    INTERCOOLER what one to buy ???

    What are the best intercoolers to put in a rxp/rxt. there are huge price differences. has anyone done any tests on current brands XS, PIRANHA, RIVA,ROTAX etc to see what has a better cooling temp and flow rate. i ordered a couple of XS coolers to see how they go(not here yet). i`m in AUS and could only find them to buy from in UK on ebay. then i saw them shipped from USA. are these UK or USA made what prices are you guys paying for them in US dollars ? any help would be great full thanks.

    At the price point XS IC's sell for trust me they are not made where anyone speaks English. I'm sure these IC's have heard Mandarian or maybe Cantonese.

    Uhmm...I wasn't addressing where they're made...just what we could get them for.

    Or just get the Piranha and not worry about shipping from the US.

    RIP OFF.

    Charges 800 dollars for a XS IC with some silicone hoses and a block off and NO BRACKET.

    The Piranha kit in Jerrys store is a FAR better deal.

    what about the XS intercoolers. they are cheap as. is it a case of you get what you pay for ? i`m not concerned about brackets and block offs as we can fab them or buy the block off. has there been any problems with the XS that anyone knows about ? the piranah definitely works well on one of our ski`s that we look after, 2yrs running and no leaks as yet. i was just wondering about what else was on the market that wasn`t crap

    There are a ton of guys including myself that run the xs IC. I got mine from jrFizzle and have not had any problem. There had been some discussion on the XS having core problems but it was only a couple of guys and the vast majority had not had any leaking or other problems(if i remmeber correctly). Danny did flow testing on the major IC and found that the XS flowed the best but that the riva cooled the best. I think that it was a possible conclusion that the difference between cooling and flow from the riva and the xs was marginal and for me the huge money difference made it easy. Just search for it and you can see the results.

    In US and UK the official language is English. In China, where these IC are manufactured, the official languages are Mandarian and Cantonese.
