    Intercooler water

    The intercooler uses the sea water correct?
    I flushed mine right after using it(Ocean riding)
    The way the book says.
    The salesman told me he believes it uses a heat exchanger

    It appears to me it uses sea water though.

    welcome to the forum.
    the ic uses what ever water you are riding in and then is ran thru the exhaust.
    The engine uses coolant and is closed loop cooled via ride plate.

    An intercooler is a heat exchanger just like the ride plate or radiator of a car.

    Ive been running Grand Nationals for a few years,I know what an intercooler is
    I just wasnt sure if it used outside water or it was closed loop like the
    cooling system.
    Thanks
