    Default ProCharger retrofit

    Hi all,
    Recently picked up a procharger with intercooler for chevy and am looking at installing it in a jet boat application, right now everything looks ok hardware wise but I'm not sure how to route the water to and from the intercooler. Currently H2O comes in from the pump,preheats in the exhaust manifold, runs into the engine, then out a thermostat controlled housing to the exhaust riser which dumps to thru transom exhaust. Should I run the incoming line from the pump to the intercooler first and maintain the rest of the plumbing as is?or is there another way? Looking for some input here . thanks JC

    tee off the water before the manifolds, one side to the engine
    and the other to the intercooler, also remember you do not want water
    going to the intercooler at idle especially if your running a carb.

    you also do not want any water pressure in the intercooler, dump it
    after the cooler.

    one way of doing it would be to install a water pickup on the ride plate
    or transom to feed water to the IC and leave the current system alone.
