    removing the stock IC ???

    I have removed the stock IC from the TB and going to external IC upgrade. after getting the stock ic out, it looks like there maybe a gasket at the end of the stock IC that did not come out with the IC. Do i need to fish inside the TB and remove it or is it ok inside the TB?????

    You should have two O-rings on the Stock IC.

    I had to remove them and use them for my RR stock IC block off.

    i would get my hand in there and fish it out, you dont want that thing bouncing about, it'll upset the air flow,

    The gasket on the water intake side is there but the one the seats the IC in the TB was not attached to the IC when it was removed. The block off i have would not fit these gaskets.

    What year ski is it? '04 has two o-rings. '05 and up has "rubber band" type rings. Either way, make sure you have two. If not, I'd fish out the other.

    It is and 05 GTX LTD the IC has black marks around the bottom which look like the marks of a gasket.

    Rich... if you have trouble reaching it through the IC opening then try removing the TB for easier access.

    I originally cut the band to fit the block-off, but still found it better to add a bead of silicone sealer to the lip of the block-off... most people do this to ensure a good seal.
