    Alternative to free flow cauing HI TEMP on rxp

    friend put in a custom stainless steel elbow pipe as a replacement for the riva free flow elbow...

    during the run today he kept getting HI TEMP on the console

    lifting the seat allowed him to run some more but eventually got the alert..

    also water is getting into the hull... we are assuming that because the pipe was not flared on either end that it is leaking both water and exhaust gas into the hull....

    Hey camar0 i put a custon stainless elbow on my X in place of the resonator, And havent had this alert at all. I've done about 5 hours.. However i did have the ends of the pipe flared. Tell your mate to get the ends of the pipe flared, If that pipe blows off hes in big trouble I have heard numerous stories of crafts sinking!!
    However i can't see not having the ends flared causing it to leak
