoses correct...99% sure but want 100%!
Hose from pump area to front (located between two air/boost outlets) of X/S Intercooler is "in" correct...? My Groco should be placed in line there...right?
The hose going to back of X/S, in the way back corner of my ski...where OPAS once was,...is the outlet waterline, running to exhaust and it is to be left alone...correct?

I put mine on the this way. The hose with the red strip from the transom went into the strainer. The hose out of the strainer goes to the rear of the ic. The hose on the front of the ic goes to the exhaust manifold. This worked more easily for me.

I am confused if ''it really doesn't matter''...I thought the goal of the Groco was to strain the water after the pump but before the I/C....which is what I believe my first post would accomplish...
I have a line coming from the pump area (transom) to the front of my X/S, connecting between the two air (boost) connections... the goal of the Groco is to strain that waterline right...the pump to I/C line...?
What has me really confused is when I go to the X/S diagram on their web page it says the front water fitting is the "exit" and the rear is the "in"...does the design of the X/S make it not matter which direction the water flows....?

Arny i dont believe it does matter but this is it:
Red banded line from transom to groco
groco to back of cooler is prefered (then it IS STRAINED BEFORE COOLER)
from front of cooler to exhaust and u HAVE IT Bro!

Lafjax meant it doesnt matter which end u pump water into first is all he meant! he does want u to install GROCO BEFORE cooler inlet regardless of which end of the cooler U use for the INLET! get ur done!

The other trick that some use is to hook the strainer backwards...out is in, in is out...that way when it traps the crap you can see it on the outside of the screen instead of inside the screen. Makes it easier to see and keep clean.

Pump (transom) line to groco...groco to back of X/S....front of X/S to exhaust connection....
This is the preferred method that will strain the water before the intercooler correct?
