    Anyone else have the issue of the o2 sensor getting soaked and failing within 20 min?

    Ski is a svho with the Riva piece that the o2 sensor goes into. Tried the Innovate spacer and it's still soaked when I pull the sensor out.
    Only cooling system mods are the dedicated intercooler line off the pump and the original intercooler line is going into the side of the block where the anode was.

    Riva waterbox. My ski has the Riva box as well and I get 2 seasons out of an o2 sensor and I leave it in the exhaust year round.

    Never seen that issue with the Riva waterbox especially with a heat sink.You may be passing through one of the manifold gaskets.That happened to me once and I kept killing sensors

    Try putting a barbed brass reducer in the water line, my buddy had the same issue with his riva box. It helps dry out the waterbox.

    Something like this.

    I actually use a piece of old co2 line it's thick rubber and fits right in the hose. I cut a half inch piece and threw it in the line a few days ago but I haven't tried it yet. I assume your talking about the line that goes from the voltage rectifier to the top of the exhaust pipe?

    Yeah that incoming waterline to the header. Just cut the line in half and put the brass fitting in there. Pay attention to the waterbox temp, don't go to small on the I.D of the brass fitting.

    Yeah I don't cut anything I just throw it in the line and I'm done. The line from the header and the line to the rear of the pipe are 2 different lines. Lemme find a picture
