Thread: Riva Thermostat

    Riva Thermostat

    I have Riva's full stage 2 kit installed on a 2006 RXT and have had problems with the intercoller getting clogged by grass and causing the exhaust alarm to go off. This I hope I have solved by putting an inline filter between the pump and intercooler.

    I have noticed that the engine compartment runs noticeably hotter with the intercoller installed, has anyone put the new Riva thermostat in? Has it made a difference in engine compartment heat or overall performance?

    The thermostat wont directly increase performance, but it does reduce heat fade which indirectly increases performance.... if that makes any sense

    Can you tell a difference in heat in the engine compartment?

    if you want one, I have a new kit in the box for $120 shipped. The OEM style clamps that come in the kit are missing, most like to use regular clamps anyway.
