    Talked to Riva about plastic pipes

    I called Riva to talk to them about the plastic pipe on the intercooler Bubba is out till the end of the week so I talked to Mark in parts

    I told him about my problem and he said they are having some issues with the plastic for people that are running different SC impellers and that they are making a upgrade kit to replace the pipes and couplers and they should be avalible in 2 weeks or less I think after talking to Mark that the stage 3 will have metal pipes. The kit will also include the bigger blow off valve and the cost will be around 500

    I ask him about just getting one pipe and he said it would be a kit only so Jerry can you help some of us out with this you have more pull with Riva than I do may be some kind of discount or be able to order just some of the items I have a hard time paying 100 for the 1 intercooler pipe and 180 for the exhaust pipe after I spent alot of money on something that should not melt in the first place

    I would be willing to preorder and pay for just the parts I need in metal if that would help and maybe they could not over charge us if we preorder them

    i'm inclined to agree... so they made it like the stage 3 will work with everything from stage 2... but so far the Vortech Impeller and plastic pipes are useless in the stage 3 kit.... which apparently is 900 bucks worth of product
