Default Supercharger water intecooler feed line

Where is the best place to connect the water supply line to the supercharger water intercooler? Currently its has a tee fitting on the hose that goes from the outdrive to the seawater pump...

r,

Eric

Yes they are, the set up is new to me this year. In the process of reassembling, so no actual results. The reason I went with independent pickups instead of 2 stage pump was, at idle a cold inter-cooler can cause fuel to condense.

If you live in a hot climate area, you may want to push water through it all of the time so it doesn't detinate after idling for any length of time.

Multiple ways of doing it but as mentioned above climate and water temps have a lot to do with how you want to plumb it.
