    Default Chiller plumbing

    I'm installing a chiller in my 21' Daytona (jet application). I want to know if the lone water supply off the pump (Dominator) is enough volume for my engine, jacketed headers, and a chiller ? I really don't want to add any more holes to the hull unless nessesary. I'm hoping to use the existing supply line, but not sure if it's got enough volume ?

    Hey man, I run a stage five intercooler , water jacketed exhaust, and still have to run a bypass to keep the press. down. I tell you now that single tap puts out plenty of volume and press. to take care of anything that you want to do. You'll still want to run a bypass or a regulator to keep the pressure under controll or you'll have head gasket problems or blow your intercooler up.

    I just force feed mine off the back of the boat. -16 in, two -12s out. No pressure valves.

    Why not use the water that is getting dumped overboard from the pressure relief valve?

Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    They don't take a ton of water. Bigger concern is getting the h2o out. I have one exit line with no pressure relief, and another with.

    I don't want to use clamshell's if at all possible. Like I stated in my question, no added holes in the boat.

    I have solved the water getting out of the chiller problem. I plan on welding in some bungs near the end of Lightnings. This should make getting the water out of the chiller neat and efficient. Most important question I have, is 1 water inlet going to supply enough volume ? DMOORE, you said they don't need much water, I've been told differently ??? But I have no idea, as this will be my 1st chiller.
