Also, my Cummins is keel cooled and the exhaust manifold is cooled with coolant. not raw water. If you had to buy a full-price manicooler, because you may want to leap on it some day, why not dump the salt water and cool it with coolant? At least it will last longer as long as you change your coolant as per the manual.
Would you mind explaining your exhaust system a little more? Looks to be wet exhaust so where are you getting the cooling water from? Do you have a separate pump that supplies cooling water? Just trying to learn a little more. All I have ever had is dry exhaust systems.
Thanks, David

That was not my exhaust but a photo of a Yanmar installation; mine is a Cummins and completely dry stacked. Never want a salt water cooled boat again.

I was just trying to show a little interest and suggest a solution to the Perkins crowd but I am obviously a slow learner.

Any other ideas out there or does anyone else need the same manicoolers? Perhaps we could get a group of us together and order in volume to bring the cost down.
We spoke to MESA also; we would be willing to be part of a group to have the first Manicooler fabricated. Is any one else willing to commit?

The terms multi-cooler and mani-cooler as sometimes get used interchangeably. You need to be exactly sure what you've got. The multi-cooler is also used on non-turbo engines. Those engines have a "turbo adapter" in place of the turbo.

From the Perkins manual:

PERKINS 6.354M mainfold/heatexchanger

Two in KS.

Knock Wood, but all is well with Twin turbo Manicoolers since 1981-82.

Yes, I always wondered why both terms were tossed around, and which one I actually had. (Turns out it's the multi-cooler.)

Thanks for the education!

I am considering pulling the trigger on the Multi cooler for the ST.63544 M with MESA; would you consider going in on the first one as a group
