    Running a RIVA here. Better hookup, no loss of speed, maybe even a slight gain of less than .5mph. Would be willing to try an R&D for even better hookup as others have also reported no loss of speed with that grate as well but definitely no gain.

    Same here. No speed loss, maybe slight gain. Reduced bow drop on decel.

    Same results for me with the Riva...much better rough water hookup, no cavitation with the PPK & slight speed gain. I didn't test back to back since I was waiting for the silicone to cure, but it was consistently .2 faster than my best speeds with the stock grate...although some of that gain may have been from filling all the gaps with 4200. I've heard the same thing as Hitman about the R&D.
