    Leaking Riva IC what will it do?

    I tested my Riva IC and it didnt leak, but it sure seems like allot of water is getting into the throttle body, now I know there will be condensation hot air and cold water but how much is there? What will it do to the engine?
    Thanks,

    I noticed quite a bit of water/condensation in my piranha intercooler today and before... I plan on testing it tomorrow when I can get a fitting.

    My piranha intercooler has about 12 hours of salt water use on it. I flush all the time. My guess is its just condensation and it really won't hurt the motor, just not enough of it to cause damage.

    How much is a lot of water ? And if you pressure tested your Riva IC and you have no leaks then you may just some condensation which is pretty common. How did you test your Riva Intercooler ?

    If it has a leak, the motor will miss, stutter, and run like crap above 6000 RPM's. Condensation is normal and not harmful.

    I took it out made sure it was dry inside hooked a garden hose with some fittings I made, than on the outlet I put a ball valve and shut it off and let it sit for about a hour than looked to see if any water was inside of it. Didnt have any so I assume its good

    Looks like your IC is fine, how much water are you getting to the throttle body ? Is it running out or can you just see on the inside of your IC pipe ?

    Do you have the condensation spots on just the inside portion of the outlet side of your IC or, on the inlet and outlet ?
