I'd also suggest putting the T after the sea water pump. With the present set up if your intercooler drains down by itself, you could end up sucking air into your sea water pump which does not end well for the impellar.

All great ideas out there and thanks for the inputs...

An idea i thought of was i have another hole already drilled in my drive cavitation plate. The other side already has a drive shower.

My thought was to install another drive shower line on the cavitation plate and run a through transom fitting to a sea strainer and then straight to the intercooler. Should definitely have enough pressure running..

Seeing your location is Florida, curious would the water going through the cooler be salt water

yeah, a little drive shower line isn`t going to feed anything especially an intercooler. You need lots of volume and at least 10 psi.

Looks like a modified M4 cooler, small hose feeding it, I would put water to it from the sea water pump, it will still reach 150 or so degrees after a mile at or near wide open throttle.

I would expect the salt to eat or clog that thing up, I could be wrong.

I also wonder about the condition of your air filter, could just be the picture.

GPM- it's currently teed of the sea water pressure hose. This was an older pic as I have removed the air filter and have a supercharger mesh cover on the inlet to prevent debris from getting in there
