High Temp Alarm Gibson
Out on ski last week all running great:
Fitted Gibson exhaust with new T and even with tap closed get a high Temp Alarm at WOT .
Have not yet drilled out the pisser holes?
What is the Cure drill out the pisser holes have read about fitting a resistor in line but dont think this is the cure ?
External intercooler is clean also the filter so it has to be water getting to the gibson or lack of.
Have just taken off a gutted OEM box that worked fine but on the oem boxes the temp sensor is on the outlet not on the inlet to the box?
Thanks in Avance
Speck as follows :
Riva Ecu 50Ib injectors
Valve train upgrade
Gyco water strainer
Riva 3inch intake inside
15-19 with stainless liner
Riva pro series block offs

I have no idea. I just installed my gibson, drilled pisser holes to 1/4 inch and ran water to gibson from bottom of j jpipe. I ran ski hard for 2 hours this past weekend and with or without water feeding gibson i never did have temp sensor come on. In fact i could grab the j pipe with no problems.

Thanks for the advice
Checked pisser holes with pipe and clamps all looks good so i think i will drill the pisser holes out and try first.
The J pipe does not feel hot when you stop or the Gibson , so hope the bigger holes will help

just sent you a email steve. on any exhaust system from seadoo the temp senser is on the outlet. on the gibson it is on the inlet closer to the heat from the engine. we have found that by drilling the holes on the pisser to 1/4 it cures the problem. it's just that water may not be touching the senser to cool it.
