Fixing a leaky IC? Anyone?
Guys I have a Leaky IC that I would like to see if can be fixed.
Please post info on this or the shop that can do it!

You can get an ebay one for 120.00 shipped. Probably the same $$ as getting yours fixed.

I agree, but I want to use the smaller Riva unit. More space.

Austin, there is a smaller size XS style IC that is real close to the size of the Riva too, look at www.siliconeintakes.com
As far as leaks, what I did with my XS is hook up air to both of the water fittings. I went to Harbor Freight and the local hardware store and got fittings that allowed me hook air directly from the compressor to the 3/4" water lines with no chance of leaks. One line had a quick connector to the air compressor, the other had a plug on the end. I dunked the whole IC in a wheel barrow filled with water, turned on the air compressor and let it build up to 50 lbs pressure then turned it off. I watched the IC for awhile, no air bubbles whatsoever.

Yea, I like that, SO why mess with my Leaky $800 piece of junk anyway.
$120 or so I can get this.
HOW does it perform?
