    If you use the CRC Corrosion Block [not 656] you will only have to spray it once a year. It is a very thick brown waxy film and stays put unlike the non-drying 656 [which I use to spray the rest of the engine].

    Re: turbo lubrication

    If Honda has it written in the manual to use CRC 6-56 then I would trust that stuff. Order the 1 gallon jug and use a spray bottle.

    Great info guy's, thanks.

    Re: turbo lubrication

    I have been thinking about taking some of the Green Grease that I use to pump into the grease fitting and smear it on the turbo and actuator. This seems similar to what you guys are taking about. The other option I have been toying with is removing the turbo and getting at least the actuator power coated and maybe power coating the whole turbo. I wonder if this would work. What temp is the turbo while it is running, ect?

    The cold galvanizing spray is a sacrificial coating of 95% zinc and 5% epoxy [to hold it in place]. Any other coating can continue to rust/corrrode underneath the coating. The zinc will have to slowly deplete before the steel can go back to rusting again.... Clear as mud?
    The CG spray is also the best thing going for your boat trailer/trailer hardware too for the same reason.

    Re: turbo lubrication

    Hey JR or anyone else, How do I go about lubing the throttle cable and steering system? I've done the throttle body and the turbo after everyride... I also grease my pump every month with a squeeze or 2 of green grease. I ride in salt and been noticing my turbo turning a brownish color is this something to worry about? All the clamps and screws look very clean, other than the actual turbo turning that color i see nothing else wrong with it. I follow all these procedures after every ride. I also wash my ski with turtle wax soap and wipe it down clean. Should I be cleaning the inside of the hull with anything??

    As long as you are not developing rust then you are fine. The wastegate acuator is part you really do not want to rust. I think you are in good shape. Just as long as you keep spraying it down you should be fine.

    Re: turbo lubrication

    If I ride in salt, I flush on the way home by stopping at a self-serve car wash and sticking the wand into the hose I stuck on the flush fitting [with soap]. I then rinse the inside of the engine bay [with soap] being carefull not to spray the intake filter on the turbocharger inlet. Once it has a chance to dry, I spray it with CRC all over the turbo assembly.

    I also spray my steering and reverse cable/bendix with CRC heavy duty corrosion spray to keep the salt out of all the threads/bolts.

    Isn't your engine still hot on your way home? I wait quite awhile before I feel the engine is cool enough to douse it in cold water .........................

    It does not matter. Honda PWC engines do not get too hot. No thermostat. They flip over all the time and get water in them with hurting cracking anything,
