    I just golt my first glance of the Riva IC and it looks like (and based on comments added by SHOBiz in his posts) it adds one supply to the IC and removes the connection between the IC and engine cooling systems.

    The R & D Engine Cooling system adds a total of three supplies: Engine and Oil (from the strainer where the added Riva strainer takes its supply for the new IC) as well as an IC supply (from the gay spray).

    IMHO, for cooling the entire ski, the R & D kit is better because it adds supplies to the engine as well as the oil cooling. They both add an IC supply but the Riva goes one step further by removing the connection between the engine and IC (making the IC cool better). But how hard could that be to do?

    I will ultimately have both for whatever that's worth.
