    Ultra 260x Water in Intake

    Hi Everyone,

    I keep getting water in my intake catch tube. I am not ridding it hard or submerging the front bow. It seems if I run at a higher rpm more water comes in. The clear tube sometimes will pop off because of a lot of water getting in. The hull inside is bone dry (until the tube pops off). Im stumped and dont know what could be causing it. Maybe inter-cooler leaking and then mixing with the charged air? Any input is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Justin

    When u say intake do u mean in the inlet manifold...
    If that's the case that can be common in high humidity regions.... the intercooler is a part time water maker .... U can restrict the water flow to reduce the cooling effect ... hence stop condensation effect as much....

    The water is collecting in the airbox inlet tube (plastic intake directly under the little storage cubby). Im in NJ so not really that humid. But even on days were there is little humidity in the air it will do it. It is fine if I keep it below 4k rpm. As soon as I do 5 or above water will starting coming into the tube and then eventually blow off. Any ideas. Its super frustrating and I cant figure out what it is.
