    I have been running a water to air cooler for quite a few yrs now and dont run a strainer. Have it out of the boat and backwashed it a couple days ago and didnt get anything out of it, and it had full flow.

    I don't run a strainer either, pump to ballvalve then into cooler, outta cooler to motor. It gets flushed yearly and gets pickled in coolant for the off season to keep it from mineral corrosion.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    It's not a bad idea , I personally like to keep it as cool as possible for racing. Need it cold at idle so it absorbs well during the pass. My datalogs show intake charge temps only rising 20* from idle to letting outta the throttle on 24lbs boost, say 700ft pass. Starts around lake water temp and ends up at ambient air temp basically. Also keeps some heat in the motor since water leaves cooler then goes into block.

    another concern I had was the water pressure from the jet pump going thru the IC, do you regulate it ?

    Nope, i run a 8an line from pump to transom(cuts volume down), inside boat I have a gate valve , from there on it's 10an going into cooler, outta cooler then splits into 8's going into each side of block, 8's outta block and merging back to a 10an overboard hose. I have to slow flow down to keep engine temp above 160*, where my efi is happy. Did the last boat same way

    I do. -16 to sea strainer then to IC. Two -12 dumps. You can see it under the swim step. If I had to do it over again I would have skipped the sea strainer.

    Take the dump line from the pressure regulator and run it to the intercooler, did this on my last blower motor and worked great. No water at idle and when you accelerate the regulator dumps out the extra water into your cooler

    A water pressure regulator from Hitechperformance was used.

    Instead of dumping the water overboard with the hose and dump shown in the picture the water ran through the intercooler first then 2 dumps out the intercooler.
