    Intercooler life

    How long is the expected life of a inter cooler on a 300hp machine. I ride 80% saltwater and flush the ski after every ride with salt away? Never had a supercharged ski but looking at picking up a 2019 gtx 300 and have read about some failures.

    A long freaking time, especially since you are good on the flush. They seem to be very reliable. The 300 models had a big upgrade in the IC with all the drama BRP went through with the 260s. If you ever notice any decrease performance and it's not your super charger slipping from old age then I would start think about testing your IC. As long as your ski is running as you would expect, I wouldn't worry about it.

    A dead intercooler is not a problem anyways. It's an opportunity!��

    I appreciate the help. I want to keep the ski stock. I love my 18 fxho just want something with more features, and more power does not hurt either.
