    From one adrenaline junkie to another

    New RXP owner. Boy am I having fun with the new toy! Need to take it to the next level. I've spent many hours researching the net and reading past postings. I think I know which way I want to start. I sure would appreciate some feedback before I start writtting the checks.
    Planned modifications to my RXP
    RIVA Stage 1
    Thru hull exhaust
    RIVA Pro Series blockoffs and sponsons
    Ride plate
    VTS extension rod
    Finger throttle and extentions
    Reverse bucket mod
    Ride plate holes and intake grate holes filled with silicone (JB Weld stick or PC 7 Epoxy Paste)

    Are there any compatability issues with my planned modifications? I think these changes are a good starting point and that I am getting the most bang for the bucks, am I? I am hoping to do 75, is that too optimistic?

    In any event, I figure these changes will keep me happy for a few more weeks

    Thanks in advanced for any suggestions.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Thats a great list of mods you have there. The only thing is there is currently no aftermarket rideplate available for our skis. Also, 75 is too far fetched. The only way you will get big numbers like that is to install an external intercooler and even then some people don't achieve that.

    Definately use some JB Weld or something solid to fill in the ride plate holes. This mod alone is good for 1 + mph

    Good luck!

    ditch the RIVA Pro Series blockoffs and get the RE ones from Jerry. Upgrade that super charger clutch. If you have the money get the stage 2, sounds like you will go that way at some point so why not now?

    welcome to the forum. I would definately change out to the metal washers, to give you peace of mind, before you do anything.

    Thanks to all.
