    If you have the riva 3" air intake, sell it & go 4" kanoflex intake!80-100 rpm increase = 1mph right there.

    Get the fizzle 4" kit in the online store or do it yourself. Use the search for kanoflex

    8100 sounds about right. ou812 is right, the 4' will give more rmp's than a 3" and if you get more rpm's then you can pitch your prop to get back to around 8100 rpms and get more speed. With what you have you sound about right for speed, my RXT runs about the same with the same mods.
    I am sure others here will pitch in with their favorite cheap speed mods.

    There are shops that will take your prop and bend the blades to get you to a certain rpm, higher or lower so you are turning optimum rpm's for your motor. Also can be done to improve hole shot. A lot of members also pitch their props their self. Do a search for prop bending or pitching. There will be waaaaay better explainations than what I can give you.

    Without spending a whole lot of money I would recommend that if you have a complete stage 1 kit now, get the stage 3 SC upgrade, 42Lb injectors, XS Intercooler, and as for a prop I would highly recommend contacting Duke (on the forum) to get you setup . He can also help with some other stuff too. If I remember correctly with full stage 2 components as I listed I was consistently at 73.6 MPH.

    Here is my listing in the speeds database.
