    Waterflow restrictor???

    When you seperate the pump fram the shoe, there's a yellow ring that restricts the waterflow. Is this something I should make bigger? Or would I end up with too much pressure on the coolingsystem then?

    Each 4-tec has a specific reducer Yellow is for 215 SCIC.......keep it as is unless you have a need for more water........if your waterlines are as they were from the factory leave the reducer as is.

    Thanks

    Any other opinions?
    I was thinking about giving the intercooler more water/cooling...

    Not a good idea?

    I accidentally ran without it at all for several hours with the stock IC. No ill effects, but I was probably very lucky. When I got my external IC, I used a drill to open up the hole, but just ever so slightly, to feed the intercooler with a tad more flow. I have no data on any benefits, it just made sense to me with a larger intercooler, but not necessarily something I'd recommend that everyone do.

    I have also opened the hole a tiny bit... No problem so far. But when I mount the new and bigger external intercooler, I will mount a minimess (hydraulic messure-point) to the intercooler. That way I can use my very accurat gauge (0,001bar accuracy). The gauge will tell what my highest peak was during testing.
